She modified poses and we didn't go through the whole primary series or anything like that but loosely followed it. Her goal was to help make up for the fact that as a society we don't squat enough, if that doesn't sound too silly. So she chose poses to help make up for that. I loved it b/c there was also a lot of talk about thinking about the life growing inside of you and connecting to it. Also all the help with mule bundes (horribly mispelled) was nice and she taught us how to push during labor. Which whenever I remembered to it always got cheers from OB, midwife and dh. Which then helped me to feel connected back to my yoga practice which in term helped me feel more connected during labor.

I'm on my last week of the Bikram Challenge (going 5 times a week for 2 months). I'll be glad when it's over, cause I'm missing my other styles of yoga. I did get some great results though, and I'm so glad I could finish the whole thing.

How are you guys? Prepping for Thanksgiving?

Thought I would sub in here for November..

I have been off yoga for a few weeks now. Turns out the nagging pain in my ankle that was challenging my practice turned out to be a four inch tear in a tendon in my ankle.. SOOOOO, I had surgery.. hurray for me, right?? I am on week two of recovery and have three more to go in a hard cast before I am moved into a walking cast. Looks like it's going to be a long recovery for me, but I am anxious to get back to the heat soon. I know that going back to Bikram will bring healing even faster!!

Carole, how amazing that you were able to complete your challenge! I am jelous of you! Congratulations and I want to hear about these awesome results you got.

For everyone else, I hope you all are enjoying this gorgeous passage into the Holiday season..

Namaste and many blessings
Karen

Hello to All!
I am a long-time "lurker" on MDC and love the idea of participating in a yoga thread! I practice yoga daily, attend prenatal yoga once a week [soon to be twice--we talked our teacher into adding another class for us every week!] and am in a teacher training program. Glad to be here!
