    Sure can. I will definitely talk about this in the live Q and A.

    But generally when you’re first getting started I recommend planning a gentle class that would be mostly suitable for all trimesters and then modifying once you know who is there. So for instance offering bolsters under third trimester women’s back so that they aren’t flat on floor. Or offering alternatives if you have a women with pelvic instability.

    With practice you definitely get good at modifying.

    But at the start, remember like any yoga class it is on the woman to only do what feels right for her. You would remind them to rest when they needed. Come out of anything that doesn’t feel comfortable. etc

    You have a new student to your pregnancy yoga classes. How would you summarise in a couple of sentences what they need to be aware of in pregnancy classes to practise safely?

    Oh ladies, I am having an emotional week and these posts have made my heart so so happy. It touches me to hear how my work has impacted all of you and I really can’t thank you enough for sharing your stories.

    Kaitlin, I remember that first night in hospital with my first so well. Feeling so unsure about everything (and a little shell shocked by the experience of birth).
