Hi ladies, needed some help please. I go to Yoga classes with a few of my friends, one of whom is 18 weeks pregnant, so i know it's safe but i know there are moves i shouldnt do anymore. just wondered if anyone could give me a reason as to why i cant do them other than saying i'm pregnant as we miscarried at xmas at only 4 and a half weeks so i want to delay telling them our news for as long as i can. I'm 5 weeks and 4 days at the moment and dont really want to miss the classes for the next 7 weeks! any advice would be fabulous x

Tell the teacher you're having some back problems, and that you may have to sit out some exercises or take it easy for a while...try to sit near the back of the cla__s, no one will be watching you then and you can take it easy when you want to.

You can also use carpel tunnel syndrome as an excuse - that will get you out of quite a few of the taboo inverted poses. Another good idea might be to take a pre-natal yoga cla__s on your, find out moves that you can easily subst_tute for the taboo ones, and just do them when everyone else is doing the other excercises, and hope no one will notice or comment on the slight variation.

thanks ladies, not sure we have any pre natal yoga cla__ses in our area which is a real shame but the excuses are great, thanks for your help!

the hospital i'm delivering at has prenatal yoga and i'm planning on going to that soon. i'm 19.5 weeks so i feel its safe. they don't let you in the cla__s if you're under 14 weeks and you need a dr.'s note to get in even after 14 weeks. you could also use GAS as an was a fitness instructor for many years and the pregnant women were always pa__sing in yoga even the non-pregnant participants pa__s gas frequently. good luck with everything!
