Prenatal Yoga is great during all three trimesters


Fridays 10:45 AM at BUDDHI YOGA

Release, relax, and connect with your growing baby.

Can’t make it to class? Try my online prenatal yoga:


We all know how hard it is to find a studio that offers prenatal yoga, and if you do, the times usually don't work for you. That's why I decided to start offering online prenatal yoga classes so that anyone could join in, all you need is an internet connection. You can now enjoy prenatal yoga anytime, anywhere, even from the comfort of your own home.

The class is lead by me (Magdalena Patterson), from La Jolla’s beautiful Buddhi Yoga studio. Relax, release tension, connect with you growing baby and your changing body. It is so much more then a series of modified poses. it is all of the above and more. With breath work and meditation, you start preparing for the progressing pregnancy, labor and birth. Prenatal yoga helps you learn to be present and connected with your growing baby.

Why am I so passionate about yoga during pregnancy? I really believe it must be the most important time in a woman’s life to practice yoga. From the moment of conception, our baby experiences life through us, our emotions and state of mind. Our little baby feels our sensory impulses, and recognizes what brings us joy and what feels toxic. Deep inside the womb, our baby feels our neurological responses to daily situations. They can feel when we are stressed, and they can enjoy the moments of happiness and contentment with us. That is because whatever emotion we experience, our brain releases the corresponding hormones into our bloodstream. Those hormones cross the placenta and travel through the umbilical cord to our baby. .


Busting the pregnancy yoga and workout myths: Podcast by Mommy Workouts

I loved talking with Magdalena! After a while of shamelessly insta- creeping her account, I knew I just had to finally ask her to be on. Her Instagram, is the cutest! You see her, and her growing belly while practicing yoga with her 2 year old daughter. And it's real. Sometimes her daughter participates and sometimes she runs around. But you know thats life. And I love that Magdalena shows the realness and the acceptance of the fact that it may not be perfect but it is what it is.

So, for this episode I wanted to talk about some of the myths and benefits of prenatal yoga. I looked into Magdalena, and she is highly educated about prenatal yoga and it's so close to her heart that I knew she could give us really good insight. Especially if we are prego and hesitant to try it. 

She is truly the sweetest and I hope you find this episode informational and helpful if you are wanting to do yoga when you have a little bun in the oven.
