Pregnancy Yoga

Feel the benefits of breathing with the diaphragm Breathing. It’s natural. Our body does it all on its own. Really we don’t need to think about it. Except most of us don’t allow our bodies to breathe its natural spontaneous full breath. We restrict it – and ourselves. We don’t restrict our breath on purpose […]

What’s your due date?

by anjayoga

Should we stop talking about due dates? Do you expect your baby on the due date? And if you are pregnant  (and around your due date) or overdue are you getting slightly annoyed with the constant enquiring whether you have birthed your baby yet?

Is my Root Chakra imbalanced?

by anjayoga
