November #YogaEveryDamnDay Challenge

Nov YEDD Collage
Well, for starters, you can see that I didn’t do Yoga all month long. I’m REALLLLLLLY slowing down now in my practice. I’m trying to keep up a daily meditation practice at least, but I gotta say, that I’m really looking forward to having this baby and getting back to my usual self again. All in good time though. For now, I’m happy to be at least accomplishing 9 poses a month. Here’s what I DID manage to squeak out:

I have been incorporating my Essential Oils into my Yoga and Meditation practice, and since doing so, it has turned my Yoga practice upside down. Sometimes even literally. This month, my only oil of choice was FRANKINCENSE. It gives me a great sense of calm and focus as I meditate or work on my Yoga practice. I am not ready to hang up the Yoga mat just yet during this pregnancy…and I honestly hope that day never comes. I really DO love my Young Living Essential Oils...and I don’t know where I’d be without them. I try to incorporate a different oil(s) every month into my practice.
This month, I’m 9 months pregnant and have been LOVING Frankincense in my diffuser as I do my Yoga. It’s GREAT for Meditation…which is mostly what my Yoga practice consists of these days. 
Frankincense
~Diffuse Frankincense during meditation for grounding and purpose. Applying this oil topically may help smooth the appearance of healthy-looking skin, and is excellent to use for massage after activity.

I am still enjoying this challenge…even if I can’t do it every single day anymore. Pregnancy is NOT a sickness. It is simply a variation of normal. Rest assured though, my Midwife is 100% up-to-date on all the poses I’m doing, and has continued to give me the green light to continue my practice…with some exceptions and modifications thrown in here and there.
I hope you are all doing well, and if you are interested in joining our Yoga For Every Body group on Facebook, you can join by clicking HERE. It is for all levels…from “I have no idea what I’m doing, but I’m interested” to “I own a Yoga studio”. Head on over there and introduce yourself! We love making new Yogi and Yogini friends, supporting and helping one another and finding new inspiration!!!
Namaste.
