Music for Meditation
  • YouTube Channel Nu Meditation Music.  I like their Indian Background Flute, Hatha Yoga Music

  • I believe they also have some tracks that are called “Chakra Healing.”  I haven’t vetted those.  

 

  • Spotify:  You can also check out my Spotify playlists. The top few playlists are excellent for meditation.

Pilates and Yoga for Pregnancy and Postpartum--Safe, Trusted Information

Yoga Prop Recommendations

For Regular Yoga, I recommend everyone have a Yoga Strap at the very least.  Ideally you have 2 blocks as well.

 

If you take Pilates or Core Yoga, Pilates rings are great.

 

Recommendations:

 

Yoga Straps:

Any yoga strap is fine for my class, but if you are 6 feet tall or taller, you will need a strap that is 8 or 10 feet long.  My boyfriend is just 6 feet and tall and feels fine with an 8 foot strap.

 

If you are planning to use your strap for a quadracep stretch, you may want to invest in a good quality strap.  Hugger Mugger  is a brand I can recommend.  Gaiam I do NOT recommend.  The difference is the buckle quality is good with Hugger Mugger and Terrible with Gaiam.

 

if you don't plan to use the buckle, any strap is fine.  Just get a longer strap if you are 6 feet or taller.

 

Yoga Blocks

Yoga Blocks need to be 4x6x9 or bigger.  Skinny yoga blocks are not stable.  You can pick any color or material you want.  There are eco-friendly options.

 

Pilates Ring

This is a good one, good price, multiple color options
