Gearing up to teach my first yoga class

I have been practicing all week, here and there, for my very first yoga class. I have taught other fitness classes, but never yoga. And no matter how many fitness classes one has taught, the nerves of a new class do not go away.

But with nerves comes excitement too. I do feel honored to be teaching others the gift that is yoga. And I feel lucky that students will actually be in my class. That isn’t a guarantee, you know.

Tonight is it, dear friends! Tonight is my first class. So earlier today, I put on my new maternity workout shorts that were gifted to me from For Two Fitness® to review and got to stretching. It was divine and I feel ready. Granted, I will still have the nerves as I drive up to the studio, but overall I feel ready.

I will provide an update on how my first class goes later this week on the blog. Today I want to talk about the shorts. I know so many other pregnant mama’s out there so let me just tell you, these are awesome! So comfortable and if it weren’t 50 degrees outside right now I would also wear these for my boot camp workouts.

I had never heard of For Two Fitness® before I got pregnant. And if you are into fitness like I am, you want to stay fit during pregnancy so as soon as my belly got bigger and my regular workout shorts got uncomfortable (there is nothing worse than doing squats with shorts that are too tight and don’t move with belly) I started looking for prenatal workout wear.

Here is a little about For Two Fitness®: For Two Fitness® is the premier maternity fitness apparel brand, offering performance apparel that functions and flatters like nothing else. They are committed to celebrate and support moms who are striving for healthy, fit pregnancies. Their fabrics are high performance, soft, moisture wicking, and originate from the same mills as the fancy athletic apparel you already wear. Maternity clothes are expensive as it is, so they work hard to keep these high end, specialty garments affordable. They offer basic neutrals and vivid, on-trend colors that pop. They also design all their own garments in-house and slogans are trademarked so you won’t find these cute tops anywhere else!

Love that! I am in my third trimester so comfort is HUGE for me. Here is a pic of me practicing my yoga in the maternity yoga shorts.

If you have been pregnant or are currently pregnant, did you purchase any maternity workout wear? If so, what has been a lifesaver for you?
