Are you interested in practice prenatal yoga at home? In this yoga blog, I am sharing the best of my prenatal yoga classes online. The prenatal yoga classes that I share in this yoga blog are perfect for complete beginners to yoga and in their second and third trimester: exception of the pregnancy yoga relaxation that is suitable for those in the first trimester.
As a mother of one, I can understand the excitement and the unknown of pregnancy and labour. Prenatal yoga was something I was so blessed to find, and I believe it supported me physically and mentally. It prepares me for labour and post labour in ways I did not even know was possible.
After the incredible journey I took with yoga during my pregnancy; I began to study yoga in great detail to have the skills and understanding to share it with others so they can benefit from its incredible gifts. I have been teaching yoga for over ten years and continue learning and sharing my teachings with you on the mat! Below are my best 5 prenatal yoga classes online so far, but first I wanted to answer a few common questions I get asked.
When should you start prenatal yoga?
It is recommended to start physical prenatal yoga after 14 weeks. In the first trimester, walking and resting is perfect, as this is the most delicate stage of the pregnancy. In the first trimester the body goes through the biggest adaption, the blood pressure drops, beasts swell and become tender. Hormones rise which can result in many other changes so taking it easy and allowing this time to breath, relax and rest is beneficial.
How many times a week should I do prenatal yoga?
This is a personal decision but to really get the benefits of the yoga weekly would be advisable if possible. If you can do a little each day: even just ten minutes of prenatal yoga this will be even more beneficial for you. Personally I did prenatal yoga every day, but it all depends on your daily life and how much you can fit in and when.
Set out a schedule for yourself: use the prenatal yoga classes online as a time to give back to yourself, connect to your baby and your changing body. The time you spend doing yoga will not only help you prepare for labour but it will also give you tools and ways to relax and stay calm during the day.

Right now is a perfect time to start beginners Yoga at home. In this blog, I will share as much information as I can to help you begin your yoga journey at home. I will share beginners Yoga videos you can start with to start your yoga journey, along with a few common questions about beginners yoga at home.
How do I start doing Yoga at home?
One of the wonderful things about yoga is it can be done anywhere and at any time: so there is no better time to start yoga than right now! To start doing yoga at home, all you need to begin with is a space in which you can practice your yoga. This space might be your living space, kitchen space, the end of the bed or even a spare room.
So you have decided on your yoga space, now get into something comfy! Clothes that you can move in. Take your socks off if you’re comfortable with bare feet. If you do not have a yoga mat, don’t sweat. Just put a towel down so you can grip! You just need something that will help you grip and not slip all over the place.
So now you’re ready to start your yoga journey: it’s as simple as that. You can add all your equipment and other add ons as you go. So which online yoga classes should you start with? which yoga is best for beginners? Let’s explore this further below.
What type of yoga is best for beginners?
Hatha Yoga is suggested to be the best for beginners as it can be one of the easiest yoga styles for beginners. Hatha Yoga gives those practising it the chance to hold the postures statically and ensure the alignment is correct. It tends to go slow to have an opportunity to hold the pose and breath why in the physical asanas.
Every Hatha Yoga class is different and depends on the teacher and also the level of the class. Some Hatha Yoga classes are more advanced and would not be suitable, to begin with. It would be helpful to start a beginners Hatha Yoga class to ensure that the Hatha Yoga class will be slower, and alignment cues will be given as a beginner to Yoga.
When you are comfortable with the alignment of common yoga poses as a beginner, you may explore different types of Yoga. Another style may suit you much better, like Hatha Vinyasa Yoga (movement with breath). But getting familiar with yoga poses will give you a good foundation for future yoga classes you explore.
How to practice online Yoga at home?
There are many online yoga classes and online yoga memberships that you can choose from, giving you the comfort to practice online yoga at home. Here I will share with you my own personal best beginners yoga at home online yoga classes.

Is having an online yoga membership a good thing? Can it work? In my own opinion, yes and yes! I only have my own experience to speak from, but my journey with teaching yoga has taken many directions, large and small, and I am happy to say creating an online yoga membership has been the best thing I have done so far!
Back when I began teaching Yoga, I would flit around here and their teaching all over the place: mainly gyms, tired and hungry most of the time. I then explored the opportunity of creating a beautiful yoga studio! And what a lovely place it evolved to be: but being tied to a business and a place was not something I wanted long term. When releasing the studio with a sad heart, it was the right time: I ventured back into the world of Yoga with new ideas and plans.
2020 was a change for many of us, and moving my yoga online was a great experience! I embraced it, and I love it! But let me be honest with you, completely real! The class you teach online, whether zoom or youtube, doesn’t have the energy you get in a physical class; it’s slow to build and sometimes painful and disheartening, but you save on time and get more done. You don’t have to travel; your kitchen is nearby if you are hungry, you can explore other creative ideas and have time to do other things!
I already had a few videos up on youtube: a YouTube channel I started seven years previously: but not with commitment to much regret now! But with the YouTube platform I created an online Yoga challenge (this one is my second challenge) that I wanted to do to support people during the pandemic: when it was coming to an end, I was racking my brains, how can I continue teaching my beautiful students!? My online yoga membership was born!
Online Yoga Membership
With the online yoga membership I get to teach my beautiful yoga students from the comfort of their homes! I tried different platforms, zoom and YouTube! It was such an exciting time to explore these options and make many mistakes along the way haha.

Are you thinking about creating a self-care routine and looking for some good self-care tips to get you started on your journey to a better all over wellbeing!? Well, you’re in the right place! In this post shares five best self-care tips that can help support you not only physically but also mentally! We will explore the 8 areas of self-care and what key self-care looks like!
I believe it is the small changes we make that create a huge difference. All these self-care ideas are backed by science, according to goodhousekeeping.com, which I was pleased to learn, knowing I am giving you valuable content.
What are the 8 areas of self-care?
There are said to be 8 areas of self-care and these areas can also be considered areas of key self-care that can be considered to enhance and look after your wellbeing: these areas are the following:
1 Emotional self-care
2 Spiritual self-care
3 Physical self-care
4 Psychological self-care
With some of these key areas of self-care in mind, below I share 5 best self-care tips that you might find useful when including new self-care ideas into your routine: followed by an extra bonus list!
1. RE ENERGIZE
If you are continually working, sharing and giving your energy away, make sure you arrive inwards to top your energy back up! Think of your energy as a cup, and everyone is drinking from that cup; sooner or later, it will dry up. It is so important you keep your cup full overflowing, actually, so the energy you share is the overflowing energy from the cup.
If we are continually giving from an empty cup, we may feel unmotivated, irritated, tired, and even angry. To combat this, you may find ways to top up by resting in a Yoga Nidra, reading, bathing, meditating, walking even just sleeping! All the things that refill you with energy, motivation, inspiration.
Researched and studies have found that exercise is a great way to look after your body and support mental health; it helps us sleep better, boost our mood, and manage stress and anxiety.
“Doing something physical releases cortisol which helps us manage stress. Being physically active also gives your brain something to focus on and can be a positive coping strategy for difficult times.”
What better way to look after your self than to get your body moving and the circulation flowing. Taking a venture into nature for a walk or run. If you are indoors, why not get your Yoga mat out and gently stretch the body.
If you want to learn about the health benefits of doing a Yoga practice click to take a look at one of my latest blog poses sharing 10 BENEFITS OF YOGA. When we exercise, we release chemicals such as endorphins and serotonin that can help boost our mood and the NHS state that it may support and improve the health of the cardiovascular system, reduce the risk of strokes, diabetes and cancer.
Depending on what we consume, it can make us feel excellent or rubbish; everything we put in the mouth has a certain amount of vitality and life force energy, or it doesn’t! Take time to think about what you eat and drink daily and try to do the very best you can for it. Knowing everything you eat or drink is feeding your body. Instead of drinking that fizzy drink, can you try to have a glass of pure, clear water? Take a small step to more self care, allowing them small step to make a significant change over time. Eva Selhub explains it wonderfully her article written on the Harvard Medical school website.
“Like an expensive car, your brain functions best when it gets only premium fuel. Eating high-quality foods that contain lots of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants nourishes the brain and protects it from oxidative stress — the “waste” (free radicals) produced when the body uses oxygen, which can damage cells.”
Self-care tip four is to clean and tidy your space. When we have an unclean and messy space, it has been studied and proven to affect us mentally and physically. When cleaning your area, it can have a profound impact on the way you feel. Here is s snippet from an article shared on Psychology Today.
“A 2010 study published in the scientific journal Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin used linguistic analysis software to measure the way 60 individuals discussed their homes. Women who described their living spaces as “cluttered” or full of “unfinished projects” were more likely to be depressed and fatigued than women who described their homes as “restful” and “restorative.” The researchers also found that women with cluttered homes expressed higher levels of the stresshormone cortisol.”
Have a little look round you right now and if things are messy and unclean, find time to clear and clean your space for better self-care; you may feel much better after!
5. DO SOMETHING YOU LOVE
What do you love to do, or what would you love to do that may be you have not done for a long time. It may be watching a feel-good movie, or maybe it’s walking in nature. But take time out of your week to do something that you genuinely love. Perhaps it’s an old hobby you used to enjoy; painting, drawing, singing, candlelight bath or writing. Self-care comes in many ways, and it is genuinely only you who know what you need to offer self-care to yourself.
What are some good self-care tips and ideas?
Above I list 5 best self-care tips in greater detail, here I will share with you some extra self-care tips and ideas that might be good to also include into your self-care routine!
Spend the whole day in bed!
Go to the beach
Get your nails done
Get your hair done
Go get a massage or get your partner to massage you!
I thought It would be best if I share a one-off post about who I am and why I am here! I’m not particularly eager to give myself labels of any sort: and I find I want to explore many ideas, topics, and I love a sense of freedom against who I am.
So here is what I do and not who I am; I am constantly changing and evolving, so who I may feel I am today may be different to whom I think I am tomorrow. I am constantly doing my best to be the BEST version of myself to share with the world.
People call me Katya: I am passionate about love, kindness, love, nature, family, pureness, honesty and oneness!
I love to study, research, and write. My favourite topic is Yoga: it may be online yoga, Hatha Yoga, bedtime yoga, back yoga, pregnancy yoga, mediation, Anything that is close and deep to the topic of Yoga I love!
My studies of yoga span out now over 16 years! I know, sixteen years, that feels like a long time, wowsers! That’s a lot of time studying and doing Yoga!
My Yoga journey became religious when I was pregnant! I did Yoga every day of my pregnancy: sometimes twice! I even remember the video and the teacher, Shiva Rea! (thank you, Shiva!) It set me up for a journey in Yoga I would have never expected to happen!
I trained to become a teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga: continuing to train in pregnancy and meditation! BUT me being me (the Virgo seeking more profound understanding in all I do), my training still goes on now reaching 1000+ Hours! I am now embarking on more Yoga training (USA) that I will be excited to share when I finally have reached all the needed teaching hours.
Ok, I haven’t always just done YOGA; I have a deep love for the arts! Especially performance and even from my school years being a thespian is running through my veins.
Before the pandemic hit, I was all set to do a masters MFA in Acting (my degree is in English and creative writing, believe it or not, lol)! I was ready! I wanted to emerge myself deeply in the study and skills of honing my craft as a performer!
I had my accommodation booked, and I could finally fulfil a deep desire to learn the art in detail. Singing and dancing and Shakespeare was calling me, but sadly due to the pandemic, all my plans changed!
You now find me homeschooling getting my son ready for his GCSE’s, and my Yoga is once again my entire focus. How life can flip in a matter of moments is quite something. I love my Yoga, so all is not lost, and I know in the future I may go back and reapply for drama school. I still do bits of acting/modelling when the jobs present themselves: Maybe I will share bits of my acting work as and when I do it.
I have some extremely beautiful and loyal students who join me every week for my online Yoga classes through my membership that I have created! These students I have a deep love for, and I really feel so lucky to have them join me and want to do online Yoga classes with me every week! I love being their yoga instructor! Thank You!
So this is why I am here! Because I simply love Yoga, I love writing, and I love sharing. I want to write about Yoga: all about it, every area of it: to share with you, to support your yoga journey if you have one, to help you start one if you don’t have one! I want to collaborate with others and build and create a community of sharing and caring to make the world a better place.
I currently teach LIVE online Yoga classes:
Wenesday: Hatha Vinyasa – 7-8:00pm (Intermediate)
Sunday: Hatha Yoga – 11:00-12:00pm (Mixed)
If you are interested in joining my online yoga classes please get in touch! I hope to see you on the mat real soon.
Thank you for reading to the end! I don’t like talking about myself: I feel it’s quite boring, so I cheer you for reaching the end of my waffle!
Dear friends and readers I wanted to share my top 40 favourite quotes on Gratitude with you that are perfect for every morning wake up. I love reading and sharing quotes in my yoga class and on social media and thought it would be a great idea to blog about it.
Gratitude is a powerful way to help us feel grateful and contentment for everything we have right here and now. It brings us into a state of peace and allows us to look beyond our worries and woes.

These beautiful quotes are perfect for setting you up for the day: they could also be used in your Yoga class if you are a teacher or just to read to yourself for inspiration and motivation. I would love you to share your favourite quotes in the comments.

Poem – This year, give thanks, for everything.
“Let the tingle of gratitude move into the bones of your body, from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. With each beat of your heart, “Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. ”Dance for the joy, for the love, for the freedom, for the food in your belly, for the beating hearts of the beings that surround you. Sing for the sorrows, for the heartbreak, for the sadness you can’t seem to shake, for the losses, for all those faces that no longer exist in this realm. Speak with words that come straight from your heart, be honest, be kind, be love.” – Bryonie Wise
