Prenatal Morning Yoga Flow

I have put this 20 min Prenatal Morning Yoga Flow together where we will be moving slowly from yoga pose to yoga pose, with full awareness on our breath.

I personally repeated these yoga asanas weekly and it made me really enjoy my pregnancy.

This pregnancy yoga class is for expectant mothers for all levels and for all trimesters. It can help you to prepare for labour and to bond with your baby, moving carefully from posture to posture.
Make sure you move slowly from asana to asana, if you need a rest in between, please take your time and pause the video.

Also, I would advise to talk to your midwife / doctor first, before starting with any type of exercise. This yoga routine is NOT recommended for women with complications during their pregnancy.

I hope you enjoy this 20 min yoga flow. I am looking forward to your comments below.

Prenatal Yoga For Hips & Hamstrings

I have put this 20 min yoga video together where we will be strengthening and stretching our body.
(Stretching: Never too much as our body is producing the hormone Relaxin, which helps to relax the ligaments in the pelvis and softens and widens the cervix).

As I have been experiencing very tight hips and hamstrings, especially during my last trimester, I have included a lot of yoga poses which can help you to release tension in your hips and hamstrings and enjoy your pregnancy.

Prenatal Gentle Yoga Flow

I have put this 20 min Prenatal Gentle Yoga Flow together where we will be strengthening and stretching our body.
(Stretching: Never too much as our body is producing the hormone Relaxin, which helps to relax the ligaments in the pelvis and softens and widens the cervix).

Especially in my first and third trimester I had to deal with fatigue and that is why I preferred a more gentle yoga routine. This short yoga routine targets the whole body and should make you feel great after!

Organic Hair Care Review

In this review I am talking about organic, sulphate- and paraben-free hair care I have been testing over the last few months, that is why it took me a little bit longer to publish this blog post.

I hope you enjoy reading my review. Let me know what your experience is with organic, vegan and cruelty-free hair care.

Would you choose the organic option?


NATULIQUE

When using the Natulique’s shampoo and conditioner, you can be assured that the ingredients are to 99% from natural origin, no parabens, no added silicone, no artificial colours.
They are certified to be vegan, animal cruelty free, with sustainable packaging and got the certification 360 Biocert Organic.

When using the shampoo on my hair I had to use the shampoo twice to get a bit more foam. Same for the conditioner, I had to use quite a bit as it seems like it disappears in my hair. Both shampoo and conditioner smell beautiful and leave the hair super soft, nourished and with a nice smell.


LESS IS MORE

The Less Is More products are sulfate-free, helping to clarify the scalp. They are specifically targeted to soothe irritated scalps like dandruff or itchy scalps.
I absolutely love the spa-like natural scents. They use 100% certified organic essences made of tea tree, rosemary and rose.

These products are certified to be 100% organic, vegan and cruelty-free.
Same with the Natulique products, you have to use quite a bit to get that foamy texture when washing your hair. Your hair will get a gentle wash and smelling fresh.

RAHUA

The Rahua products are one of the luxurious hair care products I have tried out. Not only because of its high price, but also once you use the product, you’ll understand where I am coming from.

You only need to use a tiny bit of the shampoo and conditioner to get that foamy texture. Your hair will feel moisturized.

I was struggling a bit combing my hair after using the products, but nevertheless I was fascinated by this beautiful smell of Palo Santo.
My hair was super shiny and silky after using Rahua.


MARROCCANOIL

Morroccanoil’s hair care is well-known in the hair dressers salons with its main ingredient, the argan oil.
Their range includes paraben- and sulphate-free shampoos and conditioners for different hair types.

When applying only a little bit of shampoo or conditioner you already get that nice foam, you will immediately feel that your hair is getting cleansed, nourished and shiny.

My hair was very easy to comb after using the Morroccanoil products.

FRESHLY COSMETICS

I have tested Freshly Cosmetics hair mask. It says it is silicon-free, but I could not find any certifications who prove that the ingredients are to 100% made of natural origin.
This hair mask includes 7 non-greasy, high quality vegetable oils, which help to nourish the hair.

Some of the ingredients are organic argan, macadamia, extra virgin chia, musk rose, almond and avocado oils. I love the smell of this hair mask, which is citrusy with exotic hints of papaya, orange, bergamot and lemon.

BEONME

The BeOnMe range I have tested is specifically for sensitive hair and scalp.

The products include wheat proteins which help to nourish and hydrate the hair.
The first time ever I have used a Pre-Shampoo and I am absolutely in love with it. It basically has the same effect like a really good conditioner, deep nourishing. My hair felt so soft after the pre-shampoo and it was so easy to comb my hair.
The products have a fairly neutral smell to it.

BeOnMe guarantees to be 100% vegan and cruelty-free.

The products are certified by ECOCERT Greenlife according to Ecocert Standard, proving that the ingredients contain natural ingredients.

ORGANIC PHARMACY

The Organic Pharmacy is well-known for using pharmaceutical-grade organic herbal extracts.

It says they use organic, natural ingredients, but there is no prove of any certifications for being 100% organic.

The products have a strong jasmine smell, so if you are not into jasmine, that might be the wrong choice for you.

Review

Now to sum it up, it really depends on what you are looking for. Ever since I am living in London, my scalp has changed to a bit more sensitive and irritated, as the water over here is hard and that effect the scalp.
I prefer a gentle hair care, that’s why I do like Natuliques products, as they are gentle to the scalp, but also cleansing. Rahua I do like a lot too, especially because they leave the hair super shiny and glamourous. Marrocconoil products never dissapoint either.

Have you ever used one of these products? What was your experience?
