Kristin McGee dishes on pregnancy—her own!

Celebrity yogi and Pilates instructor Kristin McGee is expecting her first child this July. McGee has trained many high-profile clients through pregnancy, so we were curious if her advice has changed now that she’s pregnant herself.

“When I used to work with my pregnant clients, I was always super cautious,” says McGee, “Now I realize that pregnant women are capable of doing a lot!”

“Yesterday, I was demonstrating a headstand to a client and she got nervous and said ‘wait, don’t do that,’” laughs McGee. “Once a yogi, always a yogi! People who were active and athletic can continue with their regular activities—with some modifications.”

After feeling nauseous and fatigued throughout her first trimester, McGee is now back to her vigorous yoga practice (minus deep twists and laying on her belly) and some strength training to prepare for labor and picking up the baby (specifically squats, lunges, and upper body work.) She’s also doing Pilates, focusing pelvic floor work that helps with both labor and recovery.

Does the star yogi see a prenatal yoga DVD in her future? McGee says there’s a definite need for a Prenatal Power Flow. “A lot of women can’t find an active enough prenatal DVD,” says McGee, “I want to couple that with a more restorative practice, too.”

Hopefully her fans can also look forward to Mommy and Me classes from McGee in the years ahead.
