Brittany Carson

Hello & welcome! I'm Brittany of Mama Bear Yoga. I've always felt guided through life by the pull of my heartstrings, and ever since I can remember, I have been fascinated by the creation of life and in awe of the female body. I believe all women have a deep intuition & sacred female wisdom within & through the practices of yoga & meditation, I strive to ignite this sacred femininity within myself & my students.

Fun Fact: I am in the last month of my studies towards becoming a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture.

Magnesium During Pregnancy

During this incredible time in our lives, our bodies are growing to accommodate the magnificent life within us, which may come with some muscle aches and pains along the way. Being #30weekspregnant myself, 5 things have helped me:

1. Natural Calm Canada's cherry flavoured magnesium powder

2. Yoga

3. Soaking in my Aphrodite Botanical Bath Tea

4. Acupuncture

5. Meditation

Sipping Natural Calm Canada's magnesium is a lovely way to end the day with deep calm & muscle nourishment. What’s even more amazing is that this Canadian company has been enjoyed and trusted for 38 years and 100% of their profits go towards helping end poverty through Thrive for Good (thrivegood.org).

This supplement is one I plan to continue taking postpartum too! If you’d like to try it, you can save 10% with my code Mamabearyoga when shopping at vistaglobalmarket.com.

Thank you, Natural Calm Canada & Vista, for sharing this product with me; I will always keep it stocked in my pantry from now on! <3

My ABCs

Every morning before breakfast, I take my ABCs.

I am talking about my daily vitamins —which have become even more important to me now that I’m trying to get healthy and recuperate post-Covid.

Vitamin D is an essential nutrient that most of us lack.

Often called the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D helps support our immune system. In addition, it aids in the strength of bones, teeth, and joint health and improves both mood and sleep.

So, of course, I make sure Vitamin D is part of my daily vitamin routine.

Pure Le Natural has convenient colourless, tasteless, non-GMO Vitamin D drops for you to take. Did you know vitamins in liquid form are more bioavailable? That means they are readily absorbed into your body.

So the drops aren’t just for your little ones anymore!

Make sure to head over to www.vistaglobalmarket.com and use code Voicebehindthelens for an extra discount!

Did you take your vitamins yet today?
