You’re pregnant! Yay!
But…you’re also achy. Your body is stiff. And you still want to keep active? Give YOGA a go!
If you haven’t already heard, the benefits of prenatal yoga are endless. From keeping your body moving to strengthening the back and pelvis to practicing some amazing breathing techniques….the list goes on and on.
While pregnant with my daughter, Rosie, prenatal yoga was one of the only things that kept me from going crazy in those last few weeks before her arrival! It provided me a sense of inner calmness and helped reduce the swelling in my ankles…it was a win-win.
I’m often asked by mamas-to-be if there are any particular yoga poses I suggest they do more than others. And while all prenatal yoga poses are amazingly beneficial – I do have some personal favourites. In this video, I share with you my 5 favourite prenatal yoga poses!
1. Cat-Cow Pose
2. Child’s Pose
3. Reclined Cobbler’s Pose
4. Deep Squat Pose
5. Legs Up the Wall Pose
These poses are so helpful at any stage in pregnancy. They keep the pelvis and hips aligned and increase mobility and strength. Give them a try today mama!
