08 Mar Workshop Series: Prenatal Yoga and You
It is no secret that staying active while pregnant is good for you and your growing body. As we move forward throughout our pregnancy, new aches and pains arise and finding comfort can become more challenging. As a fellow yogi myself, I find it important to move the muscles of the body, not only for the physical workout, but for the flexibility of joints as well. Prenatal yoga is no different. In this practice, you learn different postures that will assists with any back pain, carpal tunnel, hip opening, and even baby’s positioning. The better you can get your body moving while pregnant, the better equipped your body will be when labor begins.
4 Prenatal Yoga Poses to Relieve Back Pain
- Goddess Pose: opens hip and groin area, along with strengthening the legs and back muscles.
- Triangle Pose: stretches the lower back and legs while toning down the pelvic floor muscles.
- Wide Squat: allows you to open your hips and find balance at the same time.
- Child’s Pose: provides a stretch of the shoulders and back.
Please keep in mind all exercise must be cleared by a medical professional prior to commencing a workout plan.
