I’ve put together some pregnancy yoga videos for the wonderful mamas-to-be in my life. These are a series of stabilising and mobilising movements and poses that are safe to do during pregnancy. View “Nest and Rest” on Youtube here.
Go easy, go slow, and just do what is right for you at whatever stage of pregnancy you’re at. If you’re not pregnant, I’m sure you’ll still enjoy these movements. They can help to assist with any lower back pain or instability also around the pelvis. Bring awareness to the core structure of your body, postural alignment, and move with stability and control.
You could choose to do this pregnancy yoga practice without any props. Just make sure you’ve got a little bit of space around you. If you do want to use props, you could use a chair, a yoga mat, a small cushion, a big cushion or a stack of cushions, and/or a blanket. Make sure you’re wearing close that are comfortable. I’m sure if you’re pregnant you’re already wearing loose-fitting clothing that you can easily move in.
Before you begin
For those who are new to yoga, most of these movements will be safe for you to do but if there is anything that feels unfamiliar, very new to your body, please do modify as needed and truly listen to your body. If anything doesn’t feel good to you there is no need to push through it.
