Tips to Keep Your Prenatal Yoga Practice Safe and Effective:

With Prenatal Yoga, it’s encouraged that you use as many yoga props as possible. Yoga should be relaxing, especially when you’re pregnant. For this video, we recommend a blanket, yoga block, and bolster. If you don’t have a block or bolster handy, you can substitute a book or water bottle for the block and a pillow for the bolster.

As a general rule when you’re pregnant, it’s best to avoid the following things in your yoga practice:

  • Yoga poses on your stomach
  • Supine poses (flat on your back)
  • Deep backbend poses
  • Poses or movements that contract the abdomen
  • Holding poses for longer than 5-10 breaths
  • Deep twists that compress the abdominal area
  • Deep forward bends or hip openers
  • Advanced Pranayama (or deep breathing exercises)
