In this one-hour flow, we focus on breath, strengthening the back body, opening the chest, and finding stability in the hips. Please be sure to consult your doctor before you start any exercise regimen (and this goes for everyone, not just pre- and post-natal women!) to make sure this type of exercise is right for you. And as always, listen to your body, pay attention to your breath.
Pro tip: I recommend ALL the props available to you! Pillows, blankets, a bolster, a yoga block – anything and everything to assist making every shape as comfortable and accessible as possible.
In addition to my yoga and training certifications, I trained with Jacquelyn Brennan and Sarah Duvall to learn more about how fitness programming and yoga can benefit you in the pre and post-natal journey. If you are interested in learning more yourself (whether you teach or are a fitness enthusiast) I recommend reaching out to a perinatal corrective exercise specialist like Jacquelyn.
