Prenatal Yoga for Back Pain and Abdominal Strength

The video above is only a preview. To watch this and other full length classes, sign up for one of our plans.


Yoga Class Description

This prenatal yoga class will focus on asanas to help alleviate the aches and pains in the back of the body caused by carrying the growing weight of breasts and a baby. We will also focus on doing safe abdominal exercises to help restore support to the vulnerable lumbar spine. We will move the spine in simple repetitive motions to stretch the sides of the waist, the front and back of the body and create gentle rotations of the spine. We will also carve out time and space to become quiet and reflective to connect to the energy of our growing babies and to connect to the experience of pregnancy. Have two blocks, a bolster and blanket available. (82 mins.)

Great class, quite long, but good to do if time and energy! Sometimes difficult to see poses well as they all wear black and have black yoga mats.
