PreNatal Yoga Sequence
here is a prenatal sequence I designed for a friend/student who is 5 weeks pregnant. Download and enjoy and I welcome feedback anytime!
I’m also working on a sequence for another friend who is suffering from a herniated neck disc. I’m doing a lot of research and finding that one particularly challenging. The other two sequences I am working on: “computer yoga” when you’re sitting at your desk and “chair yoga” for seniors. I’ll post more sequences up as a complete them!
BTW, I built this sequence using the app on the Yoga Journal website. it’s handy but a little awkward to use in some ways, and has a limited database of poses from which to chose.
Here is a cool gallery of poses being done at different stages of pregnancy
. Overal, it’s a nice set of poses, but I have to say that I personally find toe stand pose really challenging and hard on the knee ligaments. Remember that just because you see someone else doing a pose, it doesn’t mean you have to or SHOULD be doing that pose as well. I also have read that doing twists in the first trimester are not wise. Choose wisely!
