Standing forward fold – Uttanasana
This is the 3rd posture in a sun salutation. Forward folds open the back side of the body, assist in back pain, and relax the head, neck, and shoulders. Practice with or without blocks for support.
Recommended Yoga Class
If you are taking this class into your second trimester – congratulations! You made it! The first trimester can be full of so much exhaustion, nausea, and not to mention emotional and hormonal upheaval! Once I hit my second trimester, I’ll be honest, I did not get much energy back. But my spirit was fired up to get into action! I started eating healthier again (the first trimester had me eating a lot of toast, apples, and peanut butter!), practicing more yoga, walking, and just getting back to life. Allow this class to stimulate your core, fire up your digestive system, and juice up your solar plexus, your action center. You have plenty of time to get great eating habits and yoga practice habits going. We’ve got this!!
*I am constantly updating recommended classes as I add more yoga classes to my YouTube library! Check back often for updates!
**Every body, woman, practice, and pregnancy is different. If the suggested class for this week does not suit you this week for any reason, please feel free to look for a different one on my YouTube channel. Trust your body and listen to your birth team!
How much power does your pregnancy have over your emotional well-being? While hormones can be difficult to manage, how can you let go and allow yourself to just feel how you are feeling?
