Your placenta is already growing, providing life-giving sustenance to your baby. Your baby is doubling in size!
I am emotional
Baddha Konasana – Butterfly
Butterfly pose, or bound angle pose, helps open the hips and stretches the inner thighs. This posture can also help improve balance, core strength, and posture. Try placing blocks under the knees for extra support.
Recommended Yoga Class
This class is for 1st trimester to help you with your nausea. Not everyone experiences this pregnancy symptom, but it is very common. I have found no cures but some definite tools in my yoga toolbox that have helped me deal with this discomfort. Welcome to a nice easy flow where we focus on the breath, create space in our core area, massage the digestive system, and generally let our guts rest. Our entire body is working overtime right now, and that includes our digestive system! Let’s give her a break shall we?
*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!
