Build Strength During Pregnancy With This 10-Minute Yoga Series

Yoga also helps expectant mothers connect with their breath, an important part of managing labor. Try this 10-minute yoga series, created and led by YAS yoga instructor Amanda Cosindas. It works the legs and opens the hips — just what pregnant women need!

WELL WELL WELL I just happen to be 6 months pregnant! What I have found is that every "body" and every pregnancy is different. What works for one person is not what will work for another. My personal experience is that I was very limited! Shocking to my psyche! I did and do not feel good doing much more beyond the simple external poses like triangle and ardha chandrasana and warrior two and then some stretches and a little inversion time. At times I enjoyed modified sun salutes. I have had pregnant students who practice up to weeks before birth who say that yoga saved them and it felt amazing. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY and what it needs. Don't do twists or jump around. Stop the folds when you can't fold. www.myyogaworks.com offers great pre natal classes that you can do in the privacy of your own home. They are also offering a 14 day free trial, so its definitely worth giving a shot!
