Pregnancy Yoga Posture of the Month: Upper Back and Shoulder Release Against A Wall

Home » pregnancy yoga » Pregnancy Yoga Posture of the Month: Upper Back and Shoulder Release Against A Wall

Our third pregnancy yoga pose of the month is Upper Back and Shoulder Release Against A Wall. Each of the poses this month are postures you can do with a partner which helps increase your stretch and helps you bond.

Start by facing a wall, about your arm length away from it and feet parallel. Your partner can stand behind you and firmly hold your hips above your feet.

Come forward and place your hands onto the wall a little wider than your shoulders, and as high as comfortable.

Now relax and drop into it until you feel a stretch in the upper back and shoulders. Breathe and release and bend your knees to come up.

This is a great alternative to Head Down Dog in late pregnancy and Janet gets the women in her pregnancy yoga classes to practice it regularly.  It’s also a great posture to practice at home with your birth partner.
