Yoga Pose: Child’s Pose Over a Ball

Home » Uncategorized » Yoga Pose: Child’s Pose Over a Ball

This is a great pose to use all the way through your pregnancy, but it’s especially useful during the last six weeks. Stretch out with Part 1, then relax with Part 2.

Part 1

  • Sitting in Child’s Pose, place your palms on top of the ball
  • Roll it forward until you can rest your forehead on the ball
  • Breathe into the stretch through your arms, shoulders and spine as your pelvis widens
  • Stay for a few rounds of the breath and come up slowly

Part 2

  • Relax forward over the ball in Child’s Pose – knees wide apart and toes together
  • Use a pillow on the ball if you need to
  • Relax your arms, breathe and enjoy
