We have a great new yoga pose for you this month: the famous Dog pose, specially adapted for pregnancy!
“People often ask me whether this yoga sequence is good to do in pregnancy as it is an inverted position. The answer is yes IF you feel like it and ONLY when you are less than 30weeks pregnant.*
“After 30 weeks, the priority is for the baby’s head to go in the opposite direction – down into the pelvis. The only exception is if your baby is breech, in which case this position may encourage baby to turn and not to get stuck into the pelvis breech first!”
“View it as a moving sequence (more like a playful puppy than a dog) and don’t hold it for a long time. If you are more than 30 weeks don’t despair – I am going to send you a standing alternative next, which you can do right up until the birth.”
Regular yoga during your pregnancy is the cornerstone of Active Birth.
