There are so many poses that I love to do during my prenatal practice. Here are just a few.
These can also be done even if you are not pregnant.
To deepen the stretch I remove my foot from under my pelvis and try to line it up with my knee, getting my shin to become parallel with the front of my mat.
This can be done from warrior II. When in warrior II take your gaze behind you to your back hand. Then slowly reach that back hand up as you reach your front hand down, moving your upper body towards your back hand. Your front shoulder may want to follow through and reach towards that back hand. Let that happen and create a small twist in your upper back. Repeat on the other side,
To get into this pose, simply ease down onto your forearms from downward dog. You can also widen your feet and bend your knees for more comfort.
