Exercises Which are Practiced in our Yoga Classes for Pregnant Women
At Zaazen there are a number of yoga exercises which are practiced in yoga classes for pregnant women and have amazing benefits for their changing bodies. A common exercise or asana known to have many benefits is the butterfly pose. This pose strengthens the inner thighs and the pelvic region and involves the person sitting with their legs folded with their feet forming a ‘namaste’ pose. Then they are supposed to place their hands on their knees or thighs and move their thighs up and down until they feel comfortable.
Other poses are like yastikasana or the stick pose, parvatasana or the mountain pose, bhadrasana or the butterfly pose etc. It is important to note, however that all these exercises cannot be done in every trimester and one should consult their yoga teacher on what’s safe to practice in which stage of pregnancy.
