Week 32

For the past two years I have been practicing yoga as part of my weekly routine. I love how it challenges your concentration, focus, breathing, balance, strength, and most of all, it requires us to move through combined ranges of movement. Too often we stretch and mobilise in one single plane of movement or only move one part of the body. Yoga postures really encourage full body movements and there are a few that I particularly love to use during pregnancy. One thing to note about yoga poses is that because they involve full body movements, they can be produce a stronger stretching feeling. If you feel your body is not comfortable in these postures then please keep with the stretches we've been doing in previous weeks. The 4 movements I want to talk about this week are reverse warrior, side angle pose, downward facing dog, and dolphin pose.
