Prenatal yoga modifications

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? Hope you’re enjoying the day so far!

I’m really excited about today’s post because it’s something that took me a while to learn, and is also a popular reader’s request. When I ran my blog survey, so many of you expressed interest in more prenatal and postnatal workout tips –I’m working hard on Post Baby Bod, which will be out this fall- and I can’t wait to share as much info as I can through research and my own experience. 

As you guys know, I recently completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training course. (Our graduation party was postponed until next weekend.) During our training, we focused quite a bit on special populations, including pregnancy. As you can imagine, I was the live demo for many of the poses. 😉 I was so excited to be able to use this information in my own practice, especially I was unsure of how to modify during my next pregnancy. It hindered me from practicing yoga as much as I would have liked. 

Here’s what I’ve learned about prenatal yoga and modifications for many of the common poses (+ a video, breaking it all down).
