Prenatal Yoga: Childs Pose

Balasana, or childs pose, is very restful and can help alleviate nausea from morning sickness, as well as any tension or stress that you're feeling. Leggings by Ingrid & Isabel Tank by Destination Maternity


So now we're gonna work on another pose for the first trimester to help you if you're feeling nauseous or if you have any fatigue. So from a cross-legged seat, come on to your hands and your knees. So widen your knee so that you have enough room for your belly and bring your big toes to touch behind you. Child's pose or Balasana as it's called. Walk your arms forward and as you exhale, bring your hips back towards your heels. Bring your forehead to the floor, and if it doesn't reach you can take a pillow or a blanket to support your head. And with each exhale, let your head get a little heavier, spend a few breaths here, lengthening your inhales and your exhales. And also, this is a quite time for you to begin to bond with your baby. One more breath. Walk your hands in, and then come up to sit in a cross-legged seat, and then bring your palms to your thighs. Good job.
