Are you in your third trimester and looking to release tension in your upper body and work on your pelvic floor? Then this Mixed movement Yin flow is for you.
Starting with deep belly breathing to enhance circulation and give your baby the oxygen it needs, followed by Kegel (pelvic floor) exercises suited for pregnant women. This practice opens up the chest, arms and side body, enhances blood circulation, creates more space for your baby and circulates more oxygen throughout the body. You will move the spine, hips and legs to release, tone and strengthen these areas to be able to carry the extra weight, as well as releasing tension in the buttocks and legs; areas that tend to tighten up during the day.
Make sure you stay attuned with how you feel during this class. If you experience pain, dizziness or nausea, take a moment to rest and breathe. If you practice the Kegel exercises and would like to do more, then please do so. Different options for the poses are given, so you can adapt them to your needs. This is a great session to strengthen your pelvic floor, enhance your breathing and connect with and feel your baby, whilst at the same time taking care of yourself. Props: bolster, pillow, blanket and a belt.
