How to Do Prenatal Yoga Downward Dog | Pregnancy Workout


Now we’re going to show you how to do downward
facing dog. Downward dog is wonderful for strengthening
your arms, stretching our your lower back which may be getting tight and stretching
out the backs of your legs. Vickie’s going to come onto her hands and
knees. Spread the fingers wide, press through the
fingertips. Tuck your toes and when you’re ready, lift
your hips up. Very nice. She’s going to press through her fingertips
to draw her chest towards her thighs. And then draw the thighs back. As you do so, let the heels relax towards
the floor. Let your head relax. If you’re calves are feeling really tight,
you can press one heel down and then the other, letting the opposite knee bend. This is going to be wonderful when your calves
get tight later on in pregnancy. And when you’re done with your downward dog,
you can let your knees come down and rest in child’s pose. Downward dog is wonderful whenever the back
of the body’s feeling tight or if you want to strengthen your arms so you have really
pretty shoulders when you’re pregnant.
