Prenatal Yoga Poses : Mountain Squat Pose for Prenatal Yoga


The mountain squat breath flow is a nice way
to think about the breath flow of the spine. We’re going to have Emily here showing it.
I’m going to have you stand sideways so they can see your nice straight spine. Again, your
feet are going to be about hip width apart, toes slightly turned in, strong wonderful
thighs, and slightly tuck that tailbone letting the shoulders relax back down away from the
ear. Literally, someone is looking at you from your side, they’ll see you stack literally
one part of the body onto the next. Now, bring in your hands. We are going to working with
the breath here, so really think about your breath. Take a nice deep inhale. As you exhale,
start to slowly bend the knee shooting the arms straight forward. Notice how her shoulders
are staying over the hips. Beautiful. Inhale standing up nice and tall, bringing the hands
to heart center. Exhale and straighten out those arms, bending the knees, keep that spine
nice and straight, inhaling nice and tall. One more time. Exhale, release that breath.
Shoot the arms out. Perfect. Inhaling all the way up.
