Kristin McGee’s Favorite Yoga Poses for Pregnancy
Yoga Move 5: Tree pose. Tree is one of those poses that you can do any time and anywhere when you feel you need some extra grounding and support. Tree is great for strengthening the entire body and for balance. It is also good for opening up the hips and helping with the focus one needs for labor.
To do: Start standing, place your right foot on your upper inner left thigh and turn the right knee out to the side. Bring your hands together in prayer at your chest. Pick a spot to gaze at and lift as tall as you can out of your supporting leg. Hold 5 to 8 breaths. Then switch sides. If your center of gravity has really shifted or you need extra support, hold onto a chair.
