Healthy Heart :)

This pose is great for working the core and hips. I had a PE assignment to find Yoga positions and I chose this one. My teacher actually thought it was phenomenal! awesome :D

This position places too much pressure on the child, there is also seperation of the pubic bone, this is a possible risk of SPD.Avoid any position that places pressure on the unborn child
Keep well.


why is it not indicated during pregnancy?

I did this pose in a class and everyone was giggling about the name. It was a lot of fun and melted away my stress.
