25 min. Christian Prenatal Yoga for Low Back Pain

Welcome to this 25 minute Christian Prenatal Flow for Low Back Pain!

This short practice targets pernicious low back pain that can crop up during pregnancy. We do lots of forward folds, hip circles, and deep leg stretches to help release tension. 

We use two blocks throughout the practice to help make movements more accessible so make sure to grab yours or a couple books/boxes if you don't have any.

This practice may especially come in handy during the final few weeks of your pregnancy  when babies position themselves for delivery (preferably head down!). Your baby's head is the heaviest part of its body, so gravity is working in your favor here as we do lots of "butt-up, belly-down" movements. 

**If you know your baby is breech, please avoid the squatting poses. Instead, use this time to take some wide legged forward folds, arms stretched out in front of you and your hands on the blocks. This mini-inversion will keep encouraging your baby to turn.

Psalm 112:7 (NIV)

They will have no fear of bad news;
    their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord.

Psalm 112:7 (TPT)

They will not live in fear or dread of what may come,
    for their hearts are firm, ever secure in their faith.
