Urdhva Dhanurasana at 31 Weeks Pregnant-Video

4 Sep

I do not suggest for EVERY PREGNANT WOMAN to go out and do this backbend 😉 I do not recommend beginners to attempt to do this, and for most pregnant folk, my personal opinion is that if you wanna go for it, and have a pretty strong practice, you have a trusted, qualified instructor by your side, to facilitate the process 🙂

Having said that it is possible.

In my body, at this stage in my life, with this particular pregnancy, doing Urdhva Dhanurasana feels very good to me. I need these backbends! I sometimes do 3 or maybe only 1. I also make sure that I warm up and open up my body so that when I move into these type of stronger backbends, my body is ready 🙂 Also, I don’t practice deep backbends daily, sometimes once a week or even once every 2 weeks.

As I grow with my baby, listening to both my body and her is the key to the KNOWING of what I can and cannot do at any given time.

    Wow, Elsie. How incredibly touching and amazing. If you knew how this resonated in me, you’d probably cry as I am now.

    Ah, Elsie. More of longing and wishing. But also of feeling with you in that wonderful time where you’re discovering and re-discovering. So beautiful.
