yoga for mamas: cat/cow pose
CatMini-Cow Pose is a great pose to warm up and release tension in the spine, open the upper and low back and hips. It puts mamas in a hands and knees position to bring baby into optimal position. When linking movement with breath, it increases coordination and focus. In pregnancy, it’s important to be cautious about overstretching the abdominal muscles, as they are already separating as baby grows. Moving through a neutral spine, and then into a mini-cow pose, (while hugging baby gently into spine), gives a front body and low back stretch without overdoing it.
