yoga for mamas: supported side-lying corpse pose
Supported Side-lying Corpse Pose (Savasana)
This is arguably every pregnant mama’s favorite pose! It’s a perfect way to rest after a strength-building class and a good way to sleep at night, too. A bolster is placed under the knees with the bottom leg extended, which allows a mama to roll her top hip forward, placing less pressure on the bottom hip. This also rotates the belly slightly, with the belly button aiming down towards the floor, which again, puts the baby into a more optimal fetal position. Support under the arms and head, with blankets, pillows, or a block is key for allowing complete surrender and rest.
