Prenatal Yoga – Volume I

Posted in How-To,Stability Ball / Yoga Ball,Yoga by Harmony on June 29, 2010

Over the next several weeks we are going to offer several videos on Prenatal Yoga. This is the first of four videos from Sara Varona. In these videos, Sara recommends having a Yoga Ball, 1 or 2 Yoga Bolsters, and a small pillow to rest your head in Savasana.

For this first video, all you’ll need is the Yoga Ball. Yoga Ball manufacturers provide sizing charts to allow you to choose the right size based on your height. You’ll find this information on each of our product pages.  Primarily you will want a ball that will allow you to sit with your knees bent at a 90-degree angle.

Yoga Balls are also called Stability Balls, among many other terms, and can be used in many exercises – not just for these prenatal yoga poses. These poses can also be performed by anyone just to add some variety to your practice.

Before starting this video, I’d recommend turning up the volume on both your computer and the video itself, and find a nice quiet room.  The one drawback to this series was the volume being slightly too low.

This video is just the first 10-minutes of her entire practice – so don’t leave yourself unbalanced, be sure to do the Warrior II and Side Angle on your opposite side, too! And come back next Tuesday for more of Sara’s Prenatal practice.
