20 Yoga moves for pregnant women

Upward Facing Dog Pose

Bend your arms and rest your palms on the floor on either side of your chest. Keep your legs flat on the floor and look ahead of you with your chin set on the mat. Inhale, shrug your shoulders and reach up to your ears. Squeeze your shoulder blades.

Exhale, pressing your hands down. Now, straighten your arms, bring your chest and legs off the floor and distribute your weight between your hands and feet. Slide your hands on the floor close to your feet and keep your hips high. Stretch your body on each side and elongate your neck. Pull your shoulder blades way back so that you can lift your chest forward. Hold this pose while you take two breaths, then release your body and come back to the floor.
