Do you or someone you know have a baby on the way? If so, check out these tips about Prenatal yoga!
First Trimester - Refrain from raising the arms overhead as it compresses the uterus. No Warrior I's until Second Trimester. This is a common culprit for miscarriages.
Lay on Side - When you lie belly-up the weight of your growing belly can compress the vena cava, a major blood vessel. This can limit blood supply to both mama and baby!
