Yoga Posture of the Month: Child’s Pose Shoulder Release

Home » pregnancy yoga » Yoga Posture of the Month: Child’s Pose Shoulder Release

Our second yoga pose of the month is Child’s Pose Shoulder Release. Each of the poses this month are postures you can do with a partner and this one also uses a ball.

Start by sitting upright in Child’s Pose.

Whilst your partner holds firmly hold down your pelvis, place your palms on top of the ball.

Roll it forward, relax down and breathe into the shoulders. As you slowly come back up, your partner should maintain their hold on your pelvis.

Now swap with your partner.

Janet gets the women in her pregnancy yoga classes to practice Child’s Pose Shoulder Release with a partner regularly.  It’s also a great posture to practice at home with your birth partner to help you bond and prepare you both to both stay calm and relaxed during labour.

Look out for April’s last Yoga Posture of the Month, next week!
