Lower Back Relief

At some point during pregnancy, your lower back will hurt.  This could be a passing twinge, a reliably dull ache, or something that leaves you staring at pain meds other than tylenol with great longing.  As relaxin and the weight of your uterus join forces to wreak havoc on create space in your pelvis, your sacrum and sacroiliac joints are also affected.  We often lose strength in our core muscles just when we need that strength to help counter the effects of the increased weight of our body and instability of our joints.

Enter yoga.

The sequence below will not be the cure for all that ails your aching back, but it is 8 minutes and 23 seconds of mental and physical space for yourself that may also provide a bit of relief for the twinge/dull ache/etc. that you’re experiencing.
