Goddess Pose for Pregnant women
You can take the arms out to the side of the body as shown and allow the energy to travel through out the entire body.
The benefits of this pose apply to all—but it's an especially great move for pregnant women.
"It's effective because it opens the hips and strengthens the inner and outer legs. It also helps with stability as a woman's sense of 'center' changes due to the movement and opening up of the body perparing for childbirth.
The pose engages several different muscle groups. "It works the quadriceps, inner thighs, calves as well as your core, arms and balance.
Goddess pose has some benefits that sound a bit strange but are incredibly important for pregnant women. "It not only creates strength and builds heat but draws on the engagement of your pelvic floor,". "Strengthening the pelvic floor is important so that the muscles at the bottom of your bladder can engage to keep urine from leaking when you cough or sneeze. A strong pelvic floor will keep the vaginal wall in good shape, which helps postpartum and as our hormones shift as we move toward menopause."
The role of Goddess Pose is vast.
Done properly and consistently, the most noticeable benefits include:
- Opens the hips, legs, and chest
- Strengthens the legs, calves, abs, and knees
- Stimulates the uro-genital system and pelvic floor
- Strengthens and stretches the shoulder joint
Contraindications: Recent or chronic injury to the legs, hips or shoulders.
