Prenatal Yoga – 5 Poses for All Trimesters


Adriene: Hey everyone! Welcome to Yoga with
Adriene. I am Adriene and today we have a very special guest on the show, my friend
Hilah. Hilah: Hi. Adriene: Welcome Hilah, thanks for being here.
This is our first video in the prenatal series, and obviously, as you can see, Hilah is beautiful
and pregnant. So today we thought we would share with you five safe poses for every trimester.
So these are the things that you can do at home and that feel safe and supportive that
you can feel good in and repeat, so that you’re taking time to connect to your body and connect
to baby and most importantly, connect to your breath. So, if you’re ready, we’ll just jump
right in. Hilah: I’m ready. Adriene: So, Hilah and I are both in a nice
easy cross legged position. We can be cross legged or we can also go one foot in front
of the other which is Siddhasana and you have nice open hips already, so this might be comfortable
for you, but if this is not comfortable for you, we can come to that criss-cross applesauce,
something you’re going to be saying in no time. Trust me. I have 10 kids. Just kidding.
So yeah, so we’re in Siddhasana or Sukhasana, just a nice comfortable seated position, where
we will take the right hand to the belly. Hilah: Hi baby! Adriene: And the left hand to the heart. And
let’s just take a second, I know, and bump our mics simultaneously. And we’ll just take
a second to tune in here, so nothing fancy and I say this to Hilah but I also say this
to you, my friends, there’s no right or wrong here. For me, especially in prenatal yoga,
the goal is to connect to baby, nurture the body, nurture the baby, but also just support
your intuitive self, which sounds kind of cheesy but, it’s really so beautiful and so
important as you prepare for birth to connect to your intuition. The body knows what to
do, so it just kind of support that with a little breath and a little faith. So we’ll
just start by checking in with the breath. So we’ll loop the shoulders forward, up, and
back. And we’ll exhale maybe close the eyes or soften the gaze here. Soften the fingertips
as we connect right hand to belly, to baby. And Hilah was just telling me that she had
a prenatal massage yesterday and the lovely lady who was rubbing her said to move the
hand clockwise, right? Hilah: Clockwise. To help digestion. Am I
doing it clockwise? Adriene: So you get a little bonus there.
So we might incorporate that. Again, I feel like that’s about kind of about using your
intuition. So all of the information you learned yesterday coming into the practice. And then
we’ll find stillness there and then just take a second here to use the hands to kind of
scrape or graze the heart. Just kind of activating. Nice little boob rub there, too. And so the reason I do this is because we
kind of get into that yoga robot mode especially if you’ve been practicing yoga before where
we’re just like okay, right hand belly, left hand heart. We just kind of get into the sensation
of it all. And then we’ll close the eyes and just notice the breath. You just take a moment
here to honor the breath, each inhale of breath now for momma and baby, and each exhale an
invitation to create space, to release any stress, any tension, any potential worry or
fear of the unknown. We’ll soften the skin of the face, even relax the jaw here, just
find a moment of peace. And on your next inhale we’ll take a deeper breath, and on the exhale
blow it out through the lips softly. Let’s try that again, we inhale a deep breath
in, like we’re blowing out birthday cake candles here. And again we inhale. This time as you
blow out, slide the right, excuse me, the left hand all the way down to meet the right.
So now we have both hands here on the belly and we’ll just continue with that breath.
Inhaling in through the nose and exhaling out through the lips, the mouth. And we’ll
keep that going here at your own rhythm, Hilah, nice and easy. Inhaling in both for Hilah
and baby, exhaling to create space and cultivate peace. Inhaling lots of love in, and exhaling
lots of love out. On your next inhale gently slide both palms
now up towards the heart, we’ll bring the palms together here, just take a couple more
breaths, we might begin to deepen the breath, inhaling in through the nose, and long exhale
out through the lips or the mouth. So keep this going, Hilah, and I’ll just talk to you
guys for a second. So as we move into prenatal practice at whatever stage, I encourage you
to kind of take a break from those powerful feisty, fiery heating breaths, and move into
a more calming Pranayama practice. And Hilah and I are working on a series where we’ll
do more cooling, calming breaths, but as you work at home, I encourage you to just kind
of lay off those feisty breaths for a while. The body already has a lot of heat, depending
on what trimester you’re into, you’ll know what I’m talking about. So focusing on an
inhale through the nose and a nice soft exhale through the lips might be useful for you. Great. We’ll keep the heart lifted here, my
friend and draw the chin to the chest and just a little invitation for all of us to
just set an intention for the rest of our practice here together, may be taking a moment
to talk to babe or even focusing on one word to be the mantra for our practice. Shoulder
blades melt down towards the base of the spine, we go ahead and breathe into the back of the
neck here and once you have your intention, or your one word, again it can be quite simple,
it can be ease, it can be love, trust. Once you have your intention or your word, take
a deep breath in confirming it, and a long exhale out through the mouth confirming it
and we release. Great, we can bring the palms face up, take a deep breath in and bat the
eyelashes open and we’re in. Awesome. All right, so the first pose we are going
to learn today is a gentle chest opener, a really great if you’re experiencing heartburn,
also just nice for the chest, the neck, and shoulders, and then also a gentle twist to
kind of get fluids movement and the thing about the twist is that we want to be super
mindful but I think that this is one that we can just feel safe and grounded and comfortable
in, and also it’s just a nice neck and shoulder opener. So, Hilah is sitting in a nice, comfortable,
cross-legged position. She has nice open hips but we’re going to go ahead, and we’ve propped
her up on a blanket because I recommend that you do that. Most girls will have a bit tighter
hips and so lifting the pelvis up onto a couple of towels, or even a block or even a phonebook,
wait, nobody has phonebooks anymore, hopefully you don’t. Hilah: We still get them. Adriene: Why do they deliver them still? It’s
ridiculous. Anyway. Hilah: Let’s appreciate them for yoga. Adriene: Yes, if you still have those dang
phonebooks, get one, sit up on it. So we’re lifting the pelvis just to allow the weight
of the legs to release down and find a little more openness and spaciousness in the hips.
So we’ve lifted Hilah up on one blanket, you can lift up on a blanket or two or a phonebook.
Towels work too. All right, so we’re going to sit up nice and tall and lengthen up through
the crown of the head. Go ahead and take a second to loop the shoulders forward, up and
back, just a nice gentle rotation in the shoulders. Then we’ll take the left palm to the right
knee nice and easy and swim the right fingertips behind. So unlike Ribu [SP], where we’re really
moving behind that right shoulder like an active Hatha yoga class, we’re just going
to keep it nice and stacked. So head over heart, heart over pelvis, and now more than
ever in your yoga practice, it’s so important to deepen the breath, right? Because we’re
not just inhaling in for one now, we’re inhaling in connecting baby and mama, so we can close
the eyes here and breathe. Shoulder blades come in together and down, just a little energetic
drawing down and Hilah is nice and open here in the shoulders but maybe as we move on we
get a little more tight, so this is nice and easy. Then again, we’re not going to crank
here but we’ll just slowly draw a line with the nose, past the right shoulder. So rather
than pulling that right shoulder back, we’re just checking in the head and neck. That’s
pretty gentle here, my friends, you’re using the breath. Good. Beautiful, then we’ll drop the chin to the
chest and slowly release, come back to center, lift the gaze, look forward. Loop the shoulders
again, forward, up, and back and then we’ll take it towards me, right palm comes to the
left knee, left fingertips swim behind. Beautiful. And so, resist the urge, my friends, to really
crank into the twist, like we often do in class. So just nice and easy, keeping that
lift up through the chest, that lengthening through the back body, the shoulder blades,
beautiful. Gorgeous. And then again, rather than cranking towards the left, just consider
drawing a line with your nose past the left shoulder. As we do that we draw down through
the right shoulder which is looking beautiful here and breathe into the neck. Great, then drop the chin to the chest. Gorgeous.
We’ll release the chest back to center and just take it to the other side one more time.
So nice and easy, left palm to right knee, right fingertips swim behind. She’s nice and
stacked, head over heart, heart over pelvis, so even though we have a little bit of weight,
right in the forward, we want to keep head over heart, heart over pelvis. There’s a tendency
to lean back here, which could be a little bit uncomfortable for babe, so let’s keep
it nice and stacked. And then for this round, Hilah, we’re just going to loosen it up through
the neck. So we can get a little freaky here. So we can look past the right shoulder or
we can begin to draw a couple of circles with the nose and this will be, definitely, to
each zone, checking in with the neck, staying nice and loose. Beautiful. And then when you feel satisfied,
take a deep breath in and use an exhale to unravel it back to center. Loop the shoulders
in between, smile, lift the corners of the mouth slightly, and then we’ll take it to
the other side. Right palm to the left knee, left fingertips behind. And then same thing.
It’s all you momma, just checking in with the neck, finding what feels good, and as
we move along you might notice unnecessary tension in the neck, in the face, in the jaw,
so keep the jaw relaxed. I like to remind my mommas, my friends to soften the area between
the two eyebrows. Even the space between the upper lip and the nose, just kind of softening
and relaxing, yes, beautiful. So it seems so simple, but the more we begin
to expand our awareness now on softening and releasing, the more we’re going to be able
to do that when it’s time. You know what I’m talking about? When it’s time to be loose
and free and soft and release. Great. Right, now we’ll come back to center and one last
time take a nice loop of the shoulders as we breathe in, and we exhale, blow it out.
Gorgeous. All right, my friends. So the next thing we’re
going to learn is “Cat-Cow,” which we are probably most familiar with, so we’re going
to come to all fours, just in case you’re not, we’ll walk you through the alignment
of knees directly underneath the hips, and wrists directly underneath the shoulders.
Beautiful. And you can see Hilah, already, is practicing just awareness in the neck,
remembering that the neck is a beautiful extension of the spine, so she’s extending through the
crown, in fact you can release in the neck just a little bit to show them what that would
not look like if you just dropped, yeah. So she’s broadening through the back of the neck.
Quite beautiful. We’ll draw the shoulders away from the ears, just take a second here
to breathe. And then we release the floodgates open. We soften through the elbows, yeah,
and drop the belly, inhale, look forward, tailbone rises, and we’re not pushing, we’re
keeping it nice and soft here as we exhale, start at the tail and then travel up the spine.
So rather than drawing the navel up towards the spine, we’re just going to consider hollowing
through the upper back. So inhale in here, and exhale we hollow, rounding the spine.
Gorgeous. And then you can just move in your own time, Hilah, moving back and forth, nice
and easy. Beautiful. And then, actually, Hilah, you might even
widen your knees, just a hair, just give yourself a little more space here. Inhaling we drop,
the heart looks forward, opening the throat and exhale softly, rounding up. And she’s
taking her time, which is beautiful. We want to slow it down. In fact, in all these cases,
I think, in cat-cow, we can benefit from slowing it down a little bit but especially here.
Really connecting to the spinal flex here, keeping soft, of course, in the belly, let’s
do a couple more here. Once you get the hang of it, you start to feel good, you can close
your eyes, go inward. Visualize the spine from the crown of the head to the tip of the
tailbone. Awesome. Then we’ll bring the two big toes together, widen the knees a little
bit wider, and we’ll just do it a couple more times here. So this time, I just want to offer
you the option, my friends, my viewers, to move in circles. You can do like a drunk cat-cow
or you can begin to shake the hips a little left to right. You can begin to maybe move
the hips to the left as you look past your right shoulder gently and just kind of check
out the side body. Nice and easy, it’s all about creating space and maintaining a sense
of ease. We never want to push, in particular in this cat-cow or in this all fours pose.
We don’t want to push ever, right? Hilah: Right. Let’s not be pushy, guys. Adriene: Let’s not push till it’s time to
push, if you know what I’m talking about. I never knew I had prenatal jokes in me. Labor
jokes. Okay. So then we’ll come back to tabletop position, my friends. Take a deep breath in
through the nose, and a long exhale out through the mouth. Beautiful. Okay, so from all fours
you can send it back now to extended child’s pose, which is where we’re headed. So the
hipbones melt back onto the heels and so we can add a little space here, depending on
where you’re at. You might just stay on the fingertips, and Hilah is, you’re 26? Hilah: Yes. Adriene: Weeks? Hilah: Yes. Adriene: So Hilah’s 26 weeks, she can go ahead
and go into this with a little support. So I’m bringing a little gift here, of a block
obviously, and I just put a little lavender on a little tissue here, and if you like it
you can use it, and if you don’t you can move it forward. So we’re going to come to rest,
yeah, on the forehead. And this is a nice cooling, calming, place to put a little pressure
to the third eye, if you will. And then, how are your shoulders feeling here? Hilah: Shoulders are fine. Adriene: Shoulders are tight? Or feeling fine…
all right. If they’re feeling a little tight, my friends, you can soften through the elbows
here just bending a little bit, but it looks like she feels good, so whatever feels good
for you, Hilah. Great, then nice easy breaths here as we open the chest. Knees are nice
and wide. Good. Hilah: They have to be, because there’s a
big basketball in between them. Adriene: Yeah. It’s a reminder. And we’ll
just take a couple of breaths here, letting the weight of the heart melt down, the shoulders
soften and release. May I touch your back? Hilah: Hmm. Adriene: And then if you have a partner here
they might take a couple of hands to the lower back, just gently guiding. This is just a
soft, I’m not putting any pressure at all, just a little power-up touch on the lower
back to soften and release. Beautiful. And then we’ll just take 3-5 breaths here, my
friends, focusing on your mantra, inhaling nice, long, smooth, deep breaths for baby.
Beautiful. So we can take a second to rock on the forehead a little bit here, Hilah,
especially if you have that block there, it’s nice, just to massage the forehead. Then we’ll
activate through the fingertips and nice and easy take a deep breath in, exhale, blowing
it out through the mouth. Then we’ll use the palms to gently walk it up, nice and slow,
we can press in at the tops of the feet. And we slowly roll it back up. Beautiful. How
do you feel? Hilah: Good. Adriene: Excellent. Hilah: Yeah, that forehead pressure was really
nice. Adriene: Yeah, that’s a nice little pressure
point to just kind of calm the nervous system and cool out. And it’s amazing, I know it
just kind of seems silly but it’s amazing what just a little essential oil will do.
In the morning, after a nap, after like, an afternoon nap, then before bed, and we’ll
list some essential oil options for you guys on the website. Somewhere, somewhere. Sometime. Okeydoke. So for this next pose, we’re going
to come to standing. And we’re going to connect to a little strength, so strong for momma
and baby. So, perfect, Hilah’s already stepped just about hip-width apart, and then we’re
just going to inch a little bit wider, so a little bit wider than hip-width apart, so
finding a nice strong stance, strong and supportive. Then we’ll bring the hands to the belly. Take
a second to loop the shoulders forward, up and back. Reconnect to your breath, my friend,
my friends, mommas of the world. And then, on an exhale, we’ll slowly begin to bend the
knees. So it’s a nice easing into this Goddess pose here today, bending the knees, and the
knees are going to go out towards the toes, so the tailbone lengthens down, but rather
than drawing the navel to the spine like we know to do in Goddess pose, we keep it nice
and soft here. Moving the hands on the belly if that feels good, or just connecting to
the breath in stillness. So this will be a little bit different for
everyone, but we’re checking in with the legs here, lower body, so knees are bent, hands
are resting on belly. Great. Then we’ll inhale, rise up, lift up through the crown of the
head, and exhale, Goddess pose. Inhale, press on all four corners of the feet, gorgeous.
And exhale, thrust yourself, bending the knees deeply, Goddess pose. And inhale, we reach
up. And exhale, bending the knees, Goddess pose, and this time we stay here, connecting
to the breath. So we might just stay with hands on belly here, or we might experiment,
Hilah, with bringing the palms together at the heart, pressing the palms together, lifting
the sternum up to the thumbs. Gorgeous. So strong legs here, and this is a strengthening
pose, so nice cooling breaths as we inhale in through the nose, and out through the mouth.
Hang with me, doing great, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. We’ll inhale in and on your next
exhale, Hilah, just curve a line with your nose past that right shoulder again. Strong for momma, strong for baby here, inhale
in, exhale, come back to center. And we’ll curve a line with the nose, excuse me, to
the left side now. So we’re creating a little heat in the body, we’re pressing into all
four corners of the feet, we’re breathing nice, long, smooth deep breaths. Gorgeous,
my friend, let’s take one more breath in here. And on an exhale gently melt it back to center.
Great. Smile, take a deep breath in, and on an exhale, strong mommas, we press into the
feet, straighten the legs. Great. Here’s where we go, sister-woman-sister. We’re going to
open the palms here, keeping the pinkies and the thumbs together, nice little Mudra here.
And once again we reconnect to that word or that mantra, your intention, then we inhale
in here, my friend, and exhale, hands to baby. Awesome. Just take a second to notice how
you feel. All right. So for our final pose today, we’re
going to come back down to the mat. Take your time getting there, and as you can see, we’re
going to bring the soles of the feet together and the knees nice and wide. So again, I mentioned
before, Hilah has amazing beautiful hips, so we’re not going to prop her up on a blanket. Hilah: Thanks! Adriene: You don’t need that blanket. But
if you do, feel free to lift the hips up here or give yourself a little extra padding with
a towel, again just lifting the pelvis up just a little more can do it for some whilst
pregnant. Okay, so, we’re going to grab the ankles, Hilah, here today, loop the shoulders
forward, up, and back, and just sit up nice and tall. Permission to lean a little bit
forward, which you’re already doing a little bit naturally, listening to your body, and
again, connecting to that intuition. So you can inhale in, on an exhale, close the eyes,
we’re just going to take a couple breaths here. So to be perfectly honest, Hilah, your
hips are so flexible that here you might feel like you’re kind of not doing a lot, practically
nothing, right? Hilah: Yeah. It’s easy. Adriene: So, but for most moms or women, we
might just need to breathe here, letting gravity do the work, letting the weight of the thighbones
melt down on the exhale, letting the knees open wide and the heart stays open and lifted.
Beautiful. So then we’ll slowly transition to interlace the fingertips around the toes,
and we might have the tendency to collapse the chest, which Hilah is absolutely not doing,
this is gorgeous, so if you are tending to kind of round the shoulders forward, or collapsing
the chest, give yourself that sweet reminder again to just open the chest and heart, and
again, nice, long, smooth deep breaths for momma and baby. So you can stay here, or we
can guide the heart down a little bit, coming into a gentle forward fold. So the goal is
really not to bring the nose to the toes, but just to fold forward, nice and easy, finding
what feels good. You can relax the way to the head over if that feels good, Hilah. Yes,
gorgeous. And we’ll take 2-3 breaths here, nice and easy breezy. Beautiful. Hilah’s checking
in with the neck and the shoulders, soften through the jaw, maybe lick your lips here.
Take this time for you and babe. Then to gently come out of this, we’ll lengthen
the tailbone down, and slowly draw the chin into the chest to roll it up. Cool. So, from
this cobbler’s pose, we’re going to do a little two-for-one, my friends, see, you really get
your money’s worth. And we’re going to take it to a reclined Supta Baddha Konasana or
a reclined Baddha Konasana. So stay where you’re at now, Hilah, and we have some bolsters
here, but you can do this with body pillows, or you can practice this with just a couple
of normal pillows stacked up and the knees nice and wide. So, we’re going to use two
bolsters for Hilah here today. If you do have some blocks and bolsters, that’s nice, that’s
nice for you, especially when you’re moving with babe. This one has a tag that I want
to not use. Oh, this one has a tag too, okay. Well, so much for being OCD. You’re like,
“I’m waiting!” Okay, so I’m bringing the pillow or the bolster
in this case right up to the base of the spine. This should feel good. And then she’ll inhale
in, and exhale, slowly begin to melt back. So we just have a gentle incline here, I’ve
got you, and after all these looping of the shoulders, this time we’ll inhale, loop the
shoulders, and on the exhale we just let the weight of the arms go. So the arms can spill
left to right, and then, again, Hilah’s nice and open in the hips here, but sometimes it’s
nice to support the knees, particularly, so, most ladies’ knees are right here. Seriously,
including mine. So, we will go ahead and give you this little support for yummy’s sake,
but she’s nice and open. And so, don’t fret if you don’t have all these props and bells
and whistles, you can get them in time or you can just use towels. We can even pillow
the head here, my friends, by lifting the neck up a little. Is that all right, is that
too much? And then, letting the hands either come on to the belly or rest gently at your
sides, let’s put a box here for you, just to rest the hands. So the name of the game,
I like this one, it has my name on it… Hilah: So I can’t take it. Adriene: Yeah, don’t take this block. So the
name of the game here is support, right? We’re nurturing, creating space, and using the breath
to connect to the body, connect to baby, remembering that each breath is an opportunity, a pathway
to a more happy and healthy pregnancy. And of course, we know, the happier, the more
healthier the pregnancy, the happier and healthier the labor. So here we just rest and relax.
And Hilah, you decide what feels best, palms face down or palms open up. And we just take
3-5 breaths here, my friends, closing the eyes, softening the lips. If you’re at home,
you might take a second to make sure the temperature in the room feels good, maybe to put a little
music on. And use this supportive posture as an opportunity to really, again, connect
with the breath. Each inhale an opportunity, a pathway to a happier, healthier pregnancy.
Each exhale an opportunity to create space, to find a looseness. Marrying the strength
of our prenatal practice now with a little bit of grace and ease and relaxation. Okeydoke, my sweet friends, thank you for
sharing your time and your breath and your practice with me. Hilah, thank you so much
for being, actually you’re the first person to ever be on “Yoga with Adriene.” Hilah: Yes!!! Adriene: We always knew that it would happen,
but it finally happened, yay! And actually, first two! Hilah: Yay! Good job, guy. Adriene: Who would have thought? How do you
feel? Hilah: Good. Very relaxed, yeah. Adriene: Cool. So these are things you can
do at home. You have access to these bolsters and blankets and stuff, but if you don’t have
those things, don’t fret, it doesn’t mean you can’t do these postures. These are all
things that you can do without props and that you can do even without a yoga mat, just a
nice, comfortable, clean space for you and babe to connect with the breath. Hilah: I was thinking, yeah, like a firm couch
cushion would probably be a good bolster, too. Adriene: Oh, yeah! Yeah, actually, the couch
cushions on my couch that are like, too firm… Hilah: Right, they’re not very comfortable. Adriene: To sit on, but they’re… yeah. Hilah: They’d be great for a yoga pose! Adriene: Yeah, so that’s a great tip. Anything
else that you can share with our lovely mommies? Hilah: It was just interesting, I haven’t
actually done yoga since my first trimester because I didn’t know what to do and I couldn’t
do the stuff I used to do and so, yeah, having to make adjustments, for having like… Adriene: Yeah. Hilah: Your body parts are in different place
now. Adriene: Yeah, you mentioned the one on the
twist. Hilah: Like, yeah, I’m not used to my boobs
being in the way for that twist. Adriene: So it’s good, it’s like an exploration
in a whole new way, I can’t imagine. So beautiful. Well thank you again. If you enjoyed this,
I invite you to stay tuned. Hilah and I are going to continue to work on a prenatal series.
We’re going to have some lady talks and labor tips that will be for free. Hilah: That’s how girls do. Adriene: That’s from the Music Man. “Pick
a little, talk a little, pick a little, talk a little, pick, pick, pick.” Sorry. Hilah: It won’t be like that. Adriene: It won’t be like that, or will it?
Musical references do come out when you’re pregnant, I hear. Hilah: That’s true. Adriene: The hills are alive… Okay, so we’ll
save that for the lady talks, maybe. So join us for that, lady talks and labor tips. We
will also have another video here. It’s just a modified sun salutation for mommas. And
if you’re interested in more, Hilah and I are creating a series just for momma and baby
to prepare you for the healthiest and happiest pregnancy of your dreams. Hilah: And birth. Adriene: And birth. Yeah, there’s some good
labor and delivery stuff in there too. So, if you’re interested, check out more information
down below, and we’ll see you next time. Thank you so much, Hilah. Thank you, mommas. Namaste. Hilah: Namaste.

  2. Thank you so much for making these prenatal yoga videos. I can't wait to see the rest and to strengthen through my pregnancy with your help 🙂 

  3. Hi Adriene I was just wondering if you could make a video about how to clean your yoga mat, either daily or doing a deep clean. Also, how often should a deeper clean be done. Thanks so much!

  4. I'm sooooo happy to see this!!! I have been hoping a pregnancy series would come up soon! 😀 Let's just say I haven't been able to do all I used to comfortably… haha Thanks so much for taking time to create these wonderful videos! 

  5. Thank you so much for this! I'm going on vacation and will be missing my prenatal yoga classes and thought, "I wonder if Adriene did a prenatal video yet?". Lucky me 🙂

  6. over acting 

  7. This looks blissful! Thanks! Just found out I'm expecting number FIVE. But this will be my first pregnancy where yoga has become a big part of my life and I look forward to the benefits. I really need to stay strong and keep my energy level up- lots of little ones depending on me. Thanks again!

  8. Hi Adriene! I'm so excited about your prenatal yoga routines but I unfortunately just had my little one in June!  I am, however, searching for a yoga routine that I can do every day to help get my body back in shape! Have you considered a postnatal yoga routine? I'd sure love it because I'm enjoying your routines but I can't seem to settle on just one I can do every day.  You are honestly the best video teacher I have found thus far and I have watched many. 🙂 

  9. Hi Adriene, I really like your videos! Yoga during pregnancy was really great and for me it worked out so well! I wish I could take a class with you in real life. 😉

  10. I LOVE your yoga videos!!! I practice most days and have fallen in love with your videos! However, I am 15 weeks pregnant in my second pregnancy and struggle finding videos that challenge and are safe for pregnancy. Will you be doing more of these videos? Any suggestions of videos that you already have up? Thanks!

  11. Thank you, Adriene and Hilah! Please do more if you can!

  12. More please!! This is so very helpful as a beginner and first time mama. 4 months and proud!! Thank you!

  13. Hi! Is this safe for future mommies recommended to be on bed rest? Thanks!

  14. Hi Adrienne, love your videos! Can you do a postnatal video as well please, Thank you so much!

  15. Where can I find all of your prenatal yoga videos?

  16. I am so happy that I found this episode! I used to follow your classes Adriene and stop for w while cos I am pregnant now and though that you don't have pregnancy yoga, and I missed you! With huge morning happiness e and baby are preparing for this class:)

  17. So sweet and comforting to see you love on her with a gentle caress here and there. You'd make a wonderful yoga teacher.

  18. Please bring it back to your site!

  19. Hi- I am a little confused about where to find the prenatal series. Is it just this video, or is there more to it?

  20. I am in the middle of my 30 day yoga practice with yoga with adriene when I found out that I'm pregnant. now I'm so happy to know that adriene has an episode for pregnant women. I stopped my 30 day yoga practice for now. 😀

  21. how do you not get sleepy while doing this??

  22. i like the poses , but the background music temple is a bit too fast for me…. 🙁

  23. I know I'm a bit late, but any chance I can convince you to make a postpartum yoga video within the next couple of weeks??? I'm due November 8th and my body is going to need some healthful TLC after this little one arrives! THANKS!!!!

  24. Pregnant women make me so horny… I don't understand why.

  25. i'll give it a try. i have never done yoga

  26. Thank you thank you thank youuuu! I've been searching for some kind of activity that wouldn't be a problem for me since I feel bad during pregnancy and can't go swimming or walk a lot and this is perfect!

  27. My daughter and I loved this video while we were preparing for her to be born. Now she's three months, healthy and happy. She gets to watch me while I do your 30 Day Yoga Challenge. Thank you!

  28. Hi Adrienne, do you have postnatal videos?

  29. I'd like to get your opinion on this. I just found out I'm pregnant (I mean JUST found out) Could I continue with my regular yoga practice, or should I go ahead and switch over to prenatal?

  30. I like it.

  31. are there more videos in this series? I'm looking for more prenatal yoga with adriene! 🙂

  32. Thanks again Adriene!!! Your the BEST!!

  33. do you want children adriene? love u!

  34. thanks adriene..amazing yoga..luv it

  35. Hi lovely Adriene! I do your different yoga sequences like four times a week and is now pregnant is devastated that I might not be able to continue with this smorgasbord of fun. Can you recommend any other of your videos that might be suitable to do (I'm not even fat yet, but don't wanna do anything stupid) or some that is definitely not suitable to do? I know that there are millions of pregnant yoga videos on youtube, but I only like your show! 🙂

  36. Sorry for writing this, but you´re talking and talking and talking…it´s hard to calm down and relax … 🙁 Sometimes less is definitely more 🙂

  37. I am so SO glad you dd a prenatal yoga Adriene. I was doing your yoga videos before I found out I was pregnant. I love your style. You always manage to make me laugh and feel at ease. I was worried about finding a new routine due to my pregnancy, and in fact was just telling my husband last night that I wished I could find a workout like yours because I adore your personality.
    This makes me so happy. <3 Thanks for enlisting your friend to help you. I'm such a fan.

  38. Too long for just 5 simple poses, to much blah blah

  39. do you reccomend any prenatal yoga channels?

  40. I thought I'd do yoga since I heard it's good. This video reminded me why I didn't take it up pre-pregnancy. It didn't calm me, too much chit chat got a bit annoying when you're waiting for the next step. I won't give up, I'm sure there's a better video out there hopefully.

  41. I wish I had the patience to do yoga!!!!!!!!

  42. currently pregnant first trimester last baby. I've had c sections with all and will with this one. does it matter or no? will this help with all the anxiety I have?

  43. I really enjoy your videos Adrianne but felt this one had much chatting not enough yoga

  44. So glad to see prenatal yoga with Adrienne. Would LOVE some more videos, or maybe just during a regular video, make a comment on how to adapt a pose if pregnant (eg. twist the opposite way, spread the feet a little more, etc.) In my experience, many poses require no modification and the others are simple to adapt usually…

  45. I feel the "last" pose with the hands on the ankles and around the feet was kinda terrible towards those of us with short arms and big boobs, scolding for dipping in our shoulders isn't fair… I can't sit up straight no matter how hard I try, I've never been able to. I'm 25 weeks and have been looking for some work outs to help my body stretch out more, but unfortunately I'm going to have to take this off my list because of the extra troubles.

  46. Loved this video so much! Thank you, so much!

  47. Hi Adriene! Do you have any plans to make another prenatal video that is a bit more active and core-strengthening? I've been searching for others, but I can't find anyone who is as fantastic as you!

  48. We're not disabled we're pregnant! Weak sauce, but I cheated and went ahead and counted this for my Friday yoga.
    I agree Hila is stunning and an inspiration for a girl baby name!

  49. Please do some more prenatal videos! I can't find many

  50. I'm so glad I found a pregnant yoga practice video I enjoy! Please make more. 🙂

  51. Would love to see some more prenatal videos! I'm currently 15 weeks and would love to see some more prenatal flows like in the prenatal package so I can switch them up. I tried doing some prenatal videos with other instructors here on youtube, not the same as with you adriene!

  52. I'm so happy Adriene .. that you made prenatal video. I used to follow you with 30 days yoga challenge but then life and work took priority. I always loved yoga and was checking out if any prenatal yoga practice is there for soft moves and connecting with self. When I saw your video.. it was a relief. Love your practice. Thanks

  53. Please do more prenatals, Adriene! I've tried others but they're just not you. (Was so excited when you mentioned in one of your more recent videos — maybe during Revolution? — that you were going to do some kid yoga videos, too. Perfect timing. I'm due in July and I'll want my kid learning from the best.) Been following you for years — THANK YOU!

  54. I'll be 30 on the 29th and I used to practice yoga when I was 11-13, but I stopped because of life events that sent me into a depression and I've also developed anxiety. I've been trying to develop a yoga routine (I have three children and we live with my fiancé…who can be another child) to help with my anxiety but foe some reason this upload is raising my anxiety and I feel a panic attack coming. This is so frustrating.

  55. It would be amazing if you made a video of a mommy & baby yoga session! I would use it every day.

  56. Hi Adriene and Hilah! Loved this. I clicked the link to to your website for more prenatal yoga and I didn't get anything besides comments? How do I get more prenatal yoga from you guys? Thank you so much!

  57. Got any more of these videos?? I feel like I'm cheating on you looking at another person doing yoga 😂

  58. please do more prenatal yoga videos

  59. dude my unborn baby could've taught this shit. useless

  60. Please can you do a video for poses that will help boost fertility! That would be awesome! ❤️

  61. Absolutely love this yoga session! Really liked how it focused on relaxation and bonding with baby 🙂

  62. Please do some more prenatal yoga videos!! You are my favorite!

  63. I decided I would do every video by YogawithAdriene. As a 28 year old male I don't think I will ever get pregnant, but these poses are good to know just in case.

  64. Hey Name-partner in crime! I'm yoga with Adriënne in Holland and also a certified (prenatale) yoga teacher. If you like I could share some tips for prenatale yoga. Love your vids! Keep up the good work of sharing Inner peace and Happiness. Namasté, Adriënne

  65. Where are the other prenatal videos you talked about in your announcement video?

  66. Please do more pregnancy videos

  67. 28 weeks pregnant right now. 😃😃

  68. Hi Adriene! I have been watching you for years, and love you btw…. But I just found out I'm pregnant and I'm wondering when I should transition from "normal" yoga into exclusively "prenatal" yoga. I'm only like 4 weeks along.

  69. My right arm went numb by 3:17 Ahh, the joys of pregnancy.

  70. Hi Adrienne! I’ve done 3 of your 30 day yoga challenges and i recently found out i am pregnant. I found one prenatal yoga episode on your channel, it would be amazing if you could upload more. I just love doing yoga with you an i would love to continue doing it with you through my pregnancy. Thanks so much for all you do for all of us aspiring yogis! You’re truly amazing

  71. Adriene , is it possible to just buy your prenatal yoga ????

  72. Is it safety for doing this yoga when 4weeks pregnant?

  73. Please do more prenatal yoga videos!!! There aren't any one's that are as calming, but funny, as your videos are!!!!!

  74. Hi Adrienne. I love your videos…. Could you please do one for Fertility Yoga . Thanks !

  75. Would love you to do more videos like this!!

  76. Adrienne – I am looking. Do you have any videos for after menstruation to clear things out and prepare for ovulation/increase fertility?

  77. Hi Adrian! Do you have plans to do a 30/31 day prenatal yoga camp? I think that would be amazing! 😊

  78. I don't receive phone books, but my grandparents still do lol. The only free service for info that exists in today's age. Yelp was almost on the telephone book hype

  79. Please make more prenatal yoga videos Adriene!!!

  80. I LOVE all the Yoga with Adriene challenges & would be SOOOO PUMPED if she did a prenatal yoga series!!!

  81. I am having so many aches and pains and it's only my first trimester!! My hips and back are aching all the time. Im hoping some gentle yoga will help.

  82. For anyone trying to find the prenatal series you can download it here for $27.99 https://fwfg.com/collections/online-yoga-classes/products/prenatal or subscribe to her Find What Feels Good membership for $9.99 a month here https://yogawithadriene.vhx.tv/

  83. Hey preggos. Did anyone catch the kinky reaction to the boob rub at 2:55?

  84. Adriene, we love you! We have completed a few of your 30-day series together as a couple and now that we're expecting (our first!) we'd love to see more prenatal yoga videos from you. Maybe even a 30-day prenatal yoga series??! Many thanks for the humor and down to earth instruction in all of your yoga videos. <3

  85. Please can you release a fertility yoga video, I'm having to go to other youtube yoga teachers for this which is so not cool, yours are the best.

  86. You should do more of these. I have a friend who recently found out she is expecting and thought what an idea to do for those expecting September babies.

  87. This is so beautiful Adriene, you are such a fantastic and giving teacher.

  88. This was so helpful. Thank you so much!! I’m 38 weeks and feeling ready for birth, so the hip opening exercises are really helpful

  89. Hi Adriene, can you recommend any other pregnancy safe yoga videos or chanels?

  90. We need more prenatal Yoga videos! 🙂

  91. Thank you! I am 20 weeks and haven't done yoga since the first few weeks…this was a lovely gentle re-introduction x

  92. could you make one without the background music?

  93. Haha, when she mentioned her boobs being in the way for the twist, I was like YEEESSS!! That's exactly what I was thinking during that pose! Someone to relate to, finally ♡

  94. Using my boyfriend's phone is it safe to do forward facing dog if your only a couple weeks

  95. Oh Adriene, it's always such a pleasure to hear you, your funny jokes etc. This video was so sweet to see the sisterly love you gave to mommy. Thank you, I feel some of the love crossing through time and space and right to my own livingroom.

  96. Can you post more yoga video after delivery? Lot of love from Cambodia.

  97. Hi .. Im 4week pregnant.. Can i do this yoga?

  99. Hi Adriene, I have already done C-section 5years ago , now I m pregnant second one 12weeks , and I have high BP 140/90,, can I do this yoga… It will be useful for me..

  100. Be careful doing yoga at first trimester….maybe it's safe at 3rd trimester
