How can I modify my yoga poses during pregnancy?

Modify Your Moves

As you get bigger, use more props such as blocks and straps to help you work through poses, and use a wall or a chair to help you keep your balance when you're doing balancing poses such as tree pose or triangle pose.

Also, drink water during a class or at-home practice whenever you want to. This tip is contrary to the standard advice against drinking water during a yoga class so as not to cool down the warmth that you build in the body during the course of the class. When doing yoga during pregnancy, as with any other exercise during pregnancy, be mindful of your body temperature and avoid becoming overheated by slowing down and staying hydrated.
