International Yoga Day 2024:  Simple yoga asana for expecting mothers

Here is a simple, yet amazing yoga pose to try out.

For Relieving Belly Weight: Wide-Knee Child’s Pose

Balasana or Child Pose

Kneel on the ground, butt on heels, top of feet against the floor, big toes touching, and knees wider than hip-width apart. Slowly bring chest to the mat, allowing your body to come between legs. Extend arms overhead, touching forehead to the mat. Or lay arms alongside the body with palms facing up if that feels more comfortable.
