Simple yoga poses that work as a natural remedy to fight pain in your pubic area — one of the most common pregnancy symptoms.
Find a space that is big enough for you to sit on the floor with your legs spread to the side. If you’ve never done yoga before or don’t feel flexible, find a pillow or towel to use as support when you bend down.
Follow these two steps:
Step 1: Sit firmly on the floor with both your legs spread wide apart. You can spread them as wide as you feel comfortable. Keep your toes pointing upward from the ground.
Step 2: Slowly bend your torso down to the front; lead and support your body with your hands. If your groin muscle feels too tight, put a pillow in front of you so you don’t have to touch the ground. Stay in this position while breathing in and out calmly 5 times. Remember to keep your toes up. After taking 5 breaths, slowly move your body back to the sitting position. [/caption]
Keep in mind that you need to be extra careful during any form of exercise. If any pose makes you feel pressure or pain, do not continue doing it.
