Class Description: 
Sometimes those involuntary muscle groups in the legs can act up during pregnancy giving us leg cramps and spasms or a feeling of reduced blood flow. This sequence aims to release the legs and stimulate blood follow to those stagnant areas so you can move and sleep and practice with a bit more ease in your pregnancy. Note: you will need a bolster or a few pillows for this class. Check out our video, 'How To Make Your Own Bolster', located in our blog.

After Hike

I'm not pregnant, but this was lovely and helpful to do before a longer practice on a day after an intensive hike.

Even if you're not pregnant..

As an overweight woman I felt these leg exercises were a little easier for me to get into position with. Even though my joints and muscles may be ready to do things, there's a matter of being unable to do it simply because your weight just gets in the way. So I would say that this is definitely useful for overweight people as well as pregnant women!

Great Video!
