Pregnancy Yoga Sequence Youtube

Root And Sacral Chakra Yoga Sequence
The root chakra is located at the base of the spine in the tailbone area. It is associated with survival instincts, security, and feelings of grounding and stability. The sacral chakra is located in the lower abdomen, just below the navel. It is associated with creativity, sexuality, and feelings of pleasure and joy.
When these two chakras are balanced, we feel secure and grounded, and we are able to express ourselves creatively and enjoy life’s pleasures. When they are out of balance, we may feel insecure or unsupported, and may be unable to express ourselves creatively or feel pleasure in life.
Here is a yoga sequence that can help to balance the root and sacral chakras:
1. Mountain pose (Tadasana). Stand tall with your feet hip-width apart and your arms at your sides.
2. Downward facing dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana). From mountain pose, step or jump your feet back to come into a downward facing dog position. Spread your fingers wide and press into your palms to lengthen your spine.
3. Lunge pose (Anjaneyasana). From downward facing dog, step your right foot forward between your hands. Keep your left knee bent and your left heel on the ground. Lift your torso upward and extend your arms overhead.
4. Triangle pose (Trikonasana). From lunge pose, extend your left arm straight out to the side and bend your right knee. Keep your left heel on the ground and your right toes pointed toward the ceiling.
5. Cobra pose (Bhujangasana). From triangle pose, lower your torso and place your hands on the floor. Arch your back and lift your head and chest upward.
6. Child’s pose (Balasana). From cobra pose, lower your torso to the floor and extend your arms in front of you. Bring your forehead to the floor and extend your hips and tailbone toward the back of your knees.
7. Seated forward fold (Paschimottanasana). Sit on the floor with your legs extended in front of you. Bend your knees and fold your torso forward, extending your arms to the floor.
8. Supine hand-to-big-toe pose (Supta Padangusthasana). Lie on your back with your legs extended. Bend your right knee and place your right hand on your right ankle. Reach your left arm overhead and hold your left big toe.
9. Bridge pose (Setu Bandhasana). Lie on your back with your feet flat on the floor and your knees bent. Place your palms on the floor beside your hips. Press into your palms and lift your hips and torso upward, extending your hips and tailbone toward the ceiling.
10. Corpse pose (Savasana). Lie on your back with your feet flat on the floor and your arms at your sides. Close your eyes and relax your entire body. Stay in this pose for 10-15 minutes.
