Relieve cramps

Description     More info

Yoga class for pregnant women focused on relieving cramps.

Namaste In this session we will try to relieve the cramps

in the legs, another symptom that usually occurs in pregnant women

Let's make a proposal of asanas to try alleviate some of the discomfort that occurs

We would start by stretching our right leg sitting on the floor and bending our left knee, carrying the heel towards the right groin and from here we would do a semicircle ,resting our right hand on our right shin

Left hand from behind, inhaling we do a semicircle towards that leg

and exhaling, we go down, in this way we are activating legs and stretching at the same time our body, because are given in the legs but our whole back is going to be affected by that nervous alteration

We can do it with one leg upwards, supporting the sole of the foot

Try Grab our foot sole or if we don't reach the sole of our foot, our ankle or our shin

Trying to stretch that leg as much as possible, at the same time that we are activating this leg with this more intense flexion

We would change sides we stretch the left leg

We bring the right heel to our left groin left hand to the shin right hand from behind

And exhaling we come back, inhaling up

And exhaling we come back, we can do these exercises We grab that knee to activate that leg

and from there we want to try to grab our sole of the foot

either with both hands or the ankle

or our calf but now feeling that leg more active and this one also more compressed

We can also lift our sole of the foot and grab it as a if it were a baby and swinging that leg to one side and to the other to alleviate a little bit that possible those possible cramps

And we would do the same with the other leg

We can also in quadruped position make Left to the left side, that leg straight and our left arm up

that leg active that open torso And watch how our body feels

And we would change sides we would stretch right leg right arm up, look towards your arm

Take two or three breaths here

It's a way to bring the attention to the legs

And here we can do the balasana position

and we can do the balasana position by separating our knees wide apart, bringing our toes together, choosing our variation

Even with the help of a belt if you have one at home

and if not then a strip of cloth or a real belt, would be useful We would lie on our side We would lay down upside down and now with our belt we grab the sole of the foot

We start with the left leg and here we go inhaling and pushing that straight leg into our torso

Feeling how this part is activated

Shoulders relaxed on the ground

Back completely relaxed

And we could go down and go up always avoiding our tummy

Where we feel that extension is happening, that's where we have to work

And with the other leg look for a good grip on the sole of your foot and from elbows You can let go and go back up

Accompany it with your breathing and undo

This would be a proposal for asanas, stretches that you can practice when you feel cramps to try to relieve some of that discomfort in the legs

Namaste pull with your arms, shoulders stay flat on the floor
