Prenatal Yoga for neck & shoulders 20min


This is a beautiful, short and gentle sequence that will connect you with your breath and release the neck, shoulders and upper back. It will lengthen out your upper body and bring breath and circulation into those areas of the body that begin to tighten up during pregnancy. Great to do if you are in need of relaxation and time out for yourself.

It is suitable for all trimesters and all levels of practitioners. Always check with your doctor or prenatal care provider before beginning any exercise program.

Level: All trimesters
Props: Strap and cushions or bolster (to elevate hips if needed)

  1. Thank you! I'm 36 weeks pregnant and have a lot of neck and shoulder pain. This helped tremendously and I'm so relieved to have this yoga routine to rely on for the reminder of my pregnancy!

  2. i loved it – i'm 9 wks pregnant & love these comforting yoga videos. after a stressful work day, this def helps me release my stress and find my inner peace. thank you so much!! my baby thanks you also! 🙂

  3. Thank you for this video! I am 14 weeks pregnant & have had a very tight neck & shoulders the last several weeks. I work as a dental hygienist, which can be very taxing on the upper body as well & am always looking for upper body stretching/ strengthening. I will be sharing this with my other dental colleagues! THANK YOU.

  4. I'm not pregnant, but I do have scoliosis and workout a lot, so I have a lot of upper back pain along with shoulder and neck tension. I loved this practice! It was gentle enough for me and I feel like I will be doing this every night before bed.
    Also, I love your voice (very calming) and the pace of this practice is just perfect! So many times I feel that yoga practices will either be too fast for me to feel the pose, or too slow and I lose interest (patience is a work in progress for me haha).
    Anyways, sorry this is lengthy, but I just wanted to really thank you for all that you're doing with this yoga channel. Much MUCH appreciated! Have a wonderful day 🙂 You definitely got me as a new subscriber!
