The best conversations with mothers always take place in silence, when only the heart speaks.

Ankle Rotations

Sit against a wall and stretch your legs out in front of you.

Place a rolled-up mat or blanket under your knees.

Point your toes toward the ceiling and bring them toward your body, so that your foot makes a right angle with the floor.

Do not move your knees as you rotate your left ankle clockwise about 10 times and then repeat in a counterclockwise direction.

Repeat with the right ankle.

Benefits

  • Stretches the ankle muscles, tendons and calf muscles
  • Increases blood flow through your legs and feet
  • Prevents ankle injuries

Take it Easy

If you were doing yoga before becoming pregnant, don't worry if you can't do all the same poses now that you are pregnant. Anyone practicing prenatal yoga should consult their doctor about their routine. If you are unable to practice yoga during your pregnancy, take it easy and use this time to practice breathing and meditation.
