After yoga on Monday morning and yoga tonight I feel very bendy and very tired! I asked my teacher if there were any poses that they don’t recommend in the 3rd tri because they’re known to shift the baby’s position. I’ve been told by multiple sources that downward facing dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana) is known to help a breech baby move to head-down. So that made me wonder if something like a headstand or handstand would make a head-down baby flip. Nope. Apparently not. If I can still get into a head or hand stand at 40 weeks I might die or shock….

I did, however do this tonight (vashistasana).

But the fullest expression of the pose is this. Oh, yeah, sure. No problem.
