The following are some of the asanas which you can practice during pregnancy

Pranayama: Also known as deep breathing, it is one of an essential asanas for pregnant women. It is nothing but a form of meditation. A majority of pregnant women experience stress and anxiety during the period of their of pregnancy. Deep breathing or Pranayama, when practiced regularly, helps to reduce this stress. Practicing Pranayama is simple; you just need to concentrate on your natural breathing. Feel the movement of the abdomen while you breathe. While inhaling, feel the energy and power whereas while exhaling, throw away the stress and tension, Pranayama when practiced early in the morning can be highly beneficial.
The Butterfly Pose: Also known as Titali Asana, this pose helps to open up the inner thighs and hips and relieves the pressure from the area of the inner thigh. Furthermore, the Titali asana also stretches your groin area. If you practice this asana from the first trimester period of your pregnancy, then you will not find any complications during childbirth.


Tadasana: It is one of the standing poses helpful during pregnancy. To perform Tadasana, you need to stand erect and stretch your feet up to one inch apart and then inhale and simultaneously raise the arms in the upward direction and then raise the heels. Lower the arms and heels downwards as you exhale. This asana exercises the spine and abdominal muscles. However, if you practice this asana then stop raising the heels once you are three months pregnant.
