Always check with your healthcare provider before doing any exercise.
That said, Ma Yoga® is alignment based, which means it helps the muscles and bones move in the direction they naturally want to go. This means instead of overstretching we stabilize joints; instead of over-efforting we relax tense muscles; and and instead of being passive, we strengthen the muscles that we need to help us carry baby, inside and out. And it also often means relieving aches and pains!
If instead you feel that something is hurting more when you are doing the yoga, the best thing to do is find a local yoga teacher to help you with your alignment. You can also contact us to schedule an affordable Skype one-on-one session so we can help make sure your yoga is helping your body rather than increasing an existing misalignment.
If you have a specific question about a practice, you can reach out directly to the teacher. Right on the same page as each video is a contact form, so you can asks questions of the teacher directly – and submit requests!
You can also ask questions of our teachers in the Ma Yoga Mamas Facebook group, and get different perspectives. Yoga teachers love opportunities to help people with yoga so please ask away!
