Come back to hands and knees with your wrists stacked under your shoulders. Step your right knee forward to the inside of your right wrist. Make sure your right foot is active, so the top of the foot is pressing into the floor and your toes are flexed. With an inhale, come up onto your fingertips to lift the chest and lengthen the spine. As you exhale, slowly lower your torso toward the floor. If you’re further on in your pregnancy, you might be more comfortable staying relatively upright. But, if you have room to go further without compressing the belly, you might rest your head on a bolster, blocks, stacked fists, or even directly on the floor beneath you. Stay for at least five breaths, then repeat on the other side.
