Now we're going to be doing chest stuff with rotation, a modified version for pregnancy here. Fingers are going to go behind the head. Go ahead. So you want to make sure that you're starting nice and lifted into your extension. Again, squeeze in the inner thighs together just to provide that extra sense of stability. Taking the breath into, prepare it with the XL, drawing into the posterior tilt coming back. Excellent. Go. So really feeling that stabilization in the pelvis, preparing with an inhale. Exhale, rotate to the right and help pass through the center and XL to the left.

And inhale, trying to keep the same amount of flection in the trunk and the image of just spiraling the rib cage around the spine, utilizing the obliques here and exhale about two to three repetitions or sets. Exhale. Then inhale, come back up to the sitting position and if you choose, you can go back for a second set. And that is chested with rotation, modified for pregnancy.
