I'm going to start my AY classes. I have a participant-to-be (or not to be?), she has the above-mentioned state which is getting worse during her pregnancy (26th week), she reports her muscles to become weaker and overstretched. A couple of weeks ago she has her 9th spondyle moved off during her prenetal pilates class.

I'm afraid to let her visit AY classes although she wants it so. Am I right or there are some ways to make it safe? I may add that I'm going to include some Watsu movements to the relaxation part (i.e. supported floating) for my participants.

Thank you in advance!

Hello Anna,

You are right to be concerned because yoga moves in water are only protective with caution of avoiding stretches (including the relaxing moves in Watsu if you hold her under her arm and knee). This lady needs to do therapeutic yoga moves to stabilise her pelvis. Some can be done in water (use the postnatal stretches that are safe in water for pregnant women), but if she continues to do strong stretches on land in her yoga or Pilates class, the benefits of the therapeutic moves will remain limited. I hope she can listen to you and change to therapeutic yoga for two or three weeks! this will serve her well in the long term. Best wishes from Francoise.
