About This Video


Safiah H
Is plank safe to do during pregnancy? I have always been told that intra-abdominal pressure form plank can create diastasis recti.

Hi Safiah,
Everyone is different and so are the stages of pregnancy. I would say that if it doesn't feel right it should absolutely be skipped and if there are any complications or it's been advised by a medical provider that it isn't appropriate then it should be avoided. Also, if one had a previous practice including plank or not. It really does depend on the individual, where they're at during their journey, and all the details.

This was a really lovely practice for opening up the body and I loved the grounded presence Maria had. I am not pregnant yet I still found a connection to the asanas Maria chose.
