717. Wednesday Q&A: Hip & Low Back Pain During Pregnancy, Cervical Spine Arthritis, & Misconceptions About Exercise & Movement Practices

Apr 10, 2024


Welcome to Wednesday Q&A, where you ask questions and we answer them!


In this Wednesday Q&A, we answer your questions about hip and low back pain during pregnancy, cervical spine arthritis, and misconceptions about exercise and movement practices.


Your questions:

  • Any suggestions for hip and low back pain during pregnancy? I’m in my 4th month and the pain gets worse from sitting for too long but also from working out. I’m keeping my exercise routine light and easy but the pain flares up, specifically on one side. Yoga, stretching, and even walking doesn’t feel as good as pre-pregnancy because I lost my body and movement awareness. Thanks!
  • A long-term yogi & friend (mid-60s) has recently been diagnosed with arthritis in her cervical spine, C2-C5. She has a fair bit of pain & is careful what she does in our LYT classes. In your opinion is there anything that I can do to help her?
  • What are some common misconceptions about exercise and movement practices?
