There are several general recommendations that you should pay attention to and adhere to.
In the first trimester, you should avoid jumping, abdominal tension, and long-standing poses.
Standing postures can be modified to postures on the floor associated with the opening of the
pelvis (with support), the opening of the diaphragm, and inverted poses.
In the second trimester, the placenta is already formed, the fetus is stronger, so you can practice according to your strength and with a specific program. This can start to include more standing poses, shallow forward bends often with knees apart, some back and leg extensions, back bends with support, light twisting, and some modified inverted poses.
In the third trimester, many poses are more difficult to perform since the fetus is already large.
Therefore, during classes, it is worth paying attention to asanas that improve blood circulation in the legs, which helps with swelling and keeping the fetus held up.
Performing complex balances, abdominal or power poses, deep twists, etc. is Contraindicated and should be avoided.
You should not start practicing hot yoga during pregnancy, but if you are an experienced practitioner, then starting from the second trimester is advised and asking a teacher to show you the pregnancy series is necessary.
