Prenatal Yoga Routine – Guided by Michael Plasha


Michael Plasha, E-RYT 500, RPYT and YACEP has been studying and practicing yoga and meditation for over 45 years. These are registry marks by Yoga Alliance for levels of yoga teaching standards. E-RYT 500 is their highest level including 500 hours of training and thousands of hours of teaching.  RPYT means registered prenatal yoga teacher and YACEP is Yoga Alliance continuing education provider. Plasha has over 1,000 hours of training by several schools. To learn more about him and his qualifications go to Qualifications.



This 50 minute practice includes a 26-minute deep relaxation practice (Yoga Nidra). During this practice, please lie on your left side with a pillow under your head and one between the knees. Did you know 15 minutes of Yoga Nidra is equal to two hours of sleep? Being sleep deprived is common  during pregnancy and raising children. I should know, I have raised 7! This sequence also includes postures and movements suitable for the second and third trimester. You may want to use a wall for triangle to maintain your balance. Please consult with your doctor before doing this and make sure you have no contraindications.

I am registered as a R-PYT (registered prenatal yoga teacher) and was certified by the Integral Yoga Institute in 1998. Our training was 130 hours and exceeded the Yoga Alliance standard. Since then there are over 400 yoga babies in the Erie area! Some are now teenagers. Visit my class page about any prenatal yoga classes.

Not all yoga is suitable for everyone. To reduce strain or risk of injury, consult your doctor before beginning this program or any exercise
