Garland Pose: There is a modified pose for the later stages of pregnancy. 

Benefits: Stretches the ankles, inner thighs and groin and helps ease childbirth when practiced consistently into late pregnancy. 

Practice: With your feet as close together as possible, squat on your yoga mat. Exhale as you lean forward and fit your torso snugly between your thighs. Bring your palms together as you press your elbows against your thighs. Remain in this position for about 30 seconds. Inhale and slowly return to standing. 

Modified Garland Pose: You will need a chair to practice the modified pose. With your feet as close together as possible, squat and sit on the edge on your chair. Exhale as you lean forward. Bring your palms together as you press your elbows against your thighs. Remain in this position for about 30 seconds. Inhale and slowly return to standing.
