  1. Not sure if number 22 is a good idea during pregnancy. All twists really should be open and not across the body.

  2. You are correct about the concern with twist in pregnancy, but this twist is easy to modify bringing the leg/knee below the belly. I will note this on the pose instructions above. Thanks!

  3. bridge pose is the pose of choice to turn a breech baby. Not sure if it’s good otherwise.

  4. I have not heard that Bridge pose would be contraindicated during pregnancy and a quick Google search didn’t turn up anything either. But as always it is better to be cautious and to not practice any pose that makes you feel uncomfortable or uneasy during pregnancy.
