Warrior 2 strengthens the muscles that support your joints at the hips. This is particularly important during pregnancy, since relaxin—a pregnancy hormone that relaxes your connective tissue—makes your joints less stable.

Tip: Position your front leg so that your knee, second toe, and hip are in a line, which reduces pressure on your front knee.
