Ordinary yoga balls are round. If you choose an ordinary yoga ball, you must choose a large one, and the inflation is good for 6 to 7 degree. Because the body is relatively bulky and inflexible during pregnancy, the big ball provides more space to support the body, and the inflation does not need to be too full, because the fully inflated ball is more unstable, and easy to roll, which will expose pregnant women to more potential dangers. There is also the peanut yoga ball, which is named after the peanut due to its shape. The peanut yoga ball is easier to maintain stability.
