Practicing yoga during your pregnancy is one of the best things you can do for yourself, as well as for your growing baby. It’s important to practice in a safe environment with experienced teachers and we offer just that with our pregnancy courses – which have endless benefits! Here’s a roundup of the top reasons to practice pregnancy yoga:
It Eases Morning Sickness and Reduces Back Pain
It is said that up to 85% of pregnant women will experience nausea which can be one of the toughest parts. Breathing techniques practiced throughout a class can help reduce some morning sickness.
Those who practice yoga during their pregnancy often see an improvement in posture, as well as easing backache which is common during pregnancy.
Yoga Helps to Prepare for Labour
Controlled breathing forms the main part of all yoga practices so it’s no wonder it is so great for preparing your body and mind for labour. During our pregnancy course, you’ll learn different breathing techniques which can help you stay calm.
Meet Other Fellow Mums-To-Be
It’s a comfortable feeling to be surrounded by other women in the same boat! Having a strong support network throughout pregnancy is essential for your health. Having other mums-to-be to go through the journey with can provide the best possible support!
Connect with your Little One
One of the best things about pregnancy yoga is it allows you time to connect with your baby – feel every kick and movement as you practice by slowing down and focusing your attention to what is going on within your body.
Yoga Increases Circulation
Circulation is enhanced during your pregnancy yoga practice as your muscles become elongated. When the body is circulated within your body, swelling decreases and immunity is enhanced! This helps to create a healthy environment for a thriving baby.
