Prenatal Yoga – Yoga is a wonderful way to bond
with your baby while he/she is in the womb.
Yoga helps prepare pregnant mother’s body
and mind for the birth of her child.
Prenatal Yoga : During the 40 weeks of pregnancy your body is going through a lot of change, hormonal as well as physical change. Prenatal practice helps you cope and to support these changes by strengthening our bodies during pregnancy.
Prenatal yoga is an opportunity for you to take time out of your busy schedule to bond with your bump. It’s an undisturbed time to experience a growing baby within you. And while you practice uniting breath with postures (asanas) it creates a moment of mindful connection with you and your baby within. An example would be exhaling whilst at table top position using your abdominal muscle to hug baby up and in closer to you as like you were giving your baby a gentle hug.
Areas such as the lower back, pelvic floor, abdominal and core muscles are compromised during pregnancy. Practicing specific Asanas for prenatal Yoga helps offer women healthy and safe ways to stretch and tone these muscles and strengthen their bodies – especially that lower back to ease the pressure of your growing belly. A properly toned muscle has the right balance between length and strength. Other common ailments can be cured with prenatal yoga practices such as nausea, insomnia, headaches and even shortness of breadth. Mindful breathing practices helps to ease the body to loosen and relax getting you less tense and ready for labour.

Prenatal Yoga Benefits
A study conducted in India and published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that women who regularly practiced yoga during pregnancy were less likely to have preterm labor or to deliver a low-birthweight baby. This study focused on 335 women, one group practiced an hour of prenatal yoga each day and another group walked for 30mins twice a day. Results showed that the group that practices yoga had babies with better birth weights and were more likely to carry their babies to full term.
As you can see there are lots of benefits to prenatal yoga but as a pre-natal instructor i found that our hour sessions together is also a good opportunity to meet other soon to be moms and to enjoy and share their journey in pregnancy together.
