Prenatal Yoga

Prenatal Yoga

Prenatal Yoga is one of the best things that you can do for yourself, as well as your growing baby.It's important that you find the right yoga practice for you. I attended to a prenatal yoga center.  

If you are expecting and seem a bit confused here are some of the benefits.  (Always consult with your doctor first).  My doctor okay me, he encouraged me to work out and keep active.

Develops Strength -As baby grows within our body, more energy and strength is needed to be able to carry the weight.  Yoga poses strengthen our hips, back, arms and shoulders. 

Balance- Our balance is challenged physically as the fetus grows within our body. Emotionally we are drained due to the increases in  of estrogen and progesterone. As we try to focus on holding and breathing through each yoga pose, we are able to fine tune our balance, physically and emotionally.

Relieves tension from lower back, hips, chest, upper back, shoulders, neck- As baby grows, more stress is put upon these specific muscle groups in our bodies.  We tend to have more of a lordotic/lower back curve due to the increased size of our bellies.  Our hips get tighter due to the added pressure of baby’s weight in our bellies. As our breasts increase in size, our upper back and chest have more tension, along with our neck and shoulders.

Nerves- Also helps through deep breathing, the nervous system goes into parasympathetic mode, which is responsible for relaxation.  When our bodies are in that mode, our digestions operate properly, we tend to sleep better, and our immune system is at its optimal.
