Yoga & Pregnancy

Benefits of Prenatal Yoga

Prenatal Yoga prepares your body and mind for labor and delivery.  In yoga we connect our body, breath and mind.  This is exactly what birthing women need to practice.  Yoga will help you develop stamina and strength.  It will help you gain balance both physically and emotionally.  Yoga calms the nervous system with deep breathing.  This will not only help you feel better while pregnant, but also help with labor and delivery.   Prenatal yoga is shown to improve sleep, reduce stress and anxiety and also decrease lower back pain, nausea, carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms, headaches and shortness of breath.  A prenatal yoga practice is a time for you to slow down and focus your attention on what is happening with your body.  It is a time to connect with yourself and your baby.
