Benefits of practicing yoga during pregnancy include:
- Connection with baby: By focusing attention and working with your breath through each pose, you become more aware of what is happening within.
- Stamina and Strength: As baby grows, more energy is needed to carry the weight. Yoga poses help to help to strengthen hips, back, arms and shoulders. Many women who regularly practice yoga also find they regain their shape and fitness quicker after giving birth.
- Calm: Yoga has a calming effect on the nervous system, and this is transmitted to the baby.
- Sense of community: Friendships form through spending time with other pregnant women, resulting in an emotionally bonding experience.
- Balance: Both physical and emotional.
- Improved sleep and digestion: Through promoting relaxation (bringing your body into parasympathetic mode), digestion operates properly, we sleep better and our immune system is optimal.
- Reduced swelling: The breathing techniques and poses in yoga improves blood circulation and as a result, swelling is reduced and our immune system is enhanced, creating a healthy environment for a thriving baby.
