I have been teaching prenatal yoga for mamas-to-be for a few years and love all the growing bellies, beautiful connections and divine energy.
I was blessed to move through my own journey of pregnancy and explore the practice of yoga and meditation as my body was changing.
During pregnancy, your body goes through many changes, which creates stress on you mentally and physically. A way to maintain a healthy mind and body is prenatal yoga because it focuses on poses for pregnant women, in order to increase strength and flexibility. It also helps pregnant women to develop proper breathing and relaxation techniques for easier and more comfortable labor.
What are the Benefits of Prenatal Yoga?
There are many benefits because it is a form of exercise that also speaks to your pregnancy wellness.
- Improved sleep
- Reduced stress
- Increased strength, flexibility, and endurance
- Decreased lower back pain
- Decreased nausea
- Decreased carpal tunnel syndrome
- Decreased headaches
- Reduced risk of preterm labor
- Lowered risk of intrauterine growth restriction (a condition that slows the baby’s growth)
In addition to the benefits listed, studies have found there is a relationship between prenatal yoga and the reduction of hypertension-related complications, as well as, improvement of fetal outcome.
Why Postpartum yoga?
Once you’re cleared for exercise following childbirth, yoga can be a great way to build strength, improve posture, increase energy levels, and reduce symptoms of postpartum depression.
Adding certain postpartum yoga poses to your weekly routine also helps the recovery process when it comes to a weakened pelvic floor, tight hips, sore shoulders or neck, lack of endurance, and over-stretched abdominal muscles.
The benefits of post-baby yoga are amazing and supports your body to heal in a kind and loving way. Take it slow at first, know what poses to avoid and cultivate patience for your practice.
Self love and compassion – your body created a miracle
“So many moms want to rush back to drop baby weight and hit the gym hardcore. But, in reality, yoga is a much better way to initiate the healing process and understand your body and where it is,” says Aaptiv Trainer Jaime McFaden. “I suggest for all moms to start slow. You have to re-familiarize yourself with your body. Remember, you just changed your entire body for nearly one year. So give it time before you try and bounce back.”
