Benefits of Yoga During Pregnancy

If you are pregnant or thinking about getting pregnant this is a wonderful time to bring yoga into your life.

 

A study in the Journal of Obstetric, Gynecologic, & Neonatal Nursing found that women who started a yoga practice including meditation early in pregnancy effectively reduced stress and anxiety by the time they delivered.

 

Yoga is not just set of exercises performed mechanically, it bonds mind and body and involves:

 

  • Breathing. Breathing techniques might help you reduce or manage shortness of breath during pregnancy and work through contractions during labor.
  • Gentle stretching. No vigorous exercises, but more gradual and gentle stretching.
  • Postures. You’ll gently move your body into different positions aimed at developing your strength, flexibility and balance.
  • Relaxation. You might be encouraged to listen to your own breathing, pay close attention to sensations, thoughts and emotions and will learn to relax.
