Why Pregnancy Yoga?
Pregnancy is a transitional time in a woman’s life, bringing profound physical and emotional changes. From the moment of conception, the body begins to undergo great changes. During the nine months of pregnancy there are also great emotional adjustments as the expectant mother prepares for birth and becoming a parent. A Yoga practice during pregnancy can help a woman nurture and ground herself during this time of transformation and adjustment.
When practiced mindfully, Yoga increases flexibility, strength, circulation and balance. Pregnancy is such a physical experience and a woman often becomes hyperaware of the many changes her body is going through. Yoga allows her to adapt more gracefully to these changes and to feel a sense of integration and appreciation for her body. Many women find that regular Yoga practice helps to reduce swelling, back and leg pain, and insomnia.
This is a safe and gentle class for women to attend during pregnancy. Specific yoga poses, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques are designed to relieve the physical and emotional discomforts that occur during pregnancy.
