Yoga and Pregnancy: gaining flexibility and creating a dialogue with your body

Practicing Yoga during pregnancy is entirely possible. The right combination of physical exercise and breathing helps the body to increase flexibility and oxygenation of the blood.

The existing benefits of practicing yoga are beneficial for both the mother and the baby. Practicing yoga during pregnancy creates a new possibility for self-listening and it becomes a good way to communicate not only with the mom’s ever-changing body and her baby.

Yoga and Pregnancy

Knowing your own emotions during pregnancy helps you face the gestation period with confidence and serenity.

Physically your muscles relax, increase elasticity, and improve posture. Accepting the physical changes happening during pregnancy is important.  Yoga helps to understand them as well as to create a state of compassion for oneself. In addition, breathing can be useful at birth for effort management and pain control.

Yoga during pregnancy is useful not only for the mother but also for the baby: both who will benefit from the calm state and positive energy of the mother.  

Practicing yoga during pregnancy teaches the mom-to-be to get in touch with your inner self, and can be an experience of harmony and dialogue between you and your baby. 

Regardless of the benefits mentioned above, it is always important to consult your doctor before starting any sort of exercise during pregnancy.
