Prenatal Yoga

Why Prenatal Yoga?

While practicing prenatal yoga during pregnancy has been proven to help prepare the body for childbirth, there are also a number of emotional and spiritual benefits. Physically, prenatal yoga strengthens the muscles used in childbirth, stretches the body to enhance flexibility, increases circulation, reduces lower back discomfort and swelling around sensitive joints, and alleviates nausea and other common pregnancy discomforts. Spiritually, the intentional breathing, meditation and inward reflection of yoga provides a deeper sense of awareness of oneself during pregnancy and can nourish the mind and soul.

Yoga also offers an opportunity to tune into your sensations and to connect with your baby inside of you. This initiates the process of bonding and supports you in cultivating your relationship with your baby even before he or she is born. A sense of community is also essential for any mom-to-be. Connecting with other pregnant women provides a sense of support and can help ground you in your experience.
