Take time to do what makes the soul happy

– Sadguru

Pregnancy Yoga

In Ayurveda the pregnant woman is viewed as a precious and delicate creature who should be treated with honour and respect. It is important for her to be happy and healthy during this period of major change. Positive physical, energetic and emotional transformations will benefit both herself and her unborn child. Therefore, Yoga is ideal for pregnancy as its techniques of breath, movement, meditation and relaxation support these changes and help prepare for labour.

The key physical benefits of yoga are to enhance strength and fitness of the mother-to-be, keeping the body supple whilst toning the pelvic floor, hip and abdominal core muscles, in preparation for the birthing process. Balance, posture and stability improve to adjust to the gradual weight changes.

Pregnancy Yoga, Fertility Yoga

Yoga helps to boost energy and relieve stress and anxiety. It also promotes relaxation and restful sleep. Through breathing and visualisation techniques, the mother can nurture and nourishingly bond with her baby.

Preparations of the physical body and certain breathing techniques can also help relieve pain in labour and childbirth.

The benefits of Yoga do not end there. Common ailments during pregnancy can be relieved (e.g. swollen joints, heartburn, shortness of breath, constipation, nausea, headache, carpal tunnel syndrome).
