Yoga is a safe and enjoyable way to exercise during pregnancy. Through regular yoga practice you will connect with yourself and your baby, discover a new community of mothers-to-be, reduce stress and physical discomfort, and experience easier pregnancy and labour. Here are some of the most important benefits of pregnancy yoga. Lowers stress hormones by 14 % Yoga will help you reduce the effects of everyday stress by encouraging you to stay in the present moment, connect with your breath and your body. As your body is changing, you may experience some not-so-pleasant symptoms – back pain, tense neck and shoulders, cramps, carpal tunnel syndrome and weak pelvic floor. Pregnancy yoga classes are designed to strengthen your core stability and pelvic floor muscles. It also involves a lot of stretching to relieve your back, neck, shoulders and hips. Better sleep for you. Prepare for Labour ; Research shows that pregnancy yoga contributes to shorter and less painful labour. Through yoga women learn to connect with their bodies, which helps them feel more in control while they’re giving birth. Pregnancy yoga classes include breathing exercises in preparation for labour. Breathing is an excellent tool to manage pain. It also helps use the muscles that are involved in birthing the baby in the most efficient and gentle way. Imagine breathing the baby out (as opposed to pushing the baby out) and you immediately feel more peaceful, whether you’re just thinking about the labour or you’re in the middle of it. Bonding with you baby: A time to completely check in with yourself and your baby. A sense of belonging: Social support is vital for your emotional wellbeing during pregnancy and after birth, but you may not always find a supportive community in your existing network of family and friends. When you come to pregnancy yoga, you will meet other mothers-to-be, who have the same worries, challenges and joys. You will build a circle of friends, who understand exactly what you’re going through. Please check in with your doctor before coming to a class to make sure it is safe for you. When to start ?? After your first trimester once the nausea and fatigue passes and your feeling up to it. Looking forward to meeting you all ! Gemma
