More about the benefits of yoga during pregnancy:

Yoga can help you have the best possible pregnancy and delivery in many ways:

  • Gives relaxation, centerdness and emotional balance: Yoga can empower you and give you a sense of your inner strength (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) which is invaluable during pregnancy and after baby arrives.

  • Improves body awareness and posture.
  • Breath awareness and breathing exercises can improve effective use of breath and relaxation during labour.
  • Strengthening and stretching of pelvic muscles can ease childbirth and postpartum recovery.
  • Connect with your baby while it is still in the womb: Yoga practice may also stimulate the unborn baby’s sense of touch and body awareness.
  • Nurture yourself and your child in a positive, uplifting environment: Meet and share with other mothers and mothers-to-be.
