Prenatal Yoga

A baby fills a place in your heart that you never knew was empty.

 

Research suggests that prenatal yoga can have many benefits for both the pregnant woman and their baby. Teaching Prenatal Yoga is fun and exciting, as each student is experiencing continual changes and new emotions.

There are many benefits to Prenatal Yoga, including:

  • Calms the nervous system
  • Reduces stress and anxiety
  • Improves sleep
  • Increase stamina, strength and flexibility of the muscles needed for childbirth
  • Decreases lower back pain, headaches, nausea, carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Relieves tension in the hips, chest, neck, shoulders and back
  • Increases circulation
  • Allows quiet time to connect with baby
  • Pranayama for labor aids in delivery
