During the 40 weeks of pregnancy your body is going through a lot of change, hormonal as well as physical change. Prenatal practice helps you cope and to support these changes by strengthening our bodies during pregnancy.
Prenatal yoga is an opportunity for you to take time out of your busy schedule to bond with your bump. It’s an undisturbed time to experience a growing baby within you. An example would be exhaling whilst at table top position using your abdominal muscle to hug baby up and in closer to you as like you were giving your baby a gentle hug.
Areas such as the lower back, pelvic floor, abdominal and core muscles are compromised during pregnancy. Practicing specific Asanas for prenatal Yoga helps offer women healthy and safe ways to stretch and tone these muscles and strengthens their bodies – especially that lower back to ease the pressure of your growing belly. A properly toned muscle has the right balance between length and strength. Other common ailments can be cured with prenatal yoga practices such as nausea, insomnia, headaches and even shortness of breath. Mindful breathing practices helps to ease the body to loosen and relax getting you less tense and ready for labour.
