The benefits of practicing yoga during pregnancy are many. Yoga in pregnancy promotes general body flexibility and strength and improves circulation. Along with these obvious physical benefits, the deeper sense of relaxation and release of stress achieved benefits both mother and unborn child. Yoga has been shown to ease anxiety during pregnancy and to reduce the levels of the stress hormone cortisol. The quietness of the mind and cultivation of positive emotions helps the mother-to-be to connect with her unborn child and this heightened sense of well-being facilitates the best possible experience of pregnancy and birth for both.
Some teachers become anxious at the thought of a pregnant woman in their class. The mind begins to tick over examining which of the yoga postures can she and can’t she do. Is it safe? It’s good to know that a healthy woman experiencing a low risk pregnancy is capable of doing most foundation yoga poses with some modifications.
