Pre-Natal Yoga Reasons

Prenatal Yoga provides many benefits to the pregnant mom. Class provides a place for moms to meet other like minded people. Moms can ask questions of other moms about being pregnant, or seek advice in a community of non-judgement, non competitiveness an no expectations. No expectations in this context means being content with the now.

When you exercise alone you may not have the motivation to continue so  a prenatal yoga class provides the motivation to continue through out the pregnancy. The benefits are well worth it. The flexibility practiced in prenatal yoga provides a potentially easier birth and or a smoother recovery. The strength that is built in the class will help with additional demands on the body from baby weight, breast enlargement and lower back pain. After the birth the additional strength will aid in lifting your baby from the crib, car or floor without potentially harming.

We use several different methods of meditation to help with the birthing process. In the past we have taught a breathing exercise to ease the discomfort of birthing, now we have several options of pranayama to offer the mothers. As with everything in this life one doesn’t fit all. We also introduce scent awareness, sound awareness and visual aids so the mother can find a perfect fit for her needs in order to handle the stress of birthing.

Savasana provides the perfect retreat for the expecting mom. Traditional corpse posed is switched to a more appropriate position. I use in my teaching two options that are called Throne and propped side corpse, I give the mom the option to use them both and they choose which they would like to practice savasana. Throne was loved so much by one expectant mom that she reconstructed the  Throne at home to meditate.

Prenatal Yoga has many benefits for the pregnant mom, with so many options available to the mom there is always something to fit her needs.
