Should I try Pre-natal Yoga?

I get asked this a lot when people find out that I teach yoga. I tell them it helps with breathing, it helps you to relax but… be careful when you decide to sign up for a class. Its important that the instructor is qualified to teach prenatal yoga. To find out her qualifications you can ask her, look her up at the Yoga Alliance website where she will be listed as a Registered Prenatal Yoga Instructor or ask for recommendations. This is a very special time in your life and you need to be cautious. With that being said, there are some teachers of prenatal yoga that have found no need to register with Yoga Alliance maybe because they have nursing degrees, doulas, midwifes or they have been teaching forever. I would still like to ask how they are continuing their education in prenatal yoga.

Yoga is very beneficial pregnant woman – like I said earlier it helps with breathing and relaxation. These benefits alone can help with the pregnancy, labor, birth and motherhood. The breathing techniques help the mother to calm the mind and body, providing the time for the body to destress and relax. The whole class is focused on preparing the mother for the birth and labor by hip openers, strength building, chest expansion and meditation.

Taking a prenatal yoga class is a great way to meet like minded people – make new friends and share your new experiences with

Any perception can connect us to reality, properly and fully. What we see doesn't have to be pretty, particularly; we can appreciate anything that exists. There is some principle of magic in everything, some living quality. Something living, something real, is taking place in everything. --Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
