Benefits of practicing Prenatal Yoga?

Yoga strengthens the body helping it to cope with the extra weight of carrying your baby. Yoga poses focus on correct postural alignment helping women to understand the changes and effects pregnancy can have on their bodies.

Regular practice can help relieve physical tension and stresses from the body, which often build up as a result of the baby growing, circulation is improved so that swelling due to the extra fluid and blood flow is less likely, this also assists with lymphatic drainage enhancing immunity and creating a healthier environment for you and your baby.

Practicing Yoga whilst pregnant can help to lift your mood at a time when you can feel overwhelmed. Yoga helps you to accept and understand the changes that may be occurring hormonally and the effects this can have both physically and physiologically.

Pregnancy Yoga incorporates various breathing techniques to calm the nervous system helping you to feel more relaxed through pregnancy, these breathing exercises are also beneficial during labour helping you to stay calm and in control no matter what path the birth takes.

Meditation and Visualisation exercises help deal with anxiety and quieten an over active mind aiding relaxation, better sleep and an overall greater sense of wellbeing.

Pregnancy Yoga Flow Routine

pregnancy dancer outsideI’ve been practicing Yoga all the way through my pregnancy and have found this incredibly beneficial with helping to support my changing body, keeping my mind calm and finding that special time where I can relax and focus on my baby. I thought it would be great to share this with you so here’s a quick Yoga Flow workout for you all to enjoy during pregnancy. * always consult your GP or midwife before you commence in any exercise program.

 Pregnancy Yoga Flow Routine

The Sun Salutations have been adapted to accommodate your changing body and bump. Feel free to hold postures slightly longer perhaps 5 to 10 breaths and repeat the sequence between 3 – 6 times. Always let the breath lead you into the Yoga asanas (poses) and practice breathing consciously (Ujjai Breath is ideal), never force the postures this should feel like your gently opening the body up. Be mindful of your own posture drawing attention to pelvic alignment, keeping a slight lift in the pelvic floor and feeling like your gently hugging your baby towards you. Allow your shoulders to draw back slightly so that your chest is open and keep your jaw and facial muscles soft and relaxed.

You can relax at the end in Savasana either using cushions or Yoga bolsters for support and lying on your left side if lying on your back is no longer comfortable, close the eyes and visualise your baby happy, peaceful and content as you also rest feeling completely relaxed and at ease.
