Yoga for Prenatal Health
There are several benefits of prenatal yoga at Moksha Wellness Yoga. Improves sleep, reduces stress and anxiety, and increases the strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth. It also decreases lower back pain, nausea, carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms, headaches and shortness of breath.
A typical prenatal yoga class may involve
1) Breathing techniques that may help reduce or manage shortness of breath during pregnancy and work through contractions during labor.
2) Gentle stretching to gently move different areas of the body, such as the neck and arms, through their full range of motion.
3) Postures while standing, sitting or lying on the ground, aimed at developing strength, flexibility and balance.
4) Cool down and relaxation to relax the muscles and restore the resting heart rate and breathing rhythm.
Stay in shape during pregnancy with prenatal yoga. Do these prenatal stretches to become more flexible, keep the muscles loose, and feel more relaxed during pregnancy.
