Prenatal yoga classes continue to be very popular for new and expecting mums, whether they have had any experience of yoga or not. Yoga is an ideal way to stay in shape during your pregnancy; it keeps you limber, tones your muscles, and improves your balance and circulation, with little, if any, impact on your joints.
Yoga is also beneficial because it helps you learn to breathe deeply and relax, which will come in handy as you face the physical demands of labour, birth, and motherhood. One of the first things you learn in a yoga class the power of the breath. You will explore a range of breathing techniques that can assist you during pregnancy and also during your birth experience. The breath can assist a woman to work though deep sensations while staying focused and calm.
You will also work through many yoga postures that can be greatly beneficial during pregnancy and during your birth experience. Remaining active during pregnancy and during labour is a great benefit to yourself and your baby as it encourages baby to move into optimal birthing position and strongly supports a natural delivery of your baby into the world. Yoga With Grace also focuses on pelvic floor exercises and the importance of engaging and softening them during pregnancy, during and post-childbirth.
At Yoga With Grace we believe that the benefits aren’t limited to your physical well-being. Taking a class at Yoga With Grace is a great way to meet other women in your community who are expecting to have a baby. Being part of a positive, supportive environment with others like you can give you a regular emotional boost and keep you motivated to continue exercising.
