Maternity yoga pants

What good are pants if they aren't comfortable? OK, especially if your pregnant. And love yoga.

Fortunately, there are many options for the pregnant yoga lover, or even those who just want to be able to exercise comfortably.

Perhaps yoga pants are replacing sweats, since you can wear them practically anywhere. It's important to get yoga pants that fit properly. The waistband can be either drawstring or flat waist. Be realistic when it comes to the, ahem, size of your stomach and waistline when you exercise. If you aren't comfortable, you won't be able to concentrate on your movements and you'll probably fail to finish all of your reps. Pants with a drawstring waist can be more forgiving across the backside than those with an elastic waist. A slightly lower waist--say, just below the belly button--is the most universally flattering; if the waist is too high, your backside will look bigger, too low and your stomach will hang over.

Make sure your yoga pants fit, because oversized clothes make you look even bigger than you are (or might be later). Wearing comfortable shoes will complete your look and help your overall well-being.
Yoga can be very beneficial for pregnant women because it helps you breathe and relax, which in turn can help you adjust to the physical demands of pregnancy, labor, birth, and motherhood. It calms both mind and body, providing the physical and emotional stress relief your body needs throughout the experience of pregnancy. Be sure to tell your instructor you are pregnant. Avoid poses that stretch the muscles too much or that force you to be on your back. When bending forward hinge from the hips. Twist more from the shoulders and back then from the waist. Listen carefully to your body; if you feel discomfort, stop and evaluate.
