Prenatal yoga

Are you expecting? Or just expecting to be expecting soon? Either way, prenatal yoga is just what you need. Yoga classes that are specifically designed for a pregnant woman can help you get in shape for your pregnancy and keep you in shape during the most important nine months of your life.

In addition to fitness and weight management, prenatal yoga has many health benefits. It helps to improve your core strength, which is very helpful when it comes to carrying a child. In addition, it can help to keep your body flexible and relieve the tension and pain you'll probably experience with a baby on the way. And that flexibility and strength will come in handy when it's time to deliver as well.

Not only does prenatal yoga offer physical health benefits, it offers great mental health benefits as well. Studies show that pregnant women who keep their stress levels down have a healthier pregnancy than the more stressed out moms-to-be. Yoga is a great way to achieve a higher level of relaxation, keeping you cool and calm as you plan for baby's arrival.

And don't just drop the yoga habit once the little one has arrived! Just like prenatal yoga, postnatal yoga has many benefits. It can help new mothers lose the extra pregnancy weight, build strength, and give them much needed time to wind down. Engage in yoga before, during, and after your pregnancy and you (and your body) will handle the transition to motherhood perfectly.
