Prenatal yoga is gaining popularity among expectant women. And it’s no wonder. The benefits are plentiful: It helps you connect with your developing baby, gives you nurturing time together, helps you practice controlled breathing in preparation for labor, and it keeps your muscles toned and flexible when you might have had to slow down your pre-pregnancy workout routine.
Expectant moms who do prenatal yoga can expect to learn:
Movements and breathing or calming techniques transfer in a positive way to the baby. Rarely in our busy lives do we take an hour to slow down and center. Taking time to slow down the nervous system while pregnant helps the baby grow in a healthy, relaxed environment.
