Prenatal Yoga is designed to help pregnant individuals prepare for childbirth and their changing bodies. Benefits include strength, flexibility, and confidence.
Calms the mind and reduces stress
Relieves muscular tension
Increases stamina & strength
Helps you find balance, both physically and emotionally
Gives you time to connect with your body & your baby
Opportunity to spend time with other mamas, share, and be supported
You can start attending prenatal classes as early in your pregnancy as you like. However, if you are not feeling well, it may be better to wait to start a yoga regimen until your morning sickness has passed, which is usually in the second trimester.
