Yoga and Pregnancy
19 August 2011,13:22:30 BST
Prenatal yoga is a great way to stay in shape and feel fantastic, while doing the best for your unborn baby. It prepares you mentally and physically for giving birth. You will also enjoy meeting other expectant mums.
If you are a newcomer, your pregnancy is a great time to get into a routine - you will find you want to continue long after the birth. And, after childbirth, the poses help restore your body's shape. (However, doctors recommend waiting six weeks before resuming classes, longer following a caesarean.)
If you already enjoy yoga sessions, you'll find that the adaptations to your practice will increase as your pregnancy progresses. Look for specific prenatal programs, and, if you are already a devotee, some adaptation to your routine may be necessary.
Finally, whether you are an old hand or a newcomer you are, tell your instructor about your pregnancy.
If you are wondering about yoga clothing while you are pregnant, of course you need to go for yoga wear in which you feel comfortable- this is even more important for expectant mums. As you grow bigger, you will need to look into maternity yoga clothing.
