5. Prenatal Yoga
YOU’RE EXPECTING A BABY, CONGRATULATIONS!
As you walk the path into your Goddess-Mother-Warrioress stance,
allow us to walk with and guide you to build strength and ease
through your journey to birth.
Yoga, the popular practice for everyone from Babies to Seniors, is especially good for prenatal mothers, and very important. Some of the benefits of yoga during pregnancy include but not limited to:
Breathing: Throughout the prenatal yoga sessions, pregnant mothers will learn how to breathe and use the breath as the vehicle that will carry you through your pregnancy and childbirth with more ease. Building respiratory stamina will also create a connection between you and your baby. Learning to breathe, also help to release stress which is essential in preparing you for the ‘breath and mind’ delivery. Yoga helps create flexibility, opening the Hips and strengthen the pelvic floor which not only holds your growing baby but the other organs such as the digestive and reproductive organs. When the pelvic floor is strong mother-to-be is able to carry her baby with more comfort.
Yoga can also decrease nausea, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, shortness of breath and decrease the risk of preterm labor, pregnancy-induced hypertension and intrauterine growth restriction, a condition that slows a baby growth.
Not a surprise, a common complaint during pregnancy from some mothers-to-be issues to do with the legs and feet. With the shift of your center of gravity, your body changes as the baby grow to cause changes in your balance where you will experience much weight placed on the sacrum. Therefore, the sacrum, in order to stay upright to balance the extra weight, places much weight on the lower extremities thus the legs may experience swelling, cramping, especially sometimes at night bringing you out of sleep. One can also suffer aches and pains on the heels and the balls of the feet.
