Pregnancy is one of the most beautiful but difficult times of a woman’s life. You want to make sure that you do everything you can to keep your baby healthy, even when this means that you have to give up your comfort. Yoga is well-known all over the world as a light, but effective exercise that anyone can practice, even pregnant women. Here are some of the benefits of Yoga during pregnancy:
- It will relieve your pain. As the pregnancy advances, you will feel discomfort and pain in your back, legs and joints. The good news is that Yoga can help alleviate this. A few minutes of stretching and exercising daily can make a big difference, and you will feel better than ever.
- It will help you to relax and sleep better. Yoga is not just a series of different positions, but includes breathing techniques and meditation. If you have trouble falling asleep, a few minutes of Yoga will solve the problem for you. In addition, it will calm you in those moments when nothing seems to go well.
- It will prevent stretch marks. You are probably trying different lotions to prevent stretch marks. Some of them might be effective, but not as good as Yoga. If you exercise during pregnancy it will be much easier to get rid of extra weight after you deliver the baby.
- It will help you during delivery. The breathing techniques that you use during Yoga are very useful if you are having a natural birth. It will relieve some of the pain and calm you in those moments of stress. If you attend a pre-natal course, you will notice that the most important thing is to know how to breathe during delivery!
