During pregnancy, yoga can play a key role in enhancing the experience of this precious time and empower the mum-to-be to have the most conscious birth experience. Yoga can help women enjoy their pregnancy with minimal discomfort, cultivate breath awareness and strengthen the body in preparation for labour.
Practising Yoga is particularly helpful for pregnancy and childbirth as it helps improve your breathing and aids relaxation and also helps to improve your posture and prevent backaches.
Antenatal Yoga classes differ from general yoga classes to allow for the bodily changes of pregnancy; for example the relaxation posture is different and long holding of breath is prohibited.
