    What is Prenatal Yoga? 
    During pregnancy your body goes through many changes, which creates stress on you mentally and physically. A way to maintain a healthy mind and body is prenatal yoga.

    Prenatal yoga focuses on poses for pregnant women, in order to increase strength and flexibility.

    It also helps pregnant women to develop proper breathing and relaxation techniques for easier and more comfortable labor.

    What Are The Benefits Of Prenatal Yoga?

    • Improved sleep
    • Reduced stress
    • Increased strength, flexibility and endurance
    • Decreased lower back pain
    • Decreased nausea
    • Decreased carpal tunnel syndrome
    • Decreased headaches
    • Reduced risk of preterm labor
    • Lowered risk of intrauterine growth restriction (condition that slows the baby’s growth)
    • In addition to the benefits listed, studies have found there is a relationship between prenatal yoga and the reduction of hypertension-related complications, as well as, improvement of fetal outcome.
