What are the Benefits of practicing Yoga?

Prenatal Benefits

The word yoga derives from the Sanskrit yuj, which means ‘to join’, ‘yoke’ or ‘coming together’. The practice of yoga is a union of the soul, the mind, the emotions and the physical body. So taking a prenatal yoga class is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your baby when you are pregnant. When yoga is practiced regularly, we develop an understanding of our own nature, our physical bodies become more subtle and strong and balance can be established in all parts of our being.

Taking a regular prenatal yoga class will help alleviate some common pregnancy discomforts including;

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Leg cramps
  • Hip pain
  • Varicose veins
  • Shortness of breath
  • Backache
  • Sciatic pain
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Constipation
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Fatigue

The class will help to improve your sense of well being and will help prepare you for the hard work of labour.
