Prenatal Yoga

Yoga is a gentle and effective way to stay active during your pregnancy. Integrating the practice into your lifestyle throughout your pregnancy allows you to create a lifelong habit to keep throughout your motherhood.  

  • Mindfulness is a practice that is heavily integrated throughout yoga sessions. Mindfulness involves directing one’s attention to the present moment, noticing thoughts, feelings, or sensations, and avoiding judgment of those experiences. Yoga helps pregnant women with significant depression reduce the severity of the mood disorder. Studies have also showed that the more prenatal yoga pregnant women did, the more they benefited psychologically.
  • Preparing for Childbirth can be an incredibly emotional time. Prenatal yoga is useful for reducing women's anxiety toward the experience. Gentle movements throughout pregnancy allow women to feel the control they still have over their bodies and remember that they continue to grow stronger each day they are pregnant. 
  • Shorter Labor Experiences have been reported in women who practice yoga when compared to those who do not.  Women in the prenatal yoga group of studies had a shorter duration of the first stage of labor, as well as the total time of labor.
  • Strengthening the Pelvic Muscles is a practice in yoga that can alleviate discomfort for women. physical discomfort can contribute to the anxiety and depression many women experience feel during pregnancy. The women practicing yoga during pregnancy, studies have found, have higher levels of comfort during labor and the 2 hours post-labor, and reported less labor pain than those who do not practice.
