Prenatal Yoga in Durham Region – how yoga will help your pregancy

Congratulations on your pregnancy! This is an incredible time of growth and change for you. Yoga can help your body feel great and can also relieve some of the discomforts of pregnancy. Read on for some of the reasons to consider prenatal yoga and some of the best places to find Prenantal Yoga in Durham Region.

How will prenatal yoga help your pregnancy?

  • Prenatal yoga helps your body in many different ways. During pregnancy your body is changing at a rapid rate. Prenatal yoga will support your body as it changes and shifts. You will experience changes in the centre of your balance, which in turn can cause you to use different muscle groups in different ways than you normally do. Prenatal yoga will help strengthen and support these specific muscle groups.
  • Prenatal yoga will also strengthen those specific muscles used in labour and delivery, specfically your pelvic floor, hip, and abdominal core muscles.
  • Prenatal yoga also helps some of the common difficulties associated with pregnancy, including back pain, nausea, and headaches (Today’s Parent)
  • Prenatal yoga will also teach you some fantastic breathing techniques and will help you to practice grounding yourself – an important thing during labour and delivery.
  • You might not consider it, but prenatal yoga can strengthen your bond with your baby. It teaches you to be present in the moment and really notice and connect with your baby.
