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.

This is your story. Let me help you tell it. I’m Kristin, and I’m so happy you’re here. I’m a Durham region photographer specializing in motherhood, maternity, and newborn photography. Let’s chase sunsets together and create some amazing memories. You’re a dreamer and a romantic. You want someone to fully see you and your family and to capture the beauty in the big moments and the small details. Your favourite photographs are the ones that capture a feeling, not the perfectly posed photos. You crave something a little bit different from the everyday – something bolder, more artistic, and even a little cinematic. I see you. Motherhood isn’t always perfect moments. Motherhood is messy. Motherhood is hard. Motherhood is freaking unbelievable. It’s perfectly imperfect. Let’s capture the beautiful chaos of motherhood.
