Surely by now you have heard plenty of commotion surrounding yoga, the sometimes mysterious but rapidly growing exercise and wellness trend taking the U.S. by storm. While there is quite a bit of ‘hoop-la’ and hysteria surrounding yoga, at the very foundation of the practice are some truly transformative and sometimes even life changing techniques that can help people maximize their physical and mental health, and reduce stress.
Prenatal yoga is a physical activity that can be everything from strengthening and stretching to relaxing and meditative. The practice involves breathing exercises, physical movements, and postures, with the goal of helping women cope with their pregnancy and prepare for the big day with as much ease as possible.
During a time when a woman is experiencing so many new sensations and uncertainties within her body and mind, prenatal yoga can help her connect with these changes in an empowering way. Childbearing is something that all women are born knowing how to do, and prenatal yoga can help each woman bond with their inner-instinct and experience pregnancy with grace and ease.
