YogaBellies Top 5 Yoga tips for Pregnancy.
- Don’t overstretch!
The relaxin hormone in your body during pregnancy can make you feel more flexible than usual. Start by going 50% as far as you think you can – yoga is incredible for you and your body, whether you can touch your toes or not!
- Be gentle with yourself!
You are growing a human! Don’t skip Savasana (the relaxation portion at the end). Relax and enjoy this incredible time just for you and your baby.
- Listen to your body
there are lots of changes happening at the moment and your body has an innate way of letting you know how to look after it. If at any point anything feels too much (physically or mentally), relax in Child’s Pose for as long as you need.
This may sound simple but it’s very easy to concentrate on the poses and forget the importance of breathing. We teach specific breathing techniques that will not only help you during your practice, but will be there for you throughout your pregnancy, labour and beyond. Pregnancy Yoga
- Most importantly
make sure your teacher is qualified in prenatal yoga. A good quality yoga teacher will point you in this direction anyway, but it’s best to check. At YogaBellies we go through extensive training to ensure we understand not only yoga, but all things women, birth and beyond to make sure you are completely taken care of during this beautiful time in your life!
