Pregnancy is a time when a woman’s body is at it’s fullest potential. Yoga can be an invaluable tool in making the process of pregnancy and birth an overall easier and more positive experience. Doing yoga during pregnancy with awareness creates a state of calmness. When a pregnant women feels inner clarity, her confidence grows. When she feels peaceful, her anxiety concerning the birth process decreases. The mind becomes involved in the body movements. This focus allows the pregnant woman to tune out distracting forces around her during labor and to respond appropriately to the contractions. Yoga during pregnancy offers no guarantees for an easier or quicker birth. However, your increased body awareness and enhanced ability to breathe and relax will help you adjust to the physical demands of labour, birth, and motherhood!

Before beginning any prenatal exercise program, it is necessary to obtain your physician’s consent. Do not exercise strenuously if you have a history of miscarriages, or cervical insufficiency. During pregnancy the cervix should remain tight to prevent infection. Start doing physical asanas from the second trimester onwards. Practice in a cool, quiet, and well-ventilated room. Place blankets, pillows, a folding chair, and mat or rug nearby. Wear loose, comfortable clothing which will not restrict movement. Do all the poses with bare feet. Avoid poses which overstretch the abdominal muscles.
