Pregnancy Yoga at The Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy

PREGNANCY YOGA

Pregnancy is a great personal journey for any woman and is a time of mental and physical change. It can also be a challenging time, as adjustments need to be made as the body starts to change shape. A pregnancy yoga practice can help address some of these changes in a positive way. Women who practice yoga during pregnancy are able to be really present in their bodies and connect with their unborn child. Yoga has a calming effect on the mother, which, in turn, is transmitted to the baby.

Breathing techniques learnt in pregnancy yoga can be used at anytime during pregnancy and many women find them very useful when giving birth. Focusing on the breath can have a profound effect; by learning to control the breath women may feel empowered and more in control of their thoughts and body.

HOW DOES PREGNANCY YOGA DIFFER FROM OTHER STYLES?

Pregnancy yoga differs from general yoga classes, inasmuch we adapt many of the classical poses to accommodate the changes in the body. Twists are open and poses are fluid and nurturing for the mum to be. This creates space in the body and helps to alleviate some of the common ailments often associated with pregnancy such as backache, heartburn, swollen limbs, etc.

THE BENEFITS OF PREGNANCY YOGA

By practising yoga, the body is strengthened and toned. Many women find that they regain their shape and fitness more quickly after giving birth. In addition to this, spending time in a pregnancy yoga class with other women can be an emotionally bonding experience.
