Prenatal Yoga (Pregnancy Yoga) classes are designed for expecting mums-to-be. While it is not a traditional form of yoga, it is based on established yoga principles and adapted to be “the perfect” form of exercise for expecting moms.
Traditional yoga classes are not recommended for pregnant women. Pregnancy yoga, however is ideal and specifically designed to be gentle enough yet still provide enough physical movement to keep you active in a safe and relaxed way.
Pregnancy yoga focuses a lot on breathing exercises and prepares you in many ways for giving birth. Mental focus and breathing techniques give you very practical tools for when you go into labour.
