Best And Worst Yoga Poses And Postures To Do While Pregnant
Doing yoga while pregnant can be helpful during this time in your life. Not only can it strengthen your body, but it also can be a stress reliever and promote a calmer attitude.
Yoga is a great exercise for pregnant women because it is low-impact and just as focused on mindfulness as it is on physical health. However, just like with any other type of exercise, it’s important to be careful about jumping into it while you’re expecting. Just because it offers a variety of benefits, doesn’t necessarily mean that every pose is good for you at this time.
Although many yoga poses can have positive impacts on you and your baby, others may not be. Practicing certain yoga poses while pregnant puts too much stress on your midsection or can put your baby in an unnatural position. This could potentially lead to discomfort and prenatal difficulties as well as the risk of miscarriage. If you’re using yoga while pregnant as a means of increasing you and your baby’s well-being, take a look at the accompanying checklist. It details some yoga poses you should use and others to avoid while pregnant.
