Pregnancy Yoga

Find out why this practice is so important


Yoga is a saviour for pregnancy in so many ways. It works wonders on your rapidly-changing body as it prepares it for the ultimate task.

As your bump grows, you’re back will be one of the first things to cause discomfort. Yoga reduces back pain by exercising the deepest tummy muscles that stabilise your back and pelvis. It also strengthens your stomach muscles, which will come in handy when it comes to carrying a full-term bump around.

Perhaps one of the most important benefits of yoga is its ability to relax you and help you control your breathing. This skill is a keeper, throughout pregnancy right through to labour and even beyond.

There are tonnes of pregnancy yoga classes out there focussing on various stages of competency, so pop into your local gym and see what’s on offer.
