Maternity Yoga

December 3rd, 2011 Posted in Yoga

You may have never thought of the possibility of maternity yoga so let me tell you a little about it.  Many people mistakenly believe that pregnant women shouldn’t do any form of exercise.  Exercising while pregnant is very good for you and should be done.  You should not start a new hardcore workout program when you become pregnant.  You should continue with your workout routine through your pregnancy though.

Yoga is a perfect workout for pregnancy because it will allow you to keep your pregnancy throughout the pregnancy.  You should take caution the last 3 months of the pregnancy with your workouts because of the size your belly will become.  But know that the first 6 months are a great time to keep fit and healthy.  The healthier you are, the healthier your baby will be. 

Another great point to make on yoga is that it is a perfect workout for anyone.  Feel free to take you husbands because men can actually benefit more than women from yoga.  Men are naturally less flexible than women and will greatly increase their flexibility from yoga.  Don’t worry you don’t have to know how to do yoga at all before your first class.  Their are yoga instructors that get paid to teach you all you need to know about it so that you can just show up and participate.  Everyone has had their own first class where they didn’t know what to expect so you will fit in just fine.  One point to be aware of is that you do yoga in bare feet so make sure your feet don’t stink.
