Yoga promotes physical and emotional health in pregnant women and is gentle. Before starting any new fitness routine, including yoga, visit your doctor to make sure it's healthy for your pregnancy.
Prenatal or mild yoga classes for pregnant women are appropriate. These classes adapt to pregnancy demands.
Be mindful of your body at each stance. Rest if you're dizzy, painful, or uncomfortable.
Avoid overstretching or deeper stretches to avoid injury due to pregnancy hormones making joints more flexible.
Stay hydrated by drinking water before, during, and after yoga.
Adjust positions to your comfort and physical restrictions. Tell your yoga instructor about your pregnancy for adaptations.
