To become a mother is more than just a wonderful feeling. It is a blessing…
Practicing yoga is a great way to prepare yourself physically, mentally and emotionally for pregnancy, childbirth and parenthood. Make use of this time, get to know yourself inside, and cultivate body awareness and strength as you learn to control your breath.
Yoga will teach you how to stay present and you’ll need that when you become a mother. You will learn how to not react blindly, but to act with consideration.
Asanas exercise every part of the body, stretching and toning the muscles and joints, the bones, the vertebral column and the entire skeletal system. These are postures to be held, rather than exercises, and are performed slowly and meditatively, combined with deep abdominal breathing.
Yogic breathing exercises, known as pranayama, revitalize the body and help control the mind while the practice of positive thinking and meditation encourages increased clarity, mental power and concentration.
If you have been practicing yoga earlier then you should carry on with your practice, but slow down a bit. If you are new to yoga, the best time to begin is after your first trimester, ie. the first 3 months.
But before starting on your yoga programme, it is best that you consult your doctor.
Welcome to the world full of immeasurable joy & love. Allow Yoga as your true friend to help you stay calm and prepare you for that special day…
