Pregnant women need to be strong enough to meet with the physicals demands of the body, the birth, labor and motherhood. Yoga undoubtedly ensures total relaxation of body, mind and soul during pregnancy. It helps the mind and body to de-stress and keeps you emotionally and physically composed. Though pregnancy is the most beautiful stage in a woman’s life, it also happens to be a time of rapidly occurring emotional upheavals due to hormonal changes and uneasiness. Working women find it equally more taxing. This is the time when you need nurturing and tranquility. Yoga can be one of the best alternatives to feel rejuvenated, reenergize and for your general well-being. More so, it also is a way of connecting to the baby growing inside you in an inexplicable way.
During pregnancy if women diligently practice yoga and related exercises, they most certainly enhance their physical as well as mental strength. Yoga is very safe and provides flexibility in the connective tissues and body muscles. Also, with the help of yoga, meditation and breathing exercises (Pranayama) women can improve their concentration levels and learn more about their growing body too. This makes you acutely aware of your surroundings so that you are more in-sync with your body’s needs and after the baby’s birth gives you better mental clarity and calmness too. All in all, doing yoga during pregnancy not only improves blood and oxygen circulation, gives more strength and vitality but also helps in the overall development of the child and mother.
