Yoga is an activity that focuses on mental, physical and energetical wellbeing. It uses a series of body positions (called ‘asanas’ or postures) and breathing exercises. Yoga in pregnancy has been shown to reduce women’s anxiety, keep them active, healthy and calm during pregnancy and labour, connect with their baby and avoid or help out with pregnancy complications. Many of the breathing exercises that are taught in yoga are also really helpful when women are giving birth, by helping them cope better with pain and breathe steadily during contractions. Some yoga postures and breathing exercises, though, are not suitable during pregnancy, so it is best to find a yoga teacher who is knowledgable on the subject and who can teach you the right and safe exercises.
