Prenatal Yoga / Pregnancy Yoga
Yoga for pregnancy
Relieve aches and pains, boost circulation and immunity and experience a general sense of health and well-being during pregnancy with prenatal yoga, or pregnancy yoga.
Women who practice prenatal yoga condition their body to experience minimal discomfort during pregnancy and strengthen it in preparation for labour. Pregnancy yoga is beneficial for mother and baby from the second trimester onwards, right until it is time for childbirth.
Prenatal yoga is designed to relax and calm body and mind, with gentle poses that condition and stretch the whole body without stressing it. Blood flow is stimulated, increasing the fresh oxygen supply to your muscles and organs as well as to your child in the womb. The sense of calm and well-being in the expectant mother also enhances immunity.
If you’re pregnant, prenatal yoga will be extremely effective to promote a healthy, happy pregnancy and birth. Yoga unites the body and mind, encourages deep relaxation and strengthens and tones the muscles of the pelvic floor, making it one of the best preparatory practices for birth.
Prenatal yoga workshop and classes
Pregnancy yoga is being offered as the Moving into Motherhood workshop twice a year to prepare expectant mothers to perform a prenatal yoga practice. On a weekly basis, the Lunar Sadhana class is very appropriate for pregnancy as it is very slow and aimed towards greater relaxation, working wonders in connecting mother and baby.
During the Moving into Motherhood workshop we will focus on:
– Breath & body connection.
– Pelvic floor awareness, strength & coordination.
– Mom & baby energetic bonding.
– Positive affirmations & mental focus.
– Balance of body, mind & spirit.
The Moving into Motherhood pregnancy yoga workshop is held bi-annually and the next workshop will be held on 10 February 2018. The price is 25 euro and Dads are encouraged to join at no extra charge. 🙂
