pregnancy, a woman undergoes various physical and psychological changes.
The growing weight of the baby and the increased amount of blood in the
body necessitates more physical training, both to stimulate the blood circulation
and counteract fatigue. The woman needs to be emotionally strong in order
to accept the changes taking place in her body and to prepare herself for
the role of a mother. Not only this, she should also be in a state to fight
the daily fatigue and stress that comes free with pregnancy.
Yoga becomes more effective if one begins to practice it before pregnancy
as it helps to prevent many common inconveniences that occur during this
stage. However, it is never too late to begin, as even a short period of
yoga can be effective and yield great results during the birth itself.
Pranayam, the breathing exercises, provide more oxygen and energy, both
to the mother and the child.
Although yoga during pregnancy does not guarantee an easy and unproblematic
birth, but it certainly gives you the power to accept, face, experience
and manage any given situation.
