Prenatal Yoga helps calm expecting moms
The transformation of a woman’s body during pregnancy is dramatic and life changing to say the least. Unfortunately, this transformation comes at a high price, giving up control of one’s body and dealing with the discomforts of pregnancy. In order to help alleviate many of the bodily discomforts of pregnancy, such as back pain, tight shoulders, etc. as well as the mental obstacles such as high stress and waves of emotions, an increasing number of women are turning to Prenatal yoga.
“Yoga helps expectant mothers cultivate inner calm, specifically through the breathing and meditation exercises.” explained Zeny Ogrisseg, Prenatal yoga instructor of Yoga Loft Hawaii.
Prenatal yoga is also being praised for its physical benefits and the way in which it can help prepare the body for giving birth.
“In my Prenatal class I focus specifically on exercises that help delivery such as gentle core strengthening exercises as well as poses to stretch the lower back and open the hips. The breathing exercises of Yoga help to keep both mother and baby oxygenated during delivery, as well as give moms the stamina to endure delivery.” said Zeny.
