What are the BIG benefits of prenatal yoga?
- Improves sleep so you’re charged for your day.
- Increases blood flow and carries healing, detoxifying oxygen to deeper places in the body.
- Increases energy and stamina so that you can avoid bed rest all three trimesters.
- Reduces stress and anxiety which is critical for keeping your baby in growth mode.
- Increases the strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth.
- Decreases lower back pain, nausea, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches and shortness of breath.
- Decreases the risk of preterm labor, pregnancy-induced hypertension and intrauterine growth restriction — a condition that slows a baby’s growth.
I’ll mention it again, reducing stress is so important for having the best pregnancy possible and it takes psychological and physiological intention to manage your stress levels – prenatal yoga will deliver the best bang for your buck.
Included In Your All-Belly Pregnancy Yoga Videos:
Three different and exclusive follow-along videos with Prenatal Yoga certified instructor, Jessica Zilberbrant.
Jessica is the owner of Blossom Yoga Studio where she teaches prenatal yoga several times throughout the week. Here is what Jessica focuses on in each session. You can choose which segments you want to use or do the entire practice:
- Breathing and Centering. You’ll be encouraged to focus on breathing in and out slowly and deeply through the nose. You may also pfractice different breathing techniques. These breathing techniques may help you reduce or manage shortness of breath during pregnancy and work through contractions during labor.
- Table Pose Warm-Ups. You’ll be encouraged to gently move different areas of your body, such as your neck and arms through their full range of motion.
- Standing Poses. While standing, you’ll gently move your body into different positions aimed at developing your strength, flexibility and balance.
- Seated Poses. While sitting or lying on the ground, you’ll gently move your body into different positions aimed at developing your strength, flexibility and balance. Jessica shows you how to modify movements for the third trimester.
- Savasana – Cool down and Relaxation. At the end of each video, you’ll relax your muscles and restore your resting heart rate and breathing rhythm. You may be encouraged to listen to your own breathing, pay close attention to sensations, thoughts and emotions, or repeat a mantra or word to bring about a state of self-awareness and inner calm, connecting to you, and your baby.
