5 Fabulous Health Benefits From Doing Yoga While You Are Pregnant

Pregnancy is a different experience for all women. Some enjoy it while others have such a rough time that all they think about is how they are never having another baby! In the end, we all know how things change just by looking at the smile on your newborn’s face. One fear in all women when they are pregnant is gaining weight, which is a must.

Today, women are more self-conscious than ever and want to look their best at whatever age. The secret to maintaining the right weight when pregnant is exercise. At Yoga Sati Life, we offer yoga classes to everyone and if you are a private person; one-on-one private classes can be arranged. We respect that some pregnant women do not feel as comfortable when they are very pregnant, which is understandable.

However, you can have your partner or friend come with you for these private sessions. Why yoga and not any other exercise? One obvious answer is the technique is not as tiring as the gym, which could affect both the mother and the baby. Here are some health benefits that yoga has for the mummies-to-be.

1. Healthier appearance

Looking at an expectant mother who does yoga and one who does not do any form of exercise, you will notice the one doing yoga will appear healthier, both in mind and body. Their skin glows, the ligaments are more elastic and they are generally more active, which comes in handy later on when in labor.

2. Reduces fluid retention

Yoga classes help to boost circulation, which is essential for pregnant women. You may find your legs swollen, which is the major symptom of fluid retention. We have classes that involve stretching exercises that are good in relieve aches and pains caused by the swelling. The main cause for the swelling is that your body fluids are circulating at a slower speed; therefore, some yoga will do the trick.

3. Improves your posture


Pregnancy can cause severe back problems, mainly due to the weight of the baby. With yoga exercises, your body becomes used to new situations, which will later benefit you as the mother when giving birth. Even afterwards, yoga will still benefit your body by strengthening your abdominal muscles and your pelvic floor; you get back your pre-pregnancy shape faster with little effort.

4. Detoxifies the body

Yoga has been known to detoxify the body and mind. The exercises we provide at Yoga Sati Life include yoga therapy, which balances your systems. It effectively gets rid of toxins from the body and improves digestion. Most pregnant women experience indigestion, gassy and feeling bloated almost 24-7! You may be shocked just how effective it is when it comes to expelling gas!

5. Relaxing

When you visit our classrooms at Yoga Sati Life, the ambience is calming. This is best for pregnant women because as we all know – they can get moody! This is not their fault as it is caused by hormonal changes and they have no control over it. However, what yoga involves (breathing exercises) plus the kind of setting yoga classes take place will help you control your emotions, even if you are not pregnant.
