What is Yoga for Pregnancy?

Yoga during pregnancy is a safe and effective way to gently stretch and exercise the body. Even if you’ve never taken a yoga class before, you still can enjoy the benefits of prenatal yoga. Granted, there are yoga poses to avoid during pregnancy, but expecting mothers can safely practice a wide variety of pregnancy yoga stretches.


Yoga poses for pregnant women tend to focus on increasing hip and shoulder flexibility, while relieving stress and back pain. You can start practicing prenatal yoga poses anytime during pregnancy, though it’s best to speak with your doctor first. Here are some of the benefits of taking yoga during pregnancy.
