Expecting Mother on Beach For Prenatal Yoga Classes

It allows you to learn how to best adjust to the physical demands of pregnancy. A pregnant yoga class calms both your mind and body to relieve physical and emotional stress.

It is a  great way to meet other moms-to-be along your journey to motherhood. That is why we at Orchid Nest provide the warmest and supportive prenatal yoga classes that help you have a truly peaceful and happy pregnancy.

Yoga During Pregnancy

Practicing yoga during pregnancy can improve your ability to relax while your baby grows. The techniques you learn help you understand what your body is going through during pregnancy.

There are a few key things to keep in mind before taking your first or next prenatal yoga class. That includes:

Drink Water

When doing yoga while pregnant, it is crucial that you stay hydrated. If it feels right for you and your baby to have water during yoga, then do it. Never neglect what your body is telling you when you are pregnant.

Focus On Connecting To Your Breath

Each and every class, you will learn how to train yourself to become in tune with your breathing. This helps calm the mind and the nervous system which is why it is so important for labor.

Focus on having smooth, even breaths. Matching the length of each inhale with every exhale.

Be Mindful Of Over Stretching

When you are pregnant, it is much easier to pull a muscle by overdoing a stretch.

Always focus on stability and less on flexibility.

Protect Your Vena Cava

Try not to lay on your back for too long since it may cut off circulation to your vena cava.

The vena cava is the vein that is responsible for delivering unoxygenated blood to your heart.

Taking the time to nurture and connect with yourself while pregnant is one of the most rewarding feelings. At Orchid Nest, our prenatal yoga classes are about support and connecting.
