There are many benefits for you and your baby when you incorporate a prenatal yoga practice during your pregnancy. You build strength and flexibility, while relieving the aches and pains associated with your changing body. Your balance increases and your posture improves, as you become stronger and more flexible, especially in your hips where it is needed the most!
The best part of prenatal yoga is building a community of women who are having babies so they can share and connect with each other.
