Yoga Mamas!

yoga for momsBoth relaxing and energizing, yoga is a natural choice for mama exercise! We recommend a yoga practice for expectant and new mothers in particular because it inherently carves out a moment of “me time” in which to stretch, smile, cry, connect and relax.

The benefits of yoga are HUGE, both before and after Baby’s birth…

Benefits of Prenatal Yoga:

  • Builds stamina for carrying, birthing and caring for baby.
  • Provides balance in Mama’s otherwise shifting center of gravity and emotional focus.
  • Relieves tension in the back, hips and shoulders brought about by extra weight.
  • Slows Mama, allowing her to enjoy the experience of pregnancy and connection with her baby.
  • Breathing exercises which will help during labor contractions.

Benefits of Postnatal Yoga:

  • Rebuild core and pelvis strength — these muscles were stretched to the limit during pregnancy! Strengthening them will help mama avoid back pain, injury and incontinence.
  • Strong arms for carrying Baby!
  • Endorphins and dopamine produced during regular exercise can help ward off postpartum depression.
  • Community found in a like-minded group of yoga mamas can help lessen feelings of loneliness and isolation.
  • Bonding with baby over Mom and Me yoga is wonderful and can pave the way for your growing child’s appreciation for yoga, exercise and meditation.
