The Benefits of Postnatal Yoga

During a time of pregnancy, many women attend a pregnancy yoga class to keep toned, to stay flexible, to prepare their bodies for labour and birth, and also to meet other pregnant women in their area. But once the baby is born, it can be easy to lose the connection with other pregnant women and feel disheartened about the physical and emotional effects childbirth can have on your baby.

Postnatal yoga helps you to recover from pregnancy and birth. It heals the body and mind, and repair all the tissues back to their former glory. It is specially designed for mothers with their babies so that little one can also incorporate into the practice. It keeps the babies entertained and the babies as part of the yoga itself.

The yoga classes after pregnancy can be taken from about four to six weeks after the childbirth to six months. The gentle and focused exercise will help the body come back into shape again and also deal with fluctuating moods because of hormonal changes.
