POINTS TO RE­MEM­BER WHILE PRAC­TIC­ING YOGA

Mother & Baby - - BUMP TO BIRTH -

Stay hy­drated by sip­ping wa­ter in be­tween. Breathe deeply and reg­u­larly as you stretch. Lis­ten to your body and stretch only as far as you are com­fort­able. If you are al­ready an ad­vanced prac­ti­tioner, then hold your urge to over­stretch. Let it be easy and sim­ple. A bet­ter time to en­joy giv­ing a fillip to your prac­tice would be a few months af­ter de­liv­ery, so keep your eyes on that goal in­stead. For now, make nec­es­sary mod­i­fi­ca­tions keep­ing your preg­nancy in mind, so that your prac­tice is risk-free. Even if you are new to yoga, preg­nancy is a great time to start your prac­tice un­der a trained in­struc­tor, af­ter get­ting a green sig­nal from your gy­nae­col­o­gist. Tak­ing a group pre­na­tal class is also a great way of meet­ing other ex­pec­tant moms. This helps form a sup­port sys­tem that not just keeps you in a pos­i­tive frame of mind but also mo­ti­vated to con­tinue ex­er­cis­ing.

Al or any of these asanas must be prac­tised only un­der the su­per­vi­sion of a trained prac­ti­tioner.
