Breath­ing – this is the foun­da­tion of what yoga is, with the em­pha­sis on ‘con­scious breath­ing’ slowly through your nose. This helps re­duce short­ness of breath and will come in handy to ease through con­trac­tions dur­ing labour. Stretch­ing – a ne­ces­sity for what­ever ex­er­cise you do and es­pe­cially in pre­na­tal yoga where gen­tle stretch­ing is a main com­po­nent of the ses­sion. Pos­tures – these aid in de­vel­op­ing and main­tain­ing strength, flex­i­bil­ity and bal­ance. Cool­ing down – the last part of the ses­sion where heart rate is re­stored and you should feel calm and re­laxed.
