Are you doing Yoga for Pregnancy?

There is some specific Yoga for pregnant women. During the pregnancy, you can do those these Yoga Pranayama and Asana. Is there any who do Yoga here?

I didn't do yoga but know that there are classes and videos directed at the pregnant woman to do it.  I walked a lot and lifted light weights when pregnant.

Yes, doing yoga during pregnancy will be beneficial for both the mother and the baby. It will help to relax and provides physical needs of pregnancy, birth, and labor. However, while doing yoga you must take care that yoga does not cause any harm to your pregnancy. Here are some Yoga asanas for your pregnancy.

For first trimester – Tadasana, Majariasana, Uttanasana, Shavasana
For second trimester – Virbhadrasana, Meru Aksharshanasan, Utthanasan, Vajrasan
For third trimester – Pranayam, Utkatasana, Trikonasana

It has been seen that yoga is safe for a pregnant woman however before starting a prenatal yoga you must consult with your doctor.

Ya, speak to your doctor but it is such a gentle exercise, would think most can do it.  Do you maintain weight with yoga?

Hello all.  I hope your pregnancies are going well.  Exercise during pregnancy if your doctor has said okay to this is an excellent idea.  Not only does it help keep our body healthy, it helps keep our mind centered as well.  Here is an article for those wanting to exercise during pregnancy. https://www.medhelp.org/pregnancy-health/articles/Pregnancy-Fitness-Exercises-for-Beginners/2220.

Here is a general article on benefits of exercising during pregnancy. https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/pregnancy-week-by-week/in-depth/pregnancy-and-exercise/art-20046896
