Pregnancy yoga is safe to practice from 14 weeks, however if you have any concerns about your health, always consult your doctor or midwife before beginning your yoga classes.

 

Pregnancy yoga can have many benefits for expectant mums:

 3. Support your posture by strengthening and toning muscles of the legs, shoulders, whole back. Good posture helps to avoid pains and strains during pregnancy.

 4. Prenatal yoga can help bring back flexibility and comfort of the hips, increases the strength and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth.
