Maintaining a Healthy Pregnancy
Pregnancy is a time of many changes in a woman’s body. These changes produce both physical and emotional stresses. Yoga, the mind-body system of postures, breathing techniques and meditation may be well suited to maintaining physical and emotional health during pregnancy.
At Women’s Physical Therapy, we are aware of the many stresses and strains on the pregnant woman’s body.
The prenatal yoga is designed by a physical therapist who has extensive practice and training in yoga.
There are many possible benefits of practicing yoga during pregnancy:
- Reducing fluid retention.
- Reducing constipation.
- Increase core muscle strength, including the pelvic floor, abdominal muscles and trunk muscles.
- Improving digestion.
- Improving breathing control.
Prenatal yoga, at Women’s Physical Therapy is personalized for your own capability and closely supervised by a PT. You will not only feel great, but your body will be safe.
