YOGA can be a great way to stay energized, relaxed,
and get a bit of a workout in while pregnant or postpartum.
Yoga can help with:
and so much more!
Is yoga safe while pregnant or after baby?
The number one way to know is to ask your care provider!
If they say go ahead, start slow and easy,
just ensure you're not flat on your back or laying on your belly.
Give yourself lots of grace and patience, it can be pretty wild moving your body in new ways!
There are specific classes designed for pregnancy and postpartum too,
so when your looking, just be sure to add those keywords.
Where do I find such classes, you ask?
YouTube and most Yoga studios.
(We've got some great recommendations for the Lafayette, Indiana area if you are interested)
There are also a few great DVDs and books out there.
Prenatal yoga and yoga postpartum can be really amazing for your mind and body,
especially if you're all about the shavasana, like we are!
