Prenatal Yoga

The gym might be a bit much while you're pregnant and you may not feel comfortable doing some of your usual workout routines. However, this does not mean you shouldn't have a healthy outlet to erode some of the stresses of pregnancy. You might consider doing yoga as an alternative way to relax your body and still stay in shape. 

Many women are turning to prenatal yoga to stay fit during their nine month journey. This should be no surprise due to the countless benefits yoga has for women who are expecting. Prenatal yoga, when performed in the correct way, can be a great low impact exercise that both stretches and strengthens the body. Yoga's unique breathing techniques have the ability to decrease fatigue and stress levels as well. Aside from the physical aspects of prenatal yoga, it's an amazing way to meet other expecting moms taking classes also!
