Have you been feeling the extra weight your pregnant body is carrying in all of the wrong ways? Are you experiencing tightness, aches, and pains? Practicing prenatal yoga can help your body release its tension and realign. Committing to these classes can help you heal your body’s aches now and prepare it for childbirth.
Researchers report that prenatal yoga can also help reduce your stress, improve the flexibility and strength of muscles used in childbirth, reduce your risk of preterm labor and hypertension, decrease pain in your lower back, and even reduce your nausea and headaches.
You may be concerned that your changing body will not be able to handle a yoga class, but prenatal classes are designed for women just like you. They focus on breathing, mixing gentle stretching with moving into certain postures that will realign and relax your body.
One Body Studios offers prenatal yoga classes on Tuesdays at 9:00 a.m. and Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. Contact our studio, located in La Habra, for more information about these classes. We also offer yoga, Pilates, and dance classes so you can meet all of your prenatal and postnatal health goals this year.
