Prenatal Yoga explained by Tanny Bhatt (Bhattacharjee)
Pregnancy is the most out of the world feeling and experience altogether.
The pregnancy period of nine months is the most delicate phase for would-be moms. From starting months to the delivery time, a lot of hormonal and emotional changes occur, which should be dealt with accordingly.
Prenatal Yoga is the tool that makes the journey convenient and healthy for both of the lives.
What is Prenatal Yoga?
We are all aware of Yoga, a physical exercise that includes Postures, Asanas, and Meditation to make your body and mind, healthy and peaceful.
Prenatal Yoga is the unique form of physical exercise designed for pregnant women to help them deal with several physical issues such as breathing problems, the flexibility of muscles, backache, etc. It helps to promote the baby’s health and prepare a woman for labor.
Why prenatal Yoga over regular Yoga in pregnancy?
There is a minor difference in regular and prenatal Yoga. In yoga, poses are a bit complicated and hard for the body, but in the prenatal setting, all poses are designed as per different trimesters and bearing capacity of the student. Poses are a bit balanced in prenatal. Prenatal yoga practices help in dealing with mush, cramp, and muscle tightness. You can start Prenatal Yoga from the 1st Trimester itself with a doctor’s recommendation.
