I'm always surprised how many women who've never tried yoga become devoted students as soon as they fall pregnant! Well, a mother’s instinct is usually right and thousands of women every year enjoy the physical, emotional and spiritual benefits of practicing yoga during this very special time in their lives.
Yoga was an invaluable support during my two pregnancies and births. As well as keeping me free from the pregnancy niggles such as back pain, reflux and swollen ankles, it helped me to prepare mentally for what was to be the biggest adventure of my life!
Importantly, the relaxation and breathing in yoga taught me how to let go. Giving birth and caring for young babies is as much about ‘letting go’ as anything else. Letting go of preconceptions, of old ways of thinking and letting go of the fears and anxieties that all women experience as we make the transition to motherhood.
I would love to see every woman enjoy the benefits of yoga during this magical time of their lives. It helps them to reconnect with their own bodies as well as with their babies. It prepares them for the physical rigours of birth and early motherhood. It connects them with other women going through the same wonderful, challenging and miraculous experiences.
