A few benefits of Prenatal Yoga:

Relieves tension of lower back, hips, chest, upper back, neck and shoulders

As your baby grows, more stress is put upon these specific muscle groups in our bodies. We tend to have more of a lower back curve due to the increased size of your belly. Your hips get tighter due to the added pressure of the baby’s weight in your belly. As your breasts increase in size, your upper back and chest have more tension, along with your neck and shoulders.

Increases circulation

Circulation is enhanced within your joints and your muscles are elongated during practice. Upon circulation of the blood within your bodies, swelling is decreased, creating a healthy environment for a thriving baby.


Your balance is challenged physically as the baby grows within your body. As you try to focus on holding and breathing through each yoga pose, we are able to fine tune our balance, physically and emotionally.

Physical strength

Yoga offers physical strength and stamina in areas that are helpful during the late stages of pregnancy as well as birth; such as the shoulders, hips, legs and back.

Decreased swelling

The physical postures combined with the deep breathing in yoga increase your circulation. As circulation of your blood is increased, swelling and inflammation is decreased.

A few benefits of Yoga for everyone:

Improved flexibility and range of motion

One of the most obvious benefits of yoga is improved flexibility. As you age, Yoga can help to maintain flexibility and joint range of motion. This in turn, helps to maintain independent living as you age.

Improved Balance

A regular yoga practice increases the ability to feel what your body is doing. By being aware of what your body is doing you can improve your balance. Better balance can lead to fewer injuries.

Prevents cartilage and joint breakdown

Each yoga practice can take your joints through their full range of motion. This can help with degenerative arthritis by moving the areas that are not usually used. Joint cartilage is like a sponge. The cartilage receives fresh nutrients when the fluid is squeezed out and a brand new supply can be soaked up.

Improved sleep patterns

Yoga may help you sleep better. The breathing techniques and the gentle stretching of a yoga class may also help you to feel more relaxed after a yoga class.

Helps you focus

An important part of a good yoga practice is being able to listen to your body. By focusing on your body during a yoga practice you will be able to keep yourself from over exerting yourself.

Reduced blood pressure

Yoga has been known to help lower blood pressure and slow the heart rate. A slower heart rate can benefit people with high blood pressure or heart disease. Even yoga exercises that don't get your heart rate up can improve cardiovascular conditioning.
