QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
I am pregnant, when can I begin?
– You can join a prenatal yoga class when you are 12 weeks pregnant and until the 40th week plus
Sometimes I experience pain in my lower back; does this mean I can’t participate?
– You are still welcome to join us as the poses are geared towards the changes your body goes through during during pregnancy.
I have swollen legs and hands; will this be a hindrance?
There will be plenty of inspiration for exercises you can do at home, which also helps to relieve the pressure of water in the legs and arms.
I am so tired! Will yoga help me, even though I’d rather stay in bed?
In my experience both mother and baby benefit from exercise during the pregnancy. It helps you to gain strength, feel peaceful, and truly connect with your breathing, but it is also important to listen to your body, and know when to take a break.
I am past my due date. Can I still come to yoga?
You can do yoga until week 40+, but just remember to listen to your body and baby along the way.
Can I use what I have learned from yoga when I am in in labor and after I have given birth?
In my experience, the body remembers the yoga exercises and the breathing that you have done throughout your pregnancy.
