Despite misinformation indicating otherwise, exercise remains an essential part of any healthy pregnancy of an active woman. But as your baby continues to grow, you may notice your traditional Zumba or Spin routine becoming more and more inaccessible. Your body is still plenty capable of regular exercise, but some positions just aren't going to be comfortable enough to remain a part of your usual class lineup. It's time to mix things up a bit, while still ensuring that those gym visits remain as enjoyable as ever.
One of the easiest ways to accomplish such a seemingly impossible endeavor? Set aside a little time for prenatal yoga at Serenity Yoga. In addition to the traditional benefits of yoga, these prenatal stretch sequences allow some release from the usual discomforts associated with pregnancy.
If you're new to the prenatal variation on classic yoga, you might be a little worried about attending your very first session. But you'll quickly find that there is really no reason to feel stressed out. At Serenity Yoga in San Diego, we will make you feel comfortable every step of the way and ensure that you and your baby are safe and serene. This type of exercise is relaxing, yet, you'll be surprised just how motivated you are to push yourself. It helps to arrive at one of our classes knowing the basics surrounding expected yoga benefits and outcomes, as well as the standard exercise routine. Here are some of the things you can expect from this classic yoga offering at Serenity Yoga in San Diego:
Pregnant women often experience increased stiffness in the neck, back, and legs. This annoying sensation can be minimized with the inclusion of the occasional stretch break in your daily routine. As a prenatal yogi, you'll learn a vast stretch routine that allows you to comfortably expand your overall range of motion. One of the certified instructors at Serenity Yoga will help you find some stretches that increase your mobility and decrease any current discomfort you may feel -- particularly in your back.
For many pregnant women, pregnancy discomfort is compounded by stressors related to work and family. All this stress can have a negative impact on your baby's prenatal development. In order to clear away the mental chatter, your Serenity Yoga instructor will guide you through a series of breathing exercises. You'll be asked to engage in deep breathing, utilizing the diaphragm. It's amazing how quickly this exercise reduces your stress load!
Whether you're a lifelong yogi or completely new to this exciting form of exercise, you stand to benefit from attending a yoga class aimed specifically at pregnant women. As long as your physician believes that physical activity is safe for you, our local yoga classes can do worlds of good for your mental and physical state. Give it a try and experience the immediate skyrocketing of your overall health and well being!
I have benefited tremendously from yoga sessions with Anderson.
