Prenatal yoga can be the key to a happy, healthy pregnancy, in terms of both your physical and mental health. It strengthens the pelvic floor, hip and abdominal core muscles, which better prepares you for labour, and helps deal with common pregnancy complaints like lower back pain, headaches and nausea. Yogic methods of deep breathing and mindfulness can calm your pregnancy-related stress and worries, and deepen your connection with your baby. This easy yoga flow can be the perfect way to boost your mood and feel energised, especially if you are in your second or third trimester.

 

Make sure to consult your general physician or gynaecologist before you attempt any of these exercises during pregnancy.
