SHANNON'S STORY:

"Practicing yoga during my pregnancy has been relaxing and physically relieving. After a yoga class, my body is no longer stiff and my backaches are gone. I believe the edema has been kept at bay with the regular practice of certain inverted poses, and I also can't help but speculate that the inverted poses have helped keep my blood pressure down. Women tend to worry more about weight during pregnancy when the more important numbers relate to our blood pressure. I have been practicing hip-opening exercises hoping it will ease my birthing experience. After I give birth in mid June, I will have to report back on that one. I highly recommend yoga during pregnancy! "

IMPORTANT! Before beginning your exercise program, talk with your doctor to make sure you do not have any obstetric or health condition that would limit your activity. Variations and modifications of the postures must take into account the needs and restrictions of the individual. Detailed guidelines are available at The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. We encourage you read through this important and informative resource.
