Yoga during pregnancy can relieve stress and anxiety, increase strength, and prepare you for labor. Be it your first or last trimester, its completely safe to practice yoga as it has its own benefits. For people with myths about being physically active with the baby need to stop worrying, as doctors do advise women to exercise during pregnancy, as it is not only good for their birthing experience, but keeps mothers healthy and energetic.
However, while some poses can be quite rewarding, others can have the opposite effect. Pushing to the point of exhaustion may boost athletic performance, but when you’re pregnant, it can reduce blood flow to your uterus. If you find yourself panting too much during the practice, dear preggy, know that you’re pushing way too hard!
