(0 reviews)

You do need to take a few precautions before starting yoga during pregnancy . The first and foremost is getting an approval from your doctor.

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

Yoga may not be safe if you have health problems such as heart diseases or had a miscarriage earlier, or are at an increased risk of premature delivery . Moreover, it is very important to practice yoga during pregnancy under a prenatal yoga trainer or an instructor to do safe yogasanas.

Precautions to take include:

While practicing Yoga during pregnancy, call or visit your doctor immediately if you experience any pain, dizziness, headache, breathing difficulty, vaginal bleeding or if you feel that your baby’s movements have reduced.

Not to overdo it. Pay attention to your body. If you feel any discomfort, STOP!! You will know that you are pushing yourself too hard if you are not able to speak normally while you are doing yoga.
Avoiding poses that are beyond your level of comfort or stretch your muscles too much.
Drinking lots of water to keep yourself hydrated.
Practicing in a well-ventilated room to avoid overheating.
