During pregnancy, women are limited within their range of motion due to adjusted posture, strain and stress on joints and ligaments. Aqua Natal Yoga is an ideal form of exercise to alleviate these stresses on the pregnant body and aid in fluid movement, relaxation and controlled breathing.
The buoyancy provided by water removes stress on the joints and provides support for the muscles. Relaxation is the main focal point in yoga other than building flexibility and stability. Water expands the benefits of yoga relaxation.
The added benefits from the sensation of weightlessness provided by the water and the use of the standard yoga poses aids in relaxation and provides useful techniques designed for pregnant women. Aqua Natal Yoga can be practiced from 14 weeks until the birth of your baby.
Communication with other pregnant mothers provides a real, bonding experience with the added advice on birthing tips from your qualified instructor. All of this adds to a relaxing and supportive environment, making it a really pleasant and empowering experience. Aqua Natal Yoga is one of the most beneficial and least stressful methods of exercise while you are pregnant.
