Yoga for pregnant women
Oh my goodness! I think it’s the right expression for what I felt when I knew I was pregnant.
Life is a continuous act of creativity with a million things going on every second. Isn’t it great? Being pregnant is a beautiful act of creativity. It means to be immersed in a creation act where the baby and the mother are part of a team that makes a wonderful journey ending on the delivery.
To be born is an involuntary, wild and beautiful act, where everything we can do is to put consciousness and love, one thing leads to another. Yoga will help us put consciousness in this process. During pregnancy the body will experience changes and processes unknown until now. Also emotions and moods experience changes and yoga for pregnant women help live them with more tranquillity and consciousness. Introducing some time for yoga in our routine means a healthy habit, a time that will allow being in contact with yourself and the baby.
