Prenatal yoga offers benefits that reach beyond the physical. While practicing prenatal yoga during pregnancy has been proven to help prepare the body for childbirth, there are also a number of emotional and spiritual benefits. Physically, prenatal yoga strengthens the muscles used in childbirth, stretched the body to enhance flexibility, increases circulation, reduces lower back discomfort and swelling around sensitive joints, and alleviates nausea and other common pregnancy discomforts. Spiritually, the intentional breathing, meditation and inward reflection of yoga provides a deeper sense of awareness of oneself during pregnancy and can nourish the mind and soul.
