Many studies show that practicing yoga (or engaging in other exercise) can:

  • Improve sleep
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Increase the strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth
  • Decrease lower back pain, nausea, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches and shortness of breath
  • Decrease the risk of preterm labor and pregnancy-induced hypertension

Prenatal yoga can also help you meet and bond with other pregnant women and prepare for the challenges of being a new parent!
