"I have been practicing yoga for about 5 years. Yoga helped me throughout my pregnancy to make me feel relaxed and less stressed. I feel more comfortable as my body changes with each trimester. It has helped ease my aches and pains, especially back pain and pressure in my hips.

I exercised throughout my pregnancy. I ran, did step aerobics, strength trained and practiced yoga. Over time I had to modify to accommodate my changing body and listen and cut back on my workouts to honor my body when I would feel tired.

I truly believe that being active helped me to have a positive and healthy pregnancy. I was very fortunate to have a healthy pregnancy with few complaints. I attribute my feeling of well being to my yoga practice and exercise routines. Even when I would feel fatigued, getting my body moving made me feel energized.

Keep moving and do what you can. Listen to your body. Enjoy this very special time in your life and embrace the miraculous changes in your body each stage of pregnancy."

IMPORTANT! Before beginning your exercise program, talk with your doctor to make sure you do not have any obstetric or health condition that would limit your activity. Variations and modifications of the postures must take into account the needs and restrictions of the individual. Detailed guidelines are available at The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. We encourage you read through this important and informative resource.
