Prenatal Yoga

prenatal yoga lyon

Several studies have proven that practicing yoga during pregnancy is effective in alleviating labor pains and improving birth outcome. From a study conducted by Chethana Bolanthakodi et al, results showed that among pregnant women, those who did yoga had:

  • normal vaginal deliveries and less caesarean sections
  • shorter first stage of labor
  • better pain tolerance
  • higher comfort in Postpartum
  • The number of low birth weight babies was also significantly less.

I am here to guide you through the journey of pregnancy beginning with your second trimester, and to help you prepare physically and mentally for the powerful transition of childbirth and motherhood.

Prenatal yoga is an adapted Vinyasa Yoga practice for the needs of pregnant women. It is a practice that works with the pregnant body without sacrificing the intensity that you need to prepare for childbirth. This unique approach to prenatal yoga gives pregnant women the opportunity to safely remain active and challenged in their vinyasa practice.

The strengthening that occurs in this Prenatal Yoga practice prepares the necessary muscles for labor and childbirth, often resulting in shorter labor, less pain, and fewer interventions, including a decrease in the need for Cesarean sections. Learning to link breath and movements in a constant flow greatly increases the ability for women to work with their bodies, increasing the likelihood of a more natural and joyous birth experience.
