Pregnant and thinking about prenatal yoga? Check out Marlynn Wei’s article, Yoga in Pregnancy: Many poses are safer than once thought regarding a “study, published recently in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology, provides encouraging results that many yoga poses can be safe even during late stages of pregnancy.”
“This study suggests that yoga can be safe during late pregnancy and adds to the growing scientific evidence that yoga is a helpful, safe tool to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression throughout pregnancy.”
“Some forms of yoga done in extreme heat, like Bikram yoga, where the room can be up to 105 degrees Fahrenheit, are not recommended during pregnancy.”
If you’re pregnant and you might want to try yoga, discuss all exercise options with your health care team.
