Prenatal yoga is a specific style of yoga which adapts postures and sequences to serve pregnant folks. While carrying a child in utero, pregnant bodies are shifting, moving, and growing in unique ways. As the body makes space for and nourishes the growing fetus, prenatal yoga can be an immensely helpful practice to alleviate aches and pains, strengthen key muscle groups, and reduce stress and anxiety. San Diego Yoga News is lucky enough to have two San Diego prenatal yoga teachers who are experienced in supporting pregnant yogis contribute to this post!
