Iyengar yoga has deep-rooted traditions to the yoga sutras (written over 2500 years ago). There is an emphasis on the use of props to ensure precision and alignment, and classes can be easily tailored to all ages and all fitness types.
If youâ€™ve never practiced yoga before, pregnancy is a wonderful time to start. Pre-natal yoga is a great way to reduce the physical discomforts (such as lower-back-pain and fatigue), and emotional strains (such as fear and anxiety) of pregnancy.
With a heavy focus on relaxation breathing, it has been scientifically proven that many movements practiced during pregnancy yoga actually encourage the baby to be in a healthy position for birth.
Ultimately, pre-natal yoga provides you with the tools to help aid you pregnancy â€“ including developing skills in breathing, movement and relaxation.
