Postpartum Yoga

Postnatal (Postpartum) Yoga

This practice is an ideal form of postpartum exercise as it is gentle and can be adapted to a woman’s changing needs, safe and beneficial even for an absolute beginner. If the mother practices yoga techniques that nourish her, then this only increases her energy and vitality to continue giving back to her child. During the first six weeks or more after childbirth, a woman’s yoga practice should be gentle and nurturing. Pranayama (deep breathing techniques), relaxation and supportive restorative poses will form the core of her practice. There’s no need for mom to rush to the gym or return to her favorite body fit class in an attempt to lose the baby weight. In fact, strength training, if done too early or rigorously, can be counterproductive and contribute to serious injury.. Instead, She can use this opportunity to practice the yogic concept of ahimsa. Ahimsa or non-violence means not only cultivating tenderness towards others but also compassion towards oneself.
