In honor of National Yoga Month, we are highlighting Beaumont’s prenatal yoga program, Yoga Moms.
If you’re expecting a baby, prenatal yoga can be a great way to relax, stay fit and prepare for birth. Studies have suggested that prenatal yoga may:
- Improve sleep
- Reduce stress
- Decrease swelling
- Encourage socialization and support with other expectant moms
- Increase strength and flexibility of the muscles needed for birth
- Decrease low back pain, nausea, headaches and shortness of breath
- Decrease the risk of pregnancy induced hypertension
Beaumont’s Community Health Education Department offers Yoga Moms at SOLA Life and Fitness in Rochester Hills and the Beverly Hills Club in Southfield. The six-week class series is taught by certified yoga instructors. Classes include breathing, gentle stretching, postures and relaxation. The class is recommended for any stage of pregnancy, with physician approval.
