Exercising in a smart way (i.e. without depleting your body reserves) before and during pregnancy can help you a lot in preparation for a very demanding period of your life. It also helps increasing vitality, relaxing the body and mind, and creating some peaceful space for yourself and your future baby.
Yoga therapy can be of great help especially in the following cases:
- if you have recently stopped taking birth control pills and are trying to get back to natural hormonal balance;
- if there is a disorder that needs to be fixed before conception can take place (provided movement therapy is allowed by your healthcare provider) or if there is an unknown cause that prevents you from conception;
- if you are older than 35, the chances to conceive are statistically lower than when you are younger, so any additional help to your reproductive system is good;
- if you are seeking for an efficient method to reduce stress, relax, arrive in your own body and feel good in it.
Who is this course for?
