Yoga Q & A

What is yoga?

Yoga is both a way of life and practice used to improve physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental health. With roots in India, yoga is an ancient practice that has helped people raise their quality of life for over 5,000 years.

For many, yoga is a way of life that helps them manage every aspect of their life in a more balanced and enriched way. For many others, yoga is one of many valuable tools that helps them strengthen and relax their body and mind.

Anyone of any age or fitness level can benefit from yoga classes at Bella Vita Holistic Health, including pregnant women and those who are trying to conceive. Yoga may be especially useful when used in combination with other holistic treatments, including massage therapy, acupuncture, and Reiki.

How can yoga improve fertility?

Yoga is a particularly effective method of reducing and managing stress, which is one of the many factors that contribute to infertility. For example, it reduces cortisol — the stress hormone — which is a factor in infertility and miscarriage. Going through fertility treatment is incredibly stressful, and regular yoga practice can help you reduce those negative feelings that get in the way of relaxation. 

It also strengthens your body and improves circulation and the flow of energy through your body. Certain poses and sequences focus on your pelvic muscles and organs, including your reproductive organs. 

Additionally, yoga is an excellent way to keep your body strong, supple, and healthy. It can be an important part of an overall wellness plan to make your body as healthy and hospitable as possible for a new life. 

What are the benefits of prenatal yoga?

According to a study published in Obstetrics & Gynecology, many yoga poses are safe and beneficial for mother and baby during pregnancy.

Along with all the previously mentioned benefits of yoga, prenatal yoga also:

  • Improves breathing and shortness of breath
  • Strengthens muscles used for delivery
  • Supports pain control during labor
  • Promotes postpartum healing
  • Relieves muscle, tendon, and ligament pain
  • Relieves pregnancy-induced back pain
  • Relieves nausea and headaches

Under the direction of an OB/GYN, yoga is safe and effective and benefits you during pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum recovery.
