Prenatal yoga is just yoga, but friendlier and more suitable for pregnant women. They’re led by licensed and trained professionals for the safety of the moms-to-be. 

You can actually start whenever you want to start regardless of how far you are in your pregnancy. When you want to relax and stretch those muscles, start the prenatal yoga sessions!

However, this may not always be the case for high-risk pregnancies. In these cases, mums are advised to get plenty of rest and stay in bed. It is important to consult with your doctor if you have a high-risk pregnancy.

Women who might be considered high-risk include:

  • Underweight or overweight before pregnancy
  • Pregnant with twins or multiples
  • Has other health problems such as diabetes, high-blood pressure, etc.
  • 35 years old and above, and 17 years old and below

What To Bring

  • Water bottle. Hydration is always important. This is to ensure that your heart and other muscles all over your body are hydrated and well-sustained with oxygen.
  • Face towel. Sweating out toxins is good, but it can get annoying and messy. Make sure to bring a face towel you can carry anywhere.
  • Body towel. Practice hygiene by bringing a separate towel for your body.
  • Extra clothes. Staying in sweaty clothes is not good for your health and mood. Always pack an extra pair of clean clothes to change into.
  • Medication and vitamins. There are reasons why you need to take your medication wherever you go. For starters, you will need your medication in case of emergency. Secondly, you may be away from home for more minutes or hours than you thought. Make sure you always include your medications, and vitamins, to things you need to pack in your bag.
  • A treat. Always reward yourself with a simple treat to make the experience more fulfilling!
