The Psychological Benefits of Yoga for Pregnant Women

Another important effect of prenatal yoga is evidenced in reduced maternal anxiety and depressive symptoms (Prenatal Yoga for Depression) as well as stress management.

Over the course of pregnancy, women experience significant shifts in the reproductive hormones estrogen and progesterone, leaving women feeling emotionally taxed. The connection of breath with movement, along with activation of the PSNS via deep breathing, helps to shift perspective and step out of negative mind states. Stepping onto the mat and moving through a practice allows us to move away from the sometimes overly critical or judgmental mind and creates an opportunity to drop into our seat of intuition.
