Prenatal Yoga Proven Benefits – Yoga for you!

Prenatal Yoga Proven Benefits – Yoga for you in Nederland & Beaumont Texas

pregnancy2yoga

Call Gail Pickens-Barger, Prenatal Yoga Teacher, 409-727-3177 to see of your readiness in taking public beginners yoga classes during your pregnancy.

Research has proven that yoga can:

  • Relieve back pain
  • Induce relaxation and relieve stress
  • Increase stamina
  • Produce healthier babies and mothers
  • By working on breath control exercises, mothers are better able to use their breath to relax during labor.

Please give me a call, Gail Pickens-Barger at 409-727-3177 (leave a message slowly please), so that I can assess your current prenatal yoga status.  This will allow me to assess your current situation.

If you are ready for the public beginner yoga classes — or if you need a few private prenatal sessions prior to coming to class.

Exercising Through Your Pregnancy – A recommended book

Exercising Through Your Pregnancy

Exercising Through Your Pregnancy, by James Clapp, MD.  This is a must-have book if you exercise prior to pregnancy and want to keep up your efforts.  A book to take to your OBGYN, cause some of those guys are still on the bandwagon of “don’t let your heart rate go above 140!”.

Lots of good scientific evidence about continuing to exercise, and starting to exercise while pregnant.

Prenatal Yoga use of Birth Balls in Pregnancy and during Labor




Prenatal Yoga use of Birth Balls in Pregnancy and during Labor.

Here are some excellent resources for you to have on hand and to practice while pregnant, and to use in easing your labor pains.

Birth Balls. Use of Physical Therapy Balls in Maternity Care by Paulina G. (Polly) Perez, R.N.

Great Expectations Pregnancy Program with FitBall by Lisa Westlake (1/2 price on VHS tapes right now), Mother of two, Physiotherapist and Australian Fitness Leader

Carolyne Anthony’s Childbearing series – Using the ball during pregnancy DVD

Exercising during pregnancy with the “Gymnic-Plus” ball. (in Italian and English)

I used these resource to help supplement my prenatal yoga practice, and the prenatal yoga classes that I taught, during my fourth pregnancy in my late forties. Also used the yoga poses on the ball and otherwise during labor to help me through my induced contractions. It works!
