Did you take yoga while pregnant?

And was it with a group of pregnant women or just a regular yoga class? Because I'm taking a regular yoga class and I'm wondering if it's safe or if I should take one that's specifically designed for pregnant women?

  • I wasn't living where I could take any formal classes when I was pregnant. But I'd already been doing it for a number of years by that time so I didn't need the classes to be able to do a practice on my own.

    Most of the postures should be fine, but I'd check with your instructor on their opinion. It's been so long I can't remember, I do know that if a woman is on her period, she should not do any of the inverted moves.

  • There is a Yogo Workout video designed specifically for pregnant women. The lady in the video has several yoga videos out and she made one while she was pregnant.

    You can look at the detailed info on this video on my website.
