Prenatal Yoga Courses
What is prenatal yoga?Prenatal yoga is getting ground, so much so that it can be recommended by the medical occupation, starting with midwives. It was developed by Bernadette de Gasquet, the medical professional who reinvented the practice of giving birth in the 1980s. If this practice does not make up preparation for giving birth in itself - it can not be part of the 7 reimbursed sessions. By Social Security - it is developing itself as a new important tool at a time when pregnant women are trying to find the secrets to a more natural giving birth and more respectful of their body.
Who is this style of Yoga for?It is a yoga adapted to the advancement of the body of the pregnant lady. We deal with motions around the pelvis, deep muscle strengthening to help the woman to support her pelvic floor and bring her child. In addition to loosening up the stress related to pregnancy, prenatal yoga brings relaxation through breathing. We might compare it to hatha yoga, with a slower pace and adapted postures. During a session, there is constantly a minute of conditioning, breathing, followed by exercises, more tonic postures, then relaxation postures, before relaxation. It works like a timeless course.
How does a prenatal Yoga class happen?During a prenatal yoga session, the exercises used are: softening of the perineum, breathing, stretching to alleviate the body of small conditions and hassles of everyday life (agonizing back, sacrum and hips, heavy legs, etc.) but likewise to release discomfort. crowded areas (chest and breathing difficulties).
What are the benefits of prenatal yoga?First of all, this enables the child to be better oxygenated. During contractions, good breathing relaxation will reduce the length of the contractions, and therefore the period during which the child's oxygenation is compromised. The mother's relaxation is much better and her go back to calm is easier. At the time of childbirth, Bernadette de Gasquet suggests a specific breathing strategy: for the woman it is a question of pressing while exhaling and not by blocking. "This allows him to push more efficiently on the child and to 'unmold' him without straining the whole uterus. The perineum is less damaged. Postpartum healing and subsequent repositioning of the organs will be all the more simpler.Yoga classes also permit the young mom to gain back confidence in her body, and in her capability to carry a pregnancy to term. More self-confident, physically soothed, she is much better able to forge a quality relationship with the child and to get involved more actively in his birth.
