Postpartum yoga is specially designed for new moms to exercise and regain their body shape.
Yoga is a system that helps the body reach its potential by raising awareness. Yoga has been practised for thousands of years, from 300 BC to the present day. It is a slow, comfortable practice that improves the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the body, bringing the mind and spirit into harmony.
Our postpartum yoga program is specially designed to help new moms exercise and get back into shape. The program not only helps to restore body and shape but also helps to regulate mental anxiety through yoga breathing and meditation, helping mothers to regain their physical and mental health.
After pregnancy and childbirth, body shape and physique change drastically. At this time you will find that many yoga poses become easier to perform. In addition, a moderate postnatal yoga practice can also help new moms to recover. The specific asanas, regular breathing and calming meditation in postpartum yoga practices can also help to soothe psychological anxiety.
Postpartum yoga helps to strengthen the elasticity of the pubic muscles, promotes uterine contraction by restoring skin tone, prevents the uterus, bladder and vagina from dropping, and facilitates the return of the uterus to its normal position. The program also improves blood circulation, reduces body fat accumulation and restores skin tone, which helps new mothers to return to their prenatal body shape.
Postpartum yoga can also improve poor posture caused by physiological changes. Due to the physiological changes that occur during pregnancy, women tend to develop poor posture, such as shifting the body’s centre of gravity forward, convex cervical vertebrae, pulling the shoulders forward, tilting the pelvis forward and shifting the centre of gravity to the heels. Carrying a baby after childbirth also tends to shift the body’s weight forward, thus causing postnatal neck, back, pelvis and heel pain.
Women are prone to lower limb edema during pregnancy. Yoga practice helps to improve blood flow and metabolism, which in turn improves leg edema and varicose veins due to fetal compression of the inferior vena cava. Postpartum yoga will also reduce body fat accumulation while improving blood circulation.
Mothers often feel a loss of fitness and a lack of energy after giving birth. This is due to the fact that pregnancy and childbirth consume a lot of energy and nutrients, resulting in nutritional deficiencies in postnatal mothers. Proper postnatal yoga practice helps to restore physical fitness and improve absorption and metabolism, among other things.
Yoga can cut off the excess fat on the arms through moderate stretching and also helps to strengthen the arm muscles. Postnatal mothers usually spend a lot of time holding their babies, without strong muscles, arms are more likely to feel painful and sore. Postpartum yoga helps to strengthen arm muscles.
The abdominal musculature tends to loosen and weaken after childbirth. Postpartum yoga training helps to restore the abdominal and pelvic muscles, enhance the support of the organs in the pelvis and effectively prevent pressure incontinence.
