Yoga is one of the best exercises for pregnant women. It strengthens you while being gentle on the joints, makes you more in tune with your body, and is extremely scalable in terms of intensity.
As long as your doctor gives the green light to exercise, even those without yoga experience can give it a shot.
A good way to get started is to join a prenatal yoga class, which is available at some yoga studios and gyms in Singapore. If it’s your first time doing yoga, avoid attempting the poses without professional supervision.
If you’ve been practising yoga for some time, bear in mind that you’ll need to make some adjustments to your routine. After all, your body is busy growing a baby and you will experience many physical changes in the months to come.
