Pregnancy is one of the most delicate and important periods of a woman’s life. She has to do everything keeping in mind about her baby. She is supposed to stay happy, healthy, active and fit. Of course to stay healthy she cannot do her regular jogs and intensive gym workout. So what is the best way to stay fit, healthy and active during pregnancy? Yogasana. That is the best answer. Yogasana is not only an exercise it is a therapy, it helps to calm you down, to soothe you, it treats you (not that you are unwell) it also regulates your mood swings (one of the common problems with pregnant women) It also alleviates other pregnancy related problems like morning sickness and nausea, while you can always use home remedies like ginger tea, triphala juice, green tea, etc, but remember that while these are remedies, yogasana is a prevention. So if you are willing to be happy, anxiety-free, healthy, active and fit and give your baby a better environment to breath, roll out your yoga mat in your balcony, garden or just any corner of the house and start the healing process.
