In today’s world, staying healthy and fit is something that is given the utmost priority by one and all. We would want to turn to something that might relieve us from the stress that we go through in our day to day life, and Yoga is the way towards that. Yoga has been in practice since ages to attain both physical as well as mental health. Though it is beneficial for the people of all ages, but it has special benefits to offer during pregnancy. Yoga practice during pregnancy, not only helps the healthy growth of the mother and the baby, but also prepares the mother for easy child birth. While practising yoga during pregnancy, there are certain things that should be kept in mind to avoid any unwanted situation to occur. Here we are going to discuss the three common mistakes that many pregnant women commit while doing yoga.
First Mistake : Not knowing the right exercises
There are numerous styles and postures of Yoga which might attract people seeing their final results. Women during pregnancy think that doing any fitness exercise would help them have a healthy and relaxed pregnancy, but the reality is far away from this. There are some exercises which would help you in your condition, and at the same time there are some exercises which might cause you some harm instead of doing good. Hence, before you jump in, know your condition well and then do the yoga exercises which suit more specifically to it. You may achieve physical and mental health. Often people set a goal which is too high for their condition and achieving that is not healthy for their pregnancy. Keep a goal which is achievable, without having to strain your body too much.
Second Mistake: Joining a class in a hurry
The decision that you will be taking a step towards a healthy pregnancy by joining the yoga classes, should not be taken in a hurry. This is one mistake that most women commit, without considering the kind of batches they will be joining, the timings and the other facilities in the yoga center. As a result, many of them discontinue after a few weeks. This is why; you must select a class that suits your condition and requirements. The ideal solution would be to join the beginner level class, with lesser people, so that the yoga trainer can attend to you conveniently.
Third Mistake: Practising under a wrong Guru
Teaching the Yoga techniques is not as simple as it may seem. The teacher has to be an expert and preferable have worked as an aid with a professional Guru. We often do not check the qualification of the trainer and just get enrolled and start practicing under him. Nowadays, anyone who has learnt a few yoga techniques starts claiming himself to be an expert. Doing the Yoga exercises under such armature and inexperienced teacher might not get you the desired results that you had aimed for. So, always find out about the background of your trainer, before you join under him.
Keeping the above discussed points in mind and working according to your requirements and condition would make your pregnancy and the child birth a happy experience.
