We know a healthy pregnancy is all about a healthy baby but it’s all about the mother’s journey! From emotional to mental to physical changes, you’re experiencing them all - we can totally imagine the whirlwind you’re going through…
And that’s why it’s super important to take care of one’s physical health through not just eating right, and having the best vitamins, but also through exercise such as yoga. Don’t worry, we’re not telling you to do head stands! Pre-natal Yoga is known for its delicate yet strengthening approach, and when taught right, can make your pregnancy a whole lot easier. An invaluable tool during pregnancy, yoga helps in making you flexible and relaxed.
Wondering how to choose which classes to go for? Here are our picks!
Rolly’s Yoga Art, Powai
Founded by Rolly Sapru, the pre-natal yoga classes in Mumbai are based on a form of Ashtanga yoga that she has created. A certified Lamaza and CAPPA Childbirth educator, her classes are quite popular.
Top Tip :
During yoga, the most important to keep in mind is comfort. Are you comfortable doing the poses? Is your maternity wear allowing you freedom of movement? Opt for fitted track pants, that support you, such as the All-Rounder Track Pants. The belly band holds your pregnancy bump like a cocoon!
Dr Anu’s Pregnancy Yoga, Bandra
Focusing on the mother and baby through and through pregnancy, Dr Anu offers a range of services. From her pre-natal yoga classes to labour and delivery sessions to diet and nutrition during pregnancy to breast-feeding support, and ending in post-natal yoga in Mumbai, this is a great space to really grow your mind, body and soul during pregnancy.
Navroop Yoga, At Home
Navroop Yoga conducts pregnancy yoga classes in the comfort of your home. Based out of Marine Lines, they specialise in pre-natal yoga, mindfulness, hatha yoga and vinyasa yoga.
Top Tip :
Just because you’re headed for pre-natal yoga, doesn’t mean you accept that loose-tshirt-sad-maternity-clothes life. Fitted pants that still allow you to move and breathe through the day are great to wear to yoga and then out to brunch - it’s all about #athleisure. We’ve got our eyes on the Bump Comfy Pants - does what it says on the cover!
