Prenatal Yoga includes sequences and yoga postures that especially and specifically benefit and strengthen women's bodies and minds in the transformative experience of pregnancy. Physical and mental stamina, strength and stability is developed through the mindful practice of yoga postures.  Breathing exercises and relaxation techniques are  taught to help calm the nerves through the experience of pregnancy, birth, postpartum healing and beyond.  The Iyengar method of teaching includes demonstration with explanations of what to do in the postures, and individualized correction and adjustment.   Supporting these postures with props (such as bolster, blankets, ropes, belts, blocks, wall) help with opening the hips and the relaxation of the groins (upper inner thighs) which allows the pelvis to have more space, and to facilitate extension of the spine, which helps make space for the baby, and relieves discomfort and pain for the mother.  Having support allows the pregnant mother to hold postures for longer periods of time allows for rest, more space for breathing, and for the experience of inner peace.
