“Because it’s uncomfortable being pregnant you know. You’re carrying an eight pound bowling ball in the front of your body. So with yoga it actually helps stretch those muscles, relieve the back pain, remove the lower back pain,” says Jessica Taylor.
“I think yoga for exercise can be very helpful for all patients working that core muscle and then just building flexibility and strength, I think overall is always a good thing,”says Angela Langer.
Dr. Langer says that if you have a normal pregnancy you can do any type of exercise up until you give birth. She also says that there are some exercise classes you should not do while pregnant and those are hot yoga, going into steam rooms, or skiing.
