Yoga for Pregnancy & Delivery
Celebrating God’s Design of a Woman
In God’s infinite wisdom and creativity, He created a woman’s body to grow and nurture life. During pregnancy, delivery, and life postpartum, a woman’s body endures numerous changes both physically and emotionally. Yoga can support these emotional and physical changes in ways that prepare women for the birth of their baby and support them throughout the early days of motherhood. Whether you have a heart for serving mothers or are looking to better your own practice during pregnancy, Holy Yoga’s Pre/Postnatal Training is a beautiful course that discovers what the body needs most during pregnancy and labor and explores how yoga can be used to meet those needs.
What is Pre/Postnatal Yoga?
Pre/Postnatal Holy Yoga highlights God’s design for birth and motherhood. This training focuses on the uniqueness of the female body as it relates to the experience of pregnancy, delivery, and motherhood. Practicing yoga throughout pregnancy requires particular accommodations, honoring the integrity and limitations of the female body. This training provides students the tools to journey the delicate stages of pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood with functional movement, spiritual guidance, and emotional support.
“I loved all the material we went through. I loved how it gave me more light on my own pregnancies, and that there are more people “out there” thinking like me. Now I have this down in a very concrete way and I can teach other women about the blessings of their bodies!”

HEALING DIASTASIS RECTI
“During pregnancy our core is stretched to allow for our precious children to grow. Our rectus abdominal muscle, located directly down the front of our core, has two sides to it. These two sides are held together with connective tissue, called the linea alba. Think about this being like glue. However, when the linea alba has too much force placed upon it, the glue stops holding. This means the two sides of the rectus abdominal muscle pull apart, resulting in a diastasis recti. In layman’s terms, this could lead to a weak core, a bulging belly (ever heard of a “mummy tummy”?), back problems, and menstrual or digestive issues.“ Continue reading on the blog
