Yes, in most cases and if taught in the right way. The YogaYin Pregnancy Yoga DVD is specifically designed for pregnant women and completely avoids poses that are not safe – particularly those that cut off blood flow to your baby. Poses such as close twists, advanced backbends, total inversions (where the body is upside down) can be risky.
The YogaYin Pregnancy DVD has been created using flowing gentle postures so it is safe for any stage of pregnancy – whether first, second or third trimester. However, if you are in your first trimester, or have experienced complications with this pregnancy or a previous one, it may be best to leave prenatal Yoga until your second trimester, just to be completely safe.
Of course you should always check with your health practitioner before commencing any new exercise program.
