Yoga in pregnancy
Yoga is an ancient practice that has its roots in the Hindu religion. The term Yoga derives from the Sanskrit verb “Yuj”, which describes the action of yoking, for example yoking the oxen, and therefore in this sense join.
In fact, Yoga is a complex system whose purpose is to lead those who practice it to join with the Prana, the vital energy, impalpable and subtle that according to Hinduism permeates all living matter and that it is possible to channel into one’s body through the Pranayama, the rhythmic breathing control technique which is one of the eight cornerstones of this technique.
To carry out yoga correctly and comfortably even during pregnancy, it is important to have everything you need: a comfortable and adequate mat is certainly the indispensable accessory to carry out this ancient discipline.
