Prenatal yoga with Jutta Lecklin

Do you want to prevent typical pregnancy problems? Do you want to prepare your mind and body for the upcoming birth? Are you wondering how to practice safely during your pregnancy?

You have probably heard of a wide range of ailments typical of pregnancy, such as back and pelvic pain, strain on the pelvic floor, and various imbalances in the body. You propably know that exercising during pregnancy is very important, but you may feel uncertain about what kind of exercises are appropriate and safe to do with a growing belly. It is also very natural to wonder about and want to find suitable ways to train your mind and body for the upcoming birth.

These are all very typical thoughts during pregnancy, for which prenatal yoga is an excellent solution.

Prenatal yoga is a gentle way to prepare your body and mind for childbirth

The word “yoga” is Sanskrit and means connection. During yoga practice, the body, mind and breath are connected. Many studies have shown that practicing yoga during pregnancy can help to achieve a wide range of benefits for the mother’s body and mind while it can also support a successful childbirth.

During pregnancy, yoga can help to reduce back and pelvic pains, strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and body balance. Studies on prenatal yoga support the positive effects of yoga on the mind, e.g. through reduced stress, depression, and anxiety. Maternal relaxation and lower stress levels also reduce fetal exposure to stress hormones.

It is really important to learn to breathe deeply as well as to learn ways that can help you to relax between contractions. The various yogic breathing techniques can help to deal with pain and save strength during childbirth. Indeed, pregnancy yoga has been combined in studies with faster and more painless childbirth and a reduced risk of complications during childbirth.

Online video exercises can be done conveniently when and where it suits you best

Prenatal yoga courses have been a popular way to exercise during pregnancy and prepare for childbirth for decades. Traditionally, prenatal yoga classes have been physically organized in yoga studios, which always requires a commitment to a specific schedule and travel on site. With a growing belly, walking often becomes difficult and even painful, that is why online video coaching is necessary and convenient option for many pregnant mothers. With online training, you can practice exactly where it suits you best – in your own living room, for example – and exactly at the moment that best suits into your busy daily life.

How is this different from other prenatal courses and coaching?

Prenatal Yoga with Jutta Lecklin is a prenatal yoga course that you can do completely online.

Jutta’s guidance is not about performing, instead the exercise is approached through gentleness and listening to your own body. In addition to videos, the coaching program provides solutions and tips for building your own weekly plan, but the expecting mother is encouraged to move forward at her own pace and in a way that she can appreciate her own needs.

Unlike many other pregnancy exercises, prenatal yoga focuses not only on the physical side of the exercise, but holistically including body, mind and breathwork. In addition to effectively but gently strengthening, flexing, and balancing yoga postures and sequences, online coaching also includes breathing, meditation, and relaxation exercises that remove stress and prepare your mind to relax during the childbirth.

Pregnancy yoga takes into account the needs of a changing body

Pregnancy affects the body in many ways and for this reason many physical requirements must be taken into account during exercise during pregnancy. Among other things, hormones that increase joint looseness, uterine oxygen supply, and a growing abdomen place restrictions on the movement of the expectant mother and the yoga asanas used in the exercise.

For more experienced yoga practitioners, a big challenge during their pregnancy is curbing the pace and challenges of their practice. During your pregnancy, it is important to take time to listen to your own feelings so that you can identify what is good for yourself and for your baby.

Prenatal yoga takes into account the special needs of the expectant mother and advises on safe practice.

When I was expecting my first child, I did yoga throughout almost the whole pregnancy. After the initial nausea had passed, yoga helped me in many ways: e.g. my digestion worked great, I slept deeply, and my lower-back pains subsided. I believe that also by baby has benefited in many ways from my yoga practice - e.g. she has slept very well. I wish that as many mothers and babies as possible will benefit from my yoga classes and meditations offered in this course.
