Meditation During Pregnancy
Meditation relaxes your mind and eliminates feelings of restlessness. Meditation improves your concentration and creates an awareness about the power of your body.
Meditation can be safely practiced in all stages of pregnancy, even the last trimester when the growing body may hinder you from completing asanas or other exercises.
While you can practice meditation throughout your pregnancy, it is best to follow a prenatal yoga class to choose the postures and breathing techniques most suited to relax your growing body without straining your back or abdominal muscles. The type of meditation you prefer may depend on your personal beliefs and the time available.
