Washington: Yoga, a low-impact fitness alternative, allows pregnant women to continue an exercise regimen without straining their heart or harming the baby. The rewards of basic yoga outweigh the potential physical risks, as long as you take caution and perform the exercises in moderation according to your flexibility level, said the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS).
"One of the best aspects of yoga is being in control of your body and having the ability to do each movement at your own pace," said Rohde. To reduce yoga-related injuries, the AAOS recommends that pregnant women should avoid "Bikram" or "hot" yoga, which can raise your (and the baby`s) body temperature too high. IANS
