Bikram Yoga is Not For Pregnant Women

temperature, could make a pregnant female faint at best. Fainting is not something
that I recommend.

When I was pregnant with my first child in Darwin, Northern Territory Australia where
it is a tropical environment and the heat can be intense, I had the misfortune to faint
in a pizza shop one evening. It was a tiled floor and I went down like a sack of
potatoes. Luckily, I landed on my back and by the time I came around again I was
breathing normally but I had a big bruise on my rump for weeks! And we all had to
eat a cold pizza that night!

Pregnancy calls for women to be a lot more careful than normal simply because (a)
you aren't your 'normal' self at this time due to changes in hormones and body size
and (b) you are carrying another human being who is in the process of being
developed and is in need of everything that your human body can provide to increase
this new life's chances of getting everything in the right place in the right time-frame.
Mothers have to help their unborn and developing babies by not doing anything like
Bikram yoga to take away any nutrients or fluids from this developing human life.

However, if it is possible for you to study and practice some of the breathing
exercises associated with Bikram yoga without doing any of the strenuous exercises
in an over-heated room, these could be beneficial to both you and the baby.

But there are just as good breathing exercises available in other yoga practices that
you can do safely and these would have to be the preferred options at this time of
your life. Besides, it is far more relaxing and enjoyable to be sitting in the shade of a
tree with a warm and gentle breeze softly blowing around you while you take those
deep breaths and stretch those muscles and enjoy your baby's movements as s/he
tries to move with you. If this is done peacefully it can be a great time to bond with
your unborn child. There really is something very special about this time so just enjoy
it.

comfort and improved breathing skills to assist your baby's birth.
Bikram Yoga was developed by a
famous Indian Guru by the name of
Bikram Choudhury and it is based on
using heat, humidity and twenty six
poses to increase flexibility and
muscle strength. It is a great Yoga for
non-pregnant people but it is not safe
for Mums-to-be.

The heat of the room which is usually
around 95-105 degrees centigrade,
poses a serious risk of dehydration to
anyone but to a pregnant woman it is
even more seriously dangerous. The
