Yoga for Pregnancy


Mantras formed the vital tool in concretizing the desires of everyone in tune with Dharma; to establish health, harmony and happiness at the individual, family and social levels have always been the goal of Mantra Sastra; to work in tune with nature which we today call ecology, to promote love and harmony in society and to harness the powers of nature and individuals to not only improve the comfort levels but also to maintain health of one and all which we badly lack today.

The right intonations, emphasis on the clarity of pronunciation, ragas or melody, if any, help to produce resonance. Every letter brings resonance in a particular party of the body, chanting the whole Mantra generates a particular resonance pattern, the resonant wave moving from part to part in the body. Recognition of these movement and the associated resonance pattern in the physical body produces very special effects on the body - prana - mind - emotions - intellect combine. There is shaping, molding and transformation of each and every cell in our body, prana, mind and emotions. The chants of the Mantras, with their associated patterns of resonance, produce the special effect and result for which the mantra was designed and developed by our Tantric experts and yoga masters.

Squatting

It is also called Malasana - garland pose 

Squatting regularly helps to increase the mobility of your pelvic and hip joints. When you squat, the extensor muscles in the back, buttocks and pelvic floor lengthen and relax, while the muscles in front of your body shorten or contract. In this position, your pelvic floor relaxes and the blood supply to the whole pelvic area improves. The perineal tissues relax and can stretch evenly when you squat, so regular practice may help to prevent tearing in the final stages of the birth.

Squatting is a perfectly natural sitting and resting position which every toddler uses instinctively before standing and walking.

Caution : If your baby is in the breech position after 34 weeks, stop squatting altogether as you do not want to encourage the buttocks to engage.

Avoid full squatting if you have had a cervical stitch (Shirodkar Suture) or if you have hemorrhoids or vulvae varicosities, severe or painful varicose veins in your legs.

However, the squatting exercise using a stool under your buttocks for support or squatting astride a bolster or large rolled-up cushion, can be practiced safely provided it does not cause you any pain or discomfort.

Full squatting for a short period of time is not harmful to varicose veins in the legs unless they hurt in this position.
