Yoga is safe for pregnant women, as long as they approach the activity with reasonable caution and moderation, experts say.


"Women who are expecting can benefit greatly from exercise, especially yoga -- they just need to be aware of their limitations," orthopaedic surgeon and mom-to-be Dr. Rachel Rohde said in a news release issued by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS).


"A pregnant woman's body goes through a lot of changes that will alter the way she practices yoga, whether she is a veteran or a beginner," Rohde added.

I like yoga, but do not practice it regularly.



More honestly, my answer would be, I like yoga and used to practice it regularly before slacking off and becoming a giant sloth, but that wasn't one of the options listed, lol.

Is that the one where you lay face down on your couch or bed and snore?

ROFL! Yeah, I think it's something like that, only maybe you have to do it in a eucalyptus tree. The main requirement is that you move very, very s-l-o-w-l-y.

I have a pre-teen daughter who fits that requirement quite well... especially when she's supposed to be getting ready for school in the mornings.
