Yoga Asanas For Nursing Mothers

A nursing mother is faced with innumerable challenges of adjusting to the world around her, especially the physical challenge of nursing the baby.  Nursing and taking  your care of the new born can leave your shoulder and back aching- asking for a break.

It’s a tough time for most women after pregnancy who have to deal with its after-effects, such as weight gain, sagging of muscles, joint pain, backache, fatigue, hormonal imbalance, high blood pressure, and weakness due to some deficiency.

Yoga can help you counteract that hunched over feeling, with an emphasis on moving the shoulders down and back and reopening the chest. These yoga poses can help achieve  body relaxation.

Yoga and meditation will help in relaxing your mind and help to settle within. It will give you immense support in handling the emotions you are bound to go through and develop strength that will enable you to take care of yourself as well as the baby.
