Practicing yoga in pregnancy has many benefits for mom and baby. First of all, it promotes the reduction of some annoying pains related to gestation and the improvement of mood. Furthermore, this discipline allows you to develop greater attention to listening to the body, to meditation and to breathing, important elements for getting in touch with the child and for lowering stress levels. 

For this reason we asked a Ilaria Cellura, who is an acupuncturist, yoga instructor and naturopath, to illustrate some yoga wheel exercises in three video lessons. Through the yoga practice applied to this method it is possible to find a correct posture and improve breathing. The yoga wheel will be very useful especially during the birth phase, to feel the breath and the pelvic floor. 

We remind you that before starting any activity it is advisable to carry out one medical examination to accept the general state of health and it would be useful to perform the exercises with the supervision by a professional.
