Yoga is an ideal lifestyle choice for pregnant women. Even as a beginner, pregnancy is the perfect time to take up this ancient form of exercise. In addition to increased flexibility, pregnancy makes you more aware of your emotions, your body and what goes into it.

As a holistic approach to exercise, yoga takes a well-rounded approach to improved well-being. It’s about taking care of yourself, eating well, being fit and living a balanced life. There’s an added bonus for pregnant participants – all that breathing, meditation, relaxation and stretching goes a long way during your pregnancy, while in labour, and after the birth.

Pregnant Sienna Miller Hates The Gym So Is Trying Pregnancy Yoga

Pregnant Sienna Miller Hates The Gym So Is Trying Pregnancy Yoga

Sienna Miller is expecting her first child with fiancé Tom Sturridge and has recently begun practicing the relaxation and strengthening technique because she hates working out.

She said: “I have been trying to do some pregnancy yoga as I’m definitely not a gym person.

“My mum started up one of the first yoga schools in London in the 70s, so I should probably utilise her expertise as I have really bad posture. But I think I’d probably kill her if she tried to tell me to sit up straight.”

Sienna thinks her skin looks much better since she got pregnant – though she is unsure whether that is due to her having quit smoking and drinking alcohol.

She added to Marie Claire magazine: “My skin definitely looks better since I became pregnant – although not smoking or drinking has probably helped with that.

“Body-wise I’ve been slathering on Dr. Hauschka Blackthorn Body Oil to try to prevent stretch marks, which is gorgeous and certainly seems to have worked so far.”
