Examining the energy cost and intensity level of prenatal yoga

Women were required to register for and commit to 11 weeks of classes 11 classes total ; therefore, the study participants did not vary from class to class.

All methodological aspects of the study were reviewed and approved by the university's Institutional Review Board. Survey administration Women consented to participate and completed a brief questionnaire at enrollment and self-reported demographic variables age, race, marital status, and annual household income , current height and weight, gestational age, number of previous pregnancies parity , prepregnancy weight, and answered several questions related to their PA behaviors and beliefs.

Specifically, with regard to PA behaviors, women were asked to self-report prepregnancy and current levels at enrollment. Class description Each 60 min class varied according to the specific asanas utilized; however, commonalities were present with regard to their structure.

Each class began and ended with 5 min of relaxation savasana. After relaxation, the class included 50 min of various asanas, focused on fostering the mind-body connection, as well as the connection between mother and baby. A trained research assistant was present to ensure proper wear and supervised each class.

Output utilized for this study included minute data of kilocalories and MET values. The device derives its output by a combination of parameters including accelerometry, heat flux, galvanic skin response, and body temperature.

Subject characteristics of gender, age, height, and weight were also included in deriving the energy expenditure output. The use of the Sense Wear Armband was recently validated among a sample of pregnant women.

Minutes per week of current and prepregnancy moderate and vigorous PA were calculated for each participant and compared to PA recommendations. Minute data were obtained via the Sense Wear Professional Software v7. These same procedures were applied to obtain the average MET value for each participant.

Finally, the number of minutes within each class spent in light, moderate, and vigorous intensity PA was calculated for each participant. All other demographic characteristics of the study sample are shown in Table 1. Table 1 Open in a separate window On an average, women met PA guidelines before becoming pregnant, but not during pregnancy [ Table 2 ].

Our findings indicated that the intensity level and the energy expenditure achieved during a 60 min prenatal yoga class were, on average, considered very low comparable to intensities of preparing food, washing dishes, or walking slowly around the house. Therefore, the prenatal yoga practice assessed within this study did not contribute significantly toward the achievement of aerobic PA recommendations during pregnancy.


Our results suggest that prenatal yoga may not be appropriate for healthcare providers to recommend as a means to achieve aerobic PA recommendations during pregnancy.

Although prenatal yoga may not be an appropriate form of moderate or vigorous aerobic PA, there are other documented benefits, including reduction in symptoms of prenatal depression[ 14 ] and maternal discomfort during delivery[ 15 ] that may favorably impact health, albeit not through PA. Since we are among the first to investigate the energy cost of prenatal yoga, these results should be interpreted with caution. There are several strengths and limitations of the current investigation that are worth noting.
