Oh, I'd missed this one because of the holiday! I'm pregnant now and was a regular yoga practitioner before I got pregnant. Let me tell you, it helps SO MUCH with the aches and pains!!! Seriously, I'm practicing every day now because it's the one thing that keeps me feeling great. I've heard though that inversions are fine, even into the 3rd trimester if you've practiced them before becoming pregnant and the baby hasn't dropped yet. In fact they're recommended to help turn breach babies. Of course, once the baby has settled into position for birth you don't want to be messing with it! And I wouldn't be doing them at all without a competent prenatal yoga teacher.

I think yoga is great for all pregnant people. However, Bikram yoga (hot yoga) is perfectly fine to continue to do IF you have been a dedicated Nikram yoga practitioner for atleast a year. Poses can be modified. And you stand in the cooler part of the room. I know of three pregnant women this past year who have continued to practice into their third trimester. But, again, you have to have been a dedicated practitioner prior to doing Bikram while pregnant. It should NOT be the first choice you make if you are pregnant and new to yoga.
