yes it is, but be sure to inform your teacher that you are pregnant and that you are in the early stages. your teacher will advise which poses to avoid. its best to go to a designated pregnancy yoga class so you have the right attention and classes are prepared to strengthen all the areas you will need strengthened, and to work safely with your body and baby.
