Hot yoga and pregnancy: fitness and hyperthermia.

Abstract

QUESTION:

One of my pregnant patients wishes to continue her hot yoga exercises during pregnancy. Is this practice safe?

ANSWER:

With the increased risk of neural tube defects and possibly of other malformations among fetuses exposed to excessive heat, pregnant women should avoid practising hot yoga during pregnancy.
