I do yoga and have done it for years. My initial diagnosis was IBS, so I started yoga as a way to control my stress levels. Once I made the move to a new GI and got the UC diagnosis, I just continued with the yoga because it was such great stress relief. Right now, I do a prenatal yoga class... but before I was pregnant, I did a regular yoga class, and I intend to go back after my son is born. I absolutely love it! The classes relax me, and yoga can be great for your abdominal muscles. I find I am even able to do yoga while in a flare-up... whereas I could never do high impact exercise in a flare-up due to my stomach pain.
