Am I completely making up this saying? I swear I've heard the "the proof is in the pudding" before, and I think it goes well with an article I found on Prevention.com, "Yoga Therapy Delivers" discussing the benefits of prenatal yoga. I have no idea where the phrase originated; what's a girl to do but Google it? Lo and behold, I'm not crazy (at least not about this!). It is a saying but was shortened up from "the proof of the pudding is in the eating" - interesting. The saying meaning "results are what count."
So back to the article that shows the results of a study of pregnant women doing yoga versus another form of exercise. Some did yoga (including meditation and breathing exercies) and some walked twice a day for 30 minutes. Those in the yoga group had significantly lower "preterm labor, growth retardation, and pregnancy-induced hypertension with growth retardation" and "higher birthrates" than the walking group.
Very intriguing, especially when the other group is exercising at a decent pace as well. I'd like to tell the naysayers of yoga I told you so, but I'll be more mature. LOL!
