In brief: Yes

Yoga is good exercise during pregnancy especially if you have been familiar with this prior to pregnancy.
Like with any other exercise, it is always good to know your limitations and be safe. Yoga involves stretching, toning, relaxation, and various breathing strategies- all of these would be especially useful in labor and postpartum.
