Prenatal Classes

Prenatal Yoga is suitable for students new to yoga as well as more experienced practitioners. These classes allow women the space and time to connect with their changing bodies and growing babies. Moms-to-be to be are guided through healthy breathing practices and modified yoga poses that alleviate pregnancy-related discomforts while making more space for babies to move and grow.

Prenatal classes can empower the mother-to-be to have the most conscious birth experience possible. Cultivating breath awareness while strengthening and opening the body strengthens the mind body connection which is so important in preparation for labor. Attending classes can also be a great way to meet other expectant others and be part of a larger community.

General guidelines are that prenatal yoga is appropriate for expectant mothers at all stages of pregnancy however it is recommended that you confirm with your medical professional.

Postnatal & Baby Classes

Postnatal & Baby Yoga classes are a great way to get back into shape without needing a babysitter and it’s fun for your baby too! It is an opportunity to get out of the house, connect with other moms in the neighborhood, and to bond with your baby in a social setting. Practice poses that involve and entertain your baby while taking time for yourself to stretch, strengthen, heal and reconnect to your own body.

These class are sensitive to postpartum bodies and not overly strenuous but we recommend midwife or doctor approval to practice yoga postpartum.
