We support your pregnancy through a conscious, nurturing and strengthening yoga practice.
Prenatal Yoga is a great way to build strength and flexibility to help carry a growing belly and baby, alleviate common aches and pains during pregnancy, and allow for quicker postnatal recovery.
Our prenatal yoga exercises are targeted to teach you to use your muscles efficiently during labor, and we practice effective breathing and relaxation techniques so you are better prepared for birth.
Practicing yoga also gives you a calm, quiet, relaxing and rejuvenating space to turn your attention inward and connect with your baby.
We understand that you have a busy schedule and so offer our classes at convenient times so you can practice after work, during the day or on weekends.
All stages of pregnancy are welcome!
PRENATAL & POSTNATAL YOGA
Often prenatal classes and postnatal classes are held separately.
This unique class is an opportunity to build community and seek resources from other Soon-To-Be and New Parents.
Babies are welcome but you can also come by yourself and take this class as an opportunity to practice without distractions!
YOGA FOR LABOR & BIRTH
Offered as a private session and in workshops. This class is a great way to understand what to expect in the process of giving birth.
Labor involves the unique combination of engaging your abdominals while relaxing your pelvic floor muscles, which can be tricky and challenging. We use safe abdominal exercises, kegels and squats and simulate mock contractions to help you accomplish this challenging balance. Not only do we target these specific muscle groups, we also learn to synchronize them, while building strength and flexibility where they are most needed.
You will learn breathing and relaxation techniques for different stages of labor, safe and targeted abdominal exercises to tone your transverse abdominals (pushing muscles), and practices to build strength and flexibility in your pelvic floor.
We teach partner massage techniques, talk through using natural pain management techniques such as counter pressure, and teach you how to use props such as birth balls and rebozos, as well as other physical comfort measures to help you feel your best during pregnancy, to aid in labor and birth and for a quicker and easier postnatal recovery.
We will also practice breathing and active relaxation exercises for specific stages of labor, best positions to labor in at home, in the birth center or hospital, partner massage techniques, talk through using natural pain management techniques such as counter pressure, and teach you how to use props such as birth balls and rebozos, as well as other physical comfort measures to help you feel your best during pregnancy, to aid in labor and birth and for a quicker and easier postnatal recovery.
