The practice of prenatal yoga is an opportunity to enhance your pregnancy with presence and trust, in addition to being ideal to prepare for childbirth and motherhood.
Designed specifically for a pregnant woman’s needs, classes embraces the practice of postures, breath awareness and relaxation to help ease pregnancy, delivery and the after effects of birth. These classes help to strengthen and soften, make room for the baby in the womb, soothe the nervous system and welcome the transformations of the body.
My prenatal yoga classes provide a safe and supportive environment for expectant mothers and are a wonderful way to connect with other mothers-to-be. Prenatal yoga program is for pregnant women from 8 weeks until birth, no previous yoga experience required.
Postnatal yoga is a great way to get back in shape without the need of a babysitter! Practicing yoga after childbirth is a precious time to rest, rejuvenate and inspire.
The intention in postnatal yoga is to help women strengthen their back, abdominal and pelvic floor muscles, release tension in the shoulders and neck muscles, decrease stress and promote inner-calm. Classes use asana (postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises) to tone from the inside out, while giving time to bond with their babies as dedicated games and movements with the little ones are integrated.
My postnatal yoga classes provide a safe and supportive environment to relax and renew, and are a wonderful way to connect with other moms and babies. The program is appropriate for women from about 6 to 8 weeks postpartum, up until about 8 months, or when baby begins to crawl; no previous yoga experience required.
