Weekly Class Schedule - Winter 2019
Prenatal Yoga relieves common discomforts of pregnancy such as back and hip pain, muscle stiffness, leg cramps, sciatica and varicose veins. Circulation and digestion improve. Many people find that they sleep better and are more able to find balance amidst the physical, mental and emotional changes that come during pregnancy.
Learn to tap into breath as a powerful tool to energize and calm both body and mind and reduce stress. The practices will help you connect with your own inner wisdom and with your baby.
Many of the postures, movements and breathing practices we do in yoga are natural to labor. Flowing through a balanced practice will build your confidence and courage as you prepare for labor and birth.
Private sessions for prenatal and/or postnatal yoga are also available. See below for details.
