We offer yoga classes specifically for moms-to-be with all of the modifications necessary to be safe yet effective. Taught by a Yoga Teacher with two certifications in Prenatal Yoga, these classes are geared towards strengthening the childbirth muscles along with relieving some of the aches and pains that come along with pregnancy. Sciatica, round ligament pain, sacroiliac joint pain, carpal tunnel and many more pregnancy issues are helped by gentle stretching and breathing.
Another benefit of the prenatal classes is the opportunity to meet other expectant moms and create community. NOTE-These classes are interactive and supportive.
Educational subjects are discussed at each class and open dialogue always welcome. This is not watered down traditional yoga but instead an opportunity to learn and share while stretching.
New to yoga? Not a problem. Expecting twins? You can benefit from yoga too.
CURRENT SCHEDULE: Sundays at 9 am, Mondays at 5:30 pm, Tuesdays at 6 pm & Wednesdays at 6:30 pm.
