Fingers crossed we will be reopening on Sunday, June 28 with safety precautions in place. A mix of virtual and studio options will be offered throughout the summer and Fall. We want everyone to be comfortable with their choices. :)
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 who is also a mom of 3, 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 information is discussed and students are encouraged to share during the class. All topics are welcome and friendships develop! Stretch, learn and relax with other pregnant ladies in a laid back, welcoming environment.
Anxious expectant moms are our speciality! Join us and find the unconditional support needed to get through pregnancy without fear and anxiety.
New to yoga? Not a problem. Expecting twins? You can benefit from yoga too.
