PRENATAL YOGA CLASSES AND POSTPARTUM SUPPORT SINCE 2005 - FIND YOUR COMMUNITY!
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.
