Yoga in pregnancy has many health benefits, including strengthening pelvic muscles, improving circulation, aiding in digestion, relieving fatigue and tension, and revitalizing energy. Yoga can also alleviate many of the common discomforts of pregnancy such as nausea, constipation, varicose veins, swelling, back pain and sciatica.
Our prenatal yoga series helps to prepare your body, mind and breath for the birth of your baby. Classes are 90 minutes long and include a combination of movement for your body, to increase strength and flexibility; meditation for your mind, to create mindfulness and a sense of calm; and various breathing exercises to improve focus. Each class will incorporate restorative poses to leave you feeling deeply relaxed, connected and nourished.
