Yoga in pregnancy has many benefits; 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, like nausea, varicose veins, back pain and sciatica. This four week prenatal series includes a combination of movement, meditation, breathwork, and education. Barbie is a senior yoga teacher and registered nurse with years of experience in maternal and newborn health. She is currently working with the Canadian Association of Midwives on the Strenthenning Widwifery Services project in South Sudan, and as a Perinatal Nurse consultant with the Reproductive Care Program of Nova Scotia.

The classes will be the perfect mix of movement, breath and education. The movement and breath will help you strengthen and physically prepare for birth. You will also have the opportunity to ask Barbie questions to help increase your knowledge and confidence around the birthing process. Finally, each class will incorporate restorative poses to leave you feeling deeply relaxed, connected and nourished.
