Prenatal Yoga

Combines postures (asanas), breathing and meditation to help ease discomfort during pregnancy, delivery, and the post birth period.

The practice conditions the mind even more than the body; “The primary benefit of Prenatal Yoga is breath awareness”.   “Use the breath as an anchor; it will draw the attention inward and downward, exactly the direction we want the baby to go.” 

Classes provide a safe, peaceful and supportive environment for expectant mothers and are a wonderful way to connect with your baby.

 


When is the right time to start?  
For expecting mothers who don't have previous yoga practice, it is recommended you wait until the second trimester or week 13.
