What is Prenatal Yoga?

Prenatal yoga is a beautiful and wonderful way to embrace and experience pregnancy, prepare for the journey of labor and birth, as well as prepare for the new role of motherhood.

Through the practice of mindfulness, breath awareness, gentle asana practice and guided relaxation, women can learn what works for them to aid them in surrendering to their experience of pregnancy labor and motherhood.

Prenatal yoga helps to strengthen and tone the physical body, eases aches and physical discomforts that come from added weight and shifting center of gravity, relaxes and calms the mind and nourishes the spirit of both mom and babe. Yoga also helps to train the mind and body to work together to soften and open which is essential for labor, birth and motherhood.

The benefits of participating in prenatal yoga and support classes taught in the style of Whole Birth Yoga TM are profound. The community and support that blooms within each session, the trust in oneself and each other, and simply taking the time for oneself amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday life help to enable and empower women to look deep inside themselves. The journey of conception, labor, birth and motherhood is an amazing time that transforms the mind, body and spirit,

Much peace and chocolate,
