Pregnancy is both a magical time of anticipation and a time of great change. A prenatal yoga practice provides the perfect opportunity for mamas to practice self care and to bond with their growing baby. This class helps participants  meet the need of their changing bodies, allowing them to release any tension and soreness related to pregnancy, support a healthy range of motion, and maintain toned muscles. Emphasis is placed on understanding and working with the birthing muscles, breath work, mental calming and centering, and deep relaxation techniques. All of this not only helps mama feel great in her pregnant body, but also prepares her body, mind, and spirit for her birthing day.

A prenatal practice will give  tools she can take with her off her mat and into her labor room.

But, this practice is not just for mama.

Prenatal yoga is wonderfully beneficial experience for developing babies as well. As a direct recipient of all relaxation hormones and healthy, oxygenated blood mama produces during her practice, baby will love prenatal yoga too, literally growing in a space of calm and peace. Plus, yoga poses are an effective way to help baby get into an optimum position for birthing.

Prenatal yoga is a nurturing time of self care for mama a special time for her to connect with her baby. It’s a moving meditation that mama and baby share. A time to bond with one another in a mindful way that only a mama will have the honor of experiencing.

Baby and Me Yoga

Saturdays 10:30am-11:45am

The first year of motherhood is a time of new physical and emotional demands. Though no longer carrying around a pregnant belly, mamas are now nursing, cradling, and carrying a growing baby, with a post birth body that she is living in for the first time.

Baby and Me yoga helps transition mamas smoothly through the busy early months of caring for a new baby, contributing to her physical and mental well being. This multilevel class is designed to improve posture, strengthen the pelvic floor, rebuild the core, release tension, and help mama find ease in her daily movements while strengthening the emotional and physical bond between mother and child.

Babies are incorporated into the practice with shared mommy/baby poses, infant massage, and various exercises that mama guides baby through to assist muscle development, motor control, and healthy movement.

Furthermore, with each class, mama will become more familiar with movements and sounds to calm herself and her little one, as babies who practice with their mamas are often calmer and sleep easier.

Baby and Me yoga class is the prefect way for mama to get in her yoga practice while bonding with her baby. Because a strong, calm, and peaceful mama makes for a strong, calm, and peaceful baby.

No yoga experience necessary.  Feedings, diaper changes, and meltdowns during class are all welcome. Classes are open to healthy postpartum women. Please get approval from your doctor or midwife before registering.
