Prenatal Pilates

Prenatal Pilates differs from “regular” Pilates in that there’s more of a focus on the transverse abdominis, which is that deep layer of muscles that “corset” the waist. The core connection becomes about building and reinforcing the support system, instead of increasing the strength of the abdominal contraction. The deep breathing, as well as the mind-body connection, emphasized in Pilates sessions and classes helps to prepare mothers for labor and childbirth. These factors also help increase resolve, to better cope with the emotional ups and downs many women experience during pregnancy.

Zumbini with Francesca: No Way Jose

10:30 am   0-4 years old, with parent/caregiver.

The Zumbini program encourages musical behavior with and without instruments and props, therefore there will always be 2-3 songs in each class that includes “one structured and one unstructured instrument play”. Children and caregivers will have the opportunity to use instruments, such as egg shakers, wooden sticks, bells or drums for which they will jam out too. There will also be “one large movement” song to be interacted with flowing scarves which leads to playing the fun game of peek-a-boo.

The Fourth Trimester: Navigating New Mamahood

So often we teach women about a healthy pregnancy and labor, but leave them hanging and without any preparation for how to navigate the often very intense postpartum period. This class will take you through the ins and outs of this sacred time, discussing all the things (yes, all of it!) that no one talks about!  In it, you’ll learn what to expect from your post birthing body and the emotional and mental changes that occur, including a woman’s changing identity into “mama.” We’ll also cover how to effectively rehabilitate your core and pelvic floor, essentials of nutrition, herbs, and supplements to support your body and breastfeeding, and self care practices to help you find calm, peace, and patience, during an often overwhelming time. This will be two hours of packed full of information, tools, strategies, and tips that will prepare you to have a happy, healthy, and well supported postpartum experience that you will embrace and enjoy. Class is open to all mamas, pregnant and postpartum. Can’t wait to see you there!

Prenatal Yoga Classes

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.

No yoga experience necessary

Baby and Me Yoga (Saturdays 10:30-11:45 AM)

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
