Prenatal Yoga employs both traditional as well as contemporary interpretations of postures to peacefully strengthen and relax your changing body. Prepare for the birthing process and enjoy the company of other moms-to-be, where you’ll also learn how to modify postures for your other yoga practice before baby arrives.
The class ends with a well-deserved relaxation, and is appropriate for new and experienced Yoga students.
Mom & Baby Yoga
Congratulations on becoming a new parent! Just as pregnancy is a time of transformation, so is the postnatal period. Adjusting to your role as a new mother or parenting multiple siblings, it’s a challenge to balance life with baby and family while affected by hormonal changes, lack of sleep, and physical strain. Yoga tailored to you will help!
Bringing baby with you, this yoga is a gentle way to help your body recover from childbirth while bonding with your baby. Enjoy the opportunity to connect with other mothers and share the experience and insights of raising a child in community.
Special attention is placed on rebuilding core strength of the back, abdomen, and pelvic floor, as well as relieving tension in the neck, and shoulders caused by lifting, carrying, and nursing. No previous yoga experience is required.
Through creative play, children’s yoga is proven to improve self-esteem, classroom behaviors, concentration, emotional balance, and the ability to self-soothe.
Children will be introduced to yoga postures and simple breathing techniques specifically for this age group (~3 to 8 years old). Classes are 1 hour. Parents are welcome to attend and join in on the fun or drop off your child! If parents are attending, one adult per child please.
There is no pre-registration required – drop in each week and keep your receipt for the Child Fitness Tax Credit. This class is offered monthly throughout the year with a special and inspiring theme each session.
