Class Description

Our prenatal yoga classes are sequenced and designed for your changing body and growing baby.  We invite you to come and be a part of an amazing group of women where we hope you will learn a little more about yourself, develop a deeper connection with your baby and feel grounded as your baby’s birthday draws closer.

Each yoga practice will consist of safe, gentle postures that will also include some breath work and mindfulness meditation.    In our classes you will learn skills and techniques you that will be able to draw on and use during labor and the birth of your baby, or any time during your pregnancy when you might be feeling nervous, anxious or stressed.  It is our hope that our yoga classes will help prepare you for the hard work of giving birth to your baby and allow you to cultivate more self-awareness during this transition to new motherhood.  Whether this is your first baby or your fifth – every baby is a beautiful new beginning.

We will provide a safe, open space where we encourage you to ask questions, share your doubts, fears or concerns – from the changes your body is going through to the new life growing within you.  Our yoga community extends far beyond the mat.
