    What happens in prenatal yoga?

    Yoga practice during pregnancy is designed to help moms build strength and fitness while accessing the inner resources to face the challenges of labor with confidence and calm. A typical prenatal yoga class might involve:

      Breathing

      Prenatal yoga breathing techniques may help you reduce or manage shortness of breath during pregnancy and work through contractions during labor.

      Strength and Fitness Work

      Moms in prenatal yoga are working to maintain fitness for a comfortable pregnancy as well as train for the endurance event that is labor and birth. Holding your bodyweight in postures while working against gravity is a great way to build strength. We’ll also do pregnancy appropriate vinyasa, moving with breath, to build fitness.

      Stretching

      You’ll be encouraged to gently move different areas of your body through their full range of motion while standing, sitting or lying on the ground.

      Mindfulness & Mental Focus

      Through mindful movement, concentration exercises, and guided visualizations, mammas prepare for birth and parenthood. You might be encouraged to listen to your own breathing, pay close attention to sensations, thoughts and emotions, or repeat a mantra or word to bring about a state of self-awareness and inner calm.

      Relaxation & Rest

      Every prenatal yoga class sets aside time for conscious relaxation in restorative postures. You’ll relax your muscles and restore your resting heart rate and breathing rhythm.

      Prenatal yoga was a weekly treat for me during my pregnancy.  After class I always felt stronger and more centered – better prepared for childbirth and parenthood.  Before the prenatal course, I didn’t have much interest in yoga, but Jen’s course made me a believer. I look forward to continuing my yoga practice in the future.”
