Like all yogic practice, prenatal yoga focuses on postures (asana), mental focus (dharana), and breath (pranayama) to keep your body, mind, and spirit healthy during your pregnancy. Proven to keep back and joint pain away, the asanas that we focus on keep your joints aligned and muscles strong. Dharana takes you focus off of your ever-changing body and eases the birthing process. Pranayama leads to inner relaxation and dispersion of hormones which keeps you serene. The practice of prenatal yoga, also, helps your body return to a toned and lean state faster, post-pardum.
Doctor’s permission is required before participation, though most previous conditions can be worked through during prenatal yoga. This class is about pregnancy, for pregnant moms, so join us. It is a treat for yourself and baby!
Baby and Me Yoga invites moms and/or dads to practice yoga with babies from ages 6-weeks to 2 years. This class is just long enough to gain balance, without being too long for baby. It’s a play group with spirit. Feel free to bring a blanket or bottle for feeding and your own mat.
This is a class about families, for families. The little members mostly “ooh” and “aah” in fascination with what the older babies and parents are doing. The older babies are encouraged to try what they can and are allowed to wander to other mats to make new friends. We have seen plenty of “firsts” (rolling over, crawling, singing) and we look forward to seeing your family come play yoga.
