Pre-Natal Series Class
Next held on Tue, Jul 25, 2017 at 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm
This enrollment runs from Tue Jul 11, 2017 - Tue Aug 8, 2017
Yoga and pregnancy seem to fit together naturally. The flowing movements help to tone and stimulate the muscles and bones without depleting energy, the seated poses nourish our tissues and organs and help us focus our minds, and the breathing exercises teach us how to remain calm and open in the face of vulnerability, stress, and states of flux. All of these aspects of a Yoga practice can enhance the experience of pregnancy and give us tools for labor, delivery and beyond.
During this series class, we'll look at Yoga sequences and exercises that create space in the body for your baby to grow, relieve common prenatal concerns, and prepare your state of mind for the changes ahead. You'll have a chance to share this important time of your life with other moms-to-be in a supportive and caring environment and participate in the prenatal experience more fully and with greater awareness.
"I labored naturally for 12 hours. I am so thankful for the yoga work I had done. I was able to maintain focus through each contraction and keep calm through breathing techniques I learned through yoga practice." -Shannon: Pre-Natal Student at S.D.Y.
Price: $75 (Register early as enrollment is limited to 8.)
