“What a child learns in the womb
cannot be learned on earth."
Prenatal Yoga Class
Every Wednesday 6:00 - 7:15 pm
No yoga experience necessary! Our Prenatal Yoga Program comes with the following:
While recommended, the 8 classes do NOT have to be taken consecutively. Cost is $100.
Prenatal Yoga is an excellent way to slow down, prepare the body for all the changes it goes through and honor these changes in yourself, your body and your baby. Class emphasizes gentle stretching and supported strengthening poses to nurture the pregnant body.
Meditation and relaxation techniques are incorporated to nurture the spirits of you and your baby. The yoga postures and breathing help strengthen the uterus and pelvic muscles, keep the body flexible, and help ease the common discomforts in pregnancy.
Through the sharing of information and knowledge, mothers in the class connect to their babies and prepare for a healthy, mindful, and natural approach to a more peaceful and calm labor and birth. Classes are ongoing and include women in all phases of pregnancy. Taught by Jackie DeGaetano.
