Mamasana Prenatal/Postnatal Fusion Yoga Classes (online privates available)
*Must have 3 registered in the series to run the series each month
Pregnancy is a transformative time in your body and becoming a parent transforms your life. A prenatal/postnatal yoga practice is a wonderful opportunity to mindfully create space and time for welcoming new life into the world. In this class, we will practice ways to breathe and move that are safe and effective for women at all stages of pregnancy and the first 6 months postpartum. Each class will open with a check-in to build community and find out what is going on in your body week by week. The kriyas (movements with breath) and asanas (postures) we will practice alleviate some of the common ailments and discomforts that come along with your changing body and will ultimately help to prepare you for the birth of your baby and the ebb and flow of challenges that arise postpartum.
Note about bringing your baby: Our primary focus will be on your personal practice, but we invite infants to pre-crawlers to come to class. If your baby is sleeping, allow them to stay that way and rest nearby you in their carseat or wherever they are most comfortable. If they are awake we will integrate them into the class and I can offer assistance by holding babies as needed or preferred. Feel free to bring a blanket from home to place over our studio blankets where your baby can rest/play/interact. You can feed or care for your baby in any way that is needed throughout the class. Come and join us in a safe atmosphere where you can meet other moms, strengthen your body, maintain flexibility and make space and time in your life to take care of yourself.
"Thanks for all of the wonderful positions and pressure points, and for all the practice with breathing. Everything from class came in handy and was instrumental in my labor. "
