Yoga during pregnancy can prevent and ease pregnancy- related discomfort.
Regular yoga practice has been shown to increase stamina and endurance. It creates space, strength, agility and stamina for active natural birthing.
During your classes, you will learn breathing, visualization, and meditative techniques for creating inner calm and focus, and tools to cope with the sensations of labor and birth.
In our modern world, many pregnant women are bombarded with external stress. Your yoga classes will help you relax and connect with yourself and your baby.
Women who practice yoga throughout their pregnancies report easier labors and smoother postpartum recoveries.
Yoga practice gives baby the delicious biochemical hormones and feelings of relaxation, relieving the toxic effects of inner stress and angst.
Yoga during pregnancy improves neurodevelopment in the womb, newborn, and even into early childhood, which positively enhances the mental and emotional health of future generations.
Regular yoga practice prepares you for an empowered pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experience. This leads to optimum health and well-being throughout your childbirth journey and beyond.
The prenatal yoga classes include mindful Hatha, Iyengar and Restorative practices. They are available on Skype, or in-person private or small group classes in your home or my cozy studio in Nyack, NY. They are ideal for mamas who don't want or can't get to a yoga studio class, and would love more individualized assistance, guidance, and an intimate connection with a teacher not available on DVD or online classes. It is like having your own personal midwife -yoga coach!
