Prenatal Yoga

This first class will be more of an introductory class to show all the mom's to be what are the crucial exercises to do or what not to do during each trimester. The class is designed for all levels no matter what trimester you are in or yoga background. It is important to understand how the body is changing and how to keep mom healthy during all 9 months for an easy delivery.
No matter where you are in your pregnancy, taking time to move mindfully is a gift to both you and your baby. With the guidance of our expert prenatal yoga teacher Wendy Santiago, you’ll learn how to adapt your asana practice for each trimester.
Build strength, relieve stress, and prepare for delivery while keeping your practice customized and safe every step of the way.

With Pregnancy the “yin” is (the egg) and “yang” is (the sperm) meeting together in LOVE and creating “Qi” (pronounced: Chee, bringing the life source)…  Pregnancy is a transitional time for women, when many physical & emotional changes take place. Prenatal Yoga is about honoring these changes in ourselves and our body as we connect to baby throughout these nine months. Postures to help strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, keep the body flexible, alleviate many common discomforts of pregnancy, while finding focus through balance & the breath to connect mother and baby and prepare for a healthy, mindful, more natural approach to the challenges of labor and birth. Sharing information and knowledge with meditation/relaxation for a peaceful, calm state of mind.

Prenatal Yoga is used to help mothers connect better with baby, stay healthy throughout pregnancy, remain flexible and strong helping her prepare for the challenges of labor & birth. Prenatal Yoga includes poses, deep breathing, relaxation and meditation that may be practiced through all trimesters (clearing any medical issues with the care provider). Prenatal Yoga is a great way to connect with other mothers-to-be and establish friendships that go far beyond birth.
