Pre-Natal Yoga


Pregnant women who practice yoga 

  • Improve their labour and delivery outcomes

  • Reduce their perceived pain, stress, anxiety sleep disturbances

  • Lessen their risk of premature birth, and

  • Enjoy shorter labor duration

[1][2]

The Prenatal Yoga Program will consist of both strengthening and

releasing postures, together with breathing techniques and relaxation

time. The intention is to create a practice to nurture and prepare your

body through the seasons of pregnancy, and to help you feel good

moving your body. Small class sizes will allow for personalized

modifications and guidance.
