Prenatal Yoga, Yoga for Two
Oct 22 @ 9:00 am – 10:15 am

Pre­na­tal Yoga, Yoga for Two is a pre­na­tal class focused on birth
prepa­ra­tion.

Pre­na­tal Yoga is the nur­tur­ing activ­i­ty under­tak­en when time is spent (a
lit­tle or a lot) to gen­tly relax, release and attune to your body and your
rapid­ly grow­ing baby with­in. The nat­ur­al, vital and restora­tive ener­gies of
the body and mind are enhanced through gen­tle yoga pos­tures.

When preg­nant, one feels the strains of the ever-changing body. Yoga
coun­ter­bal­ances the grow­ing abdomen and main­tains good pos­ture. Stretch­ing
while strength­en­ing helps to release the pelvic open­ing in prepa­ra­tion for
birth. Ton­ing the pelvic floor allows for a more con­trolled birthing,
lessens com­pli­ca­tions and enhances post­na­tal heal­ing.

Breath work is prac­ticed in prepa­ra­tion for respond­ing to labour by
coor­di­nat­ing with the rhythms of con­trac­tions. Breath­ing aware­ness is
essen­tial for relax­ation, com­fort and con­fi­dence. Just being in your body
that is home for two is yoga. Your preg­nant body is nat­u­ral­ly and
mirac­u­lous­ly in a state of enhanced ener­gy and cre­ativ­i­ty. Tak­ing time to
pause from the stream of day-to-day activ­i­ty to con­nect with your body
enables you to expe­ri­ence and enjoy these aug­ment­ed sens­es.

All women expe­ri­ence some fear of labour. A sim­ple foun­da­tion in yoga
pre­pares you to face child­birth with courage. To be relaxed and con­fi­dent
dur­ing labour reduces fear, ten­sion and fatigue. Flex­i­bil­i­ty and calm ease
the birthing process, thus reduc­ing pain and increas­ing the joy of giv­ing
birth.

While prac­tic­ing yoga, your rela­tion­ship with your baby
deepens–physically, men­tal­ly and spir­i­tu­al­ly. It is a time to be mind­ful
that you are engaged in the cre­ation of new life, and to be atten­tive to
the impact of this major life pas­sage. Tak­ing time in this way allows the
quick­ly pass­ing nine months to be cher­ished.

Each class ends with a dis­cus­sion with top­ics such as, decreas­ing stress­es
in preg­nan­cy, induc­tion (nat­ur­al meth­ods, risks of med­ical induc­tion,
acupunc­ture), birth sup­port peo­ple & more.
