PRENATAL YOGA - This class is designed to provide women with a safe space to connect with their changing bodies as well as other moms to be, connecting their experience to others in their community as well as that of women throughout history, tapping into the innate wisdom within.
You will be guided through asana that prepares you for pregnancy, giving birth, and provides a foundation for postpartum recovery. It will help you cultivate a new awareness that will assist you through labor and delivery, and find a deeper connection with your growing baby. Interweaving childbirth education as well as addressing aches and pains associated with pregnancy, the class will help to strengthen the uterus and pelvic muscles, improve circulation, aid in digestion, provide relief and comfort to the areas of the body most impacted by your growing belly.
Taught with a strong focus on alignment and a healthy dose of humor, these classes help you navigate your changing body and life with grace and acceptance.
READY SET GROW DANCE FOR PREGNANCY- Movement is MAGIC! This class utilizes basic dance fundamentals to help pregnant people create space in their bodies, feel invigorated and relieve common pregnancy related discomforts; helping them to feel empowered, powerful, beautiful. Bending, stretching, moving fluidly within the limitations created by a growing belly, using support when needed, with multiple options and modifications offered for every exercise or movement sequence. Incorporating elements of ballet, modern and numerous contemporary dance forms (and sometimes the creative choices of the students themselves), classes are created for the people in the room, each class as unique as the bodies present and the babies within them.
*No dance experience or ability necessary!
