Yoga poses strengthen our hips, back, arms and shoulders. It also helps you strengthening your mind and your inner power which supports you for an easier and joyful labour.
As we try to focus on holding and breathing through each yoga pose, we are able to fine tune our balance, physically and emotionally.
Yoga relieves tension of lower back, hips, chest, upper back, neck and shoulders –
As baby grows, more stress is put upon these specific muscle groups in our bodies. Our hips get tighter due to the added pressure of baby’s weight in our bellies. As our breasts increase in size, our upper back and chest have more tension, along with our neck and shoulders.
When our bodies are in that mode, our digestions operate properly, we tend to sleep better, and our immune system is at its optimal.
You are working with conscious breathing during each yoga pose, which may sometimes be challenging. This transfers into the time of labour, allowing one to practice being “comfortable with the uncomfortable” through our breathwork.
A prenatal yoga practice allows us to slow down and focus attention on what is going on within our bodies.
Circulation is enhanced within our joints and our muscles are elongated during practice. Upon circulation of the blood within our bodies, swelling is decreased and our immunity is enhanced, creating a healthy environment for a thriving baby.
It can be very comforting to be with a group of women who understand what we are going through.
This time allows us to stop and slowdown from our busy days. Through the practice of yoga, you are setting intention in taking care of not only yourself, but of baby
What makes it unique?
Our prenatal yoga is designed to support you and your baby mentally, spiritually and physically throughout your pregnancy, birth and the first three years of life. It is empowering, educating and builds communities of like-minded parents. We know that the child begins its life journey when it enters its mother’s womb. That is why we believe it is so important for women to feel safe, sacred and supported in this very special time.
You will move your body with yoga and breath, learn to meditate and connect with other women.
Our prenatal program helps mothers-to-be discover a deeper sense of peace and harmony within, lifting blocks of fear, doubt and old conditioning out of pregnancy, birth, as well as life. Developing a meditative mind, she brings this to her birth experience, as well as to her family and home. Our goal is to create a more peaceful world through strong and conscious mothers.
