Regular Class Offerings:
Yoga for Fertility
A practice to help nurture the mind, body and spirit to prepare for the physical and emotional demands of reproduction. This class blends asana poses to strengthen and enhance blood flow to the abdomen, and relaxation techniques to nourish your spirit. This class is designed for women of all ages and stages, whether you're actively trying to conceive or are proactively planning for that "someday baby".
Connect with a fabulous community of moms and moms-to-be for community, support, movement and meditation. Prenatal Yoga focuses on enhancing comfort, building strength & endurance, relieving stress, easing aching hips and back, and building skills for labor, birth and parenting. More importantly, each session includes a check-in for community building and mutual support. Appropriate for all stages of pregnancy.
“Mama Yoga”, like prenatal yoga, begins with a check-in, during which we share the joys and challenges of the journey of mothering. Then follows a physical practice focused on the needs of the new mom – rest, rejuvenation, posture, core strength and more. Students may begin postpartum yoga once they've received approval by their doctor or midwife.
Baby + Me Yoga
Practicing yoga WITH your baby is a wonderful way to heal from pregnancy, bond mindfully and build and essential mom-tribe. This class is relaxed and informal, including activities with and without your baby (in case they are sleeping!) with plenty of time & space allowed for feeding, diapering and meeting baby’s needs. Appropriate for babies 3-weeks-old to crawling.
Get your family out of the house, to engage together for a fun memorable experience. Enjoy interactive game-based yoga activities to get a good stretch and to plant the seeds of mindfulness and healthy living for our littlest yogis!
