Prenatal yoga helps mamas stay present in their changing bodies and helps improve the nervous system by calming the mind, which helps to facilitate pain management during labor. It helps to build stamina and strengthen the body, while also balancing the changing hormones and helping to reduce stress. Our prenatal classes are taught by instructors who have specialized in a prenatal yoga training and are Registered Prenatal Yoga Teachers with the Yoga Alliance. This is in effort to make certain both mama and baby are safe.
