Prenatal yoga can prepare you to meet the challenges of pregnancy, birth, and early parenthood. It is beautiful to see mothers translate yoga breathwork and bodywork into labor coping techniques and again into mindful parenting and postnatal recovery. In addition, studies on prenatal yoga suggest that a regular prenatal practice aids in:
- Reducing maternal stress and anxiety
- Reducing discomfort in pregnancy
- Lessening pain in labor
- Improving birth outcomes (such as healthy birth weight and reaching full-term pregnancy)
- Improving maternal self-efficacy (positive feelings about personal abilities)
My prenatal yoga instruction includes centering meditation, visualization, breathing practice, and celebration of the changing body through both vinyasa and yin techniques.
Private yoga classes are tailored to your needs and requests. Focus during instruction time varies; I aid clients in such needs as preparing for birth prenatally, healing from an injury, learning mindfulness meditation, or achieving a challenging arm balance. I will offer hands-on assists and break down postures during our sessions. I come equipped to support your poses as needed with yoga bolsters, blocks, straps, wedges, and aromatherapy eye pillows.
Private classes can be done in your home for $60/hour. If you are a doula client or if you purchase 10+ classes, the rate is discounted to $50/hour.
