Pre-Natal/Preggie Yoga

Pre-Natal YogaPreggie yoga classes provide a supportive framework for women during their pregnancy and the yoga exercises are specially targeted at building physical and mental stamina and endurance required for a healthy and wholesome birth. Meditations are further specifically targeted to aid with pain management. It is a community of like-minded women who are experiencing similar things to you.

Providing a quiet space for your soul and the soul of your baby, by practicing Pre-Natal yoga, you will learn to shift your awareness away from your active mind and towards a deep, quiet place within you. Pre-Natal yoga also offers you the time and skills needed to assist you to focus and connect with your baby, among the other wonderful benefits of yoga practice.
