Prenatal Yoga: Through yoga, a woman can prepare physically, mentally and emotionally for giving birth and becoming a mother. Moms-to-be are led through a wide range of poses adapted to the ever-changing pregnant body, preparing her for labor and motherhood, as well as helping to alleviate some of the discomforts of pregnancy. Yoga helps a woman tap into her inner wisdom which is her best guide through pregnancy, birth and motherhood. Classes are held on Tuesdays 10:30-11:30am and 7:30-8:30pm, Thursdays 10:30-11:30am and Saturdays 10:00-11:00 am.
Baby & Me Yoga: This is a yoga class for mothers and their non-mobile babies, (6 weeks –1 year), which is both challenging and relaxing. It addresses postpartum conditions such as back strain, weak abdominal wall and pelvic floor, tight shoulders, sleeplessness and stress. It helps women regain strength, as well as adapt and grow in their new role as mother. It is an opportunity to nourish that profound bond with baby. Classes are held on Tuesdays 12:00-1:00pm.
Postnatal Yoga: This yoga class addresses postpartum issues, as in the Baby & Me class, but without involving baby. Non-mobile babies, (6 weeks–1 year) are welcome. Classes are held Thursdays 12:00-1:00pm.
Prenatal Pilates: Learn alternate Pilates-based exercises and the proper modifications that safely challenge the ever-changing body during pregnancy. Watch to avoid specific body movements, as well as ease aches and pains with specific stretches and breathing techniques. Pilates provides the body with deep conditioning needed for the rigors of labor and a smooth delivery. Through Pilates-based exercises and stretches, you will tap into the power of your own breath and strength. Classes are held on Thursdays from 7:30-8:30pm.
Postnatal Pilates (with or without your baby): Reclaim your pre-pregnancy posture and rebuild your stamina. We will use a variety of props – resistance bands, foam rollers, magic circles, and balls to assist you with reconnecting your movements and give you a challenging workout. This class is appropriate for moms six weeks to several years after childbirth. Exercises are modified to meet individual needs and fitness levels. Non-mobile babies, (6 weeks –1 year) are welcome. Classes are held on Fridays 10:30-11:30am.
