Prenatal If you’re pregnant and looking for ways to relax or stay fit, you may be considering prenatal yoga. Good for you! But did you know that prenatal yoga may also help you prepare for labor and promote your baby’s health? Much like other types of childbirth-preparation classes, prenatal yoga is a multifaceted approach to exercise that encourages stretching, mental centering and focused breathing. For example, studies have suggested that prenatal yoga can: Reduce stress and anxiety – Increase the strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth – Decrease lower back pain, nausea, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches and shortness of breath – Decrease the risk of preterm labor, pregnancy-induced hypertension and intrauterine growth restriction— a condition that slows a baby’s growth. To participate you must be at least 12 weeks along. A class pack of 5 or 10 classes is required for registration to join the class.
Yin Yoga The perfect combination of deep stretching and complete relaxation. This class is a wonderful complement to an active practice and is suitable for everyone. It lengthens ligaments, softens joints and relaxes the back. A great antidote to an active day.
