Essential Practices for all on the Perinatal Journey
What is Perinatal Yoga? This is an inclusive class open to anyone on the perinatal journey (preconception through postpartum at any stage) who want to be part of a supportive and welcoming community where they can safely and openly discuss the joys and challenges associated with fertility, pregnancy, childbirth and parenthood. Young babies (6wks-crawlers) are welcome to attend class along with their postnatal parents.
What is class like? Strengthen mind, body and spirit with a class designed to help people deepen their experience of the perinatal journey. Each week you will learn relaxation and breathing exercises to ease stress, enjoy flowing and strength building movements for abdominal and pelvic floor toning as well as gentle and restorative postures to address and relieve common pregnancy and postpartum discomforts and to enhance postnatal recovery.

Why start yoga now? Studies show that birthing parents who participate in Prenatal Yoga have better birth outcomes and parents with a regular yoga and mindfulness practice report less stress, anxiety and overwhelm in their lives.
What if I can't make all 6 classes? You can "make-up" up to 3 missed classes in this series at any of our regular small group classes which are always perinatal-friendly within 3-months of the purchase date. Please note that unused classes are non-refundable. This policy allows us to pay our teaching staff for the time and expertise and thus we are unable to make any exceptions, medical or otherwise and thank you in advance for for honoring this policy.
What should I bring to class? A yoga mat, two blocks if you have them, a thick blanket and a filled water bottle. Additionally, if you're bringing your baby, bring a second blanket to place under them along with anything else you’ll need to keep yourself and baby comfortable during class (e.g. toys, feeding or diapering needs, etc.)
