“Before you were conceived, I wanted you. Before you were born, I loved you.
Before you were here for an hour, I would die for you. This is the miracle of life.”
- Maureen Hawkins
Pregnancy is one of the most extraordinary times in a woman's life. It is a time for nurturing mom, as well as connecting with the unborn child. It’s also time for learning to meditate and ﬁnd inner focus with breath.
Prenatal Yoga classes provide safe movement designed to strengthen and relax the rapidly changing pregnant body, preparing one for childbirth and offer the opportunity for the mother and child to bond prior to birth.
Prenatal Yoga goes beyond the physical realm of movement and embraces pranayama/breathing techniques that relax the mind and give focus during times of stress as well as meditations that help a mother discover a deeper sense of peace, empowerment as well as lifting fear and doubt out of pregnancy and birth. Pregnant women coming together to prepare for birth creates a community of fellowship and support. Each class will have a theme designed to be uplifting and bring awareness.
