Yoga for Moms-to-be
As a first-time pregnant woman and yogini, I’ve learned a lot about letting go of expectations and embracing the unfamiliar in the past 6 months. With a constantly changing center of gravity and the added physical demand of growing a little one in my belly, I’ve had to adapt my practice from a strong, vinyasa flow to a more mellow, but still strength-building hatha practice. Fortunately, I have a prenatal yoga certification under my belt and have been able to stick with regular yoga classes without getting frustrated at all of the inaccessible and no longer comfortable postures offered.
If you’re a mom-to-be and find yourself challenged in navigating regular yoga classes, please drop by our new Prenatal Yoga class. Beginning 8/14/10 and being offered each week on Saturdays from 9:30-10:30a, I’ll be leading Pilgrimage’s Prenatal Yoga class. This class will not simply include relaxing postures, but will focus on flexibility, strength-building, relaxation, breathing, and connecting with your growing baby. With this more comprehensive approach, you’ll build or keep your strength up during pregnancy, aiding in a quicker and more pleasant post-delivery recovery. Plus, you’ll get to connect with other moms-to-be who can share in your pregnancy experience.
Drop by any Saturday morning or call the studio for more details!
