Pregnancy is a very special and unique time, the beginning of a major life change and journey to becoming a mother. Yoga helps moms-to-be embrace this journey and focus on your body and baby in a deeper way.

Studies have suggested that prenatal yoga can:

  • Reduce anxiety and stress and promote better sleep.
  • Increase the strength, flexibility and endurance of the muscles and joints needed for childbirth.
  • Improve posture and help ease back problems that are common during pregnancy.
  • Expel toxins from the body and improve digestion.
  • Regulate blood pressure and sugar levels in the body.
  • Regulate hormones and emotions, reducing mood swings, nausea and morning sickness.
  • Improve blood circulation and reduce problems of water retention and edema.
  • Promote the connection between moms-to-be and their babies.
  • Classes offer moms-to-be a place to explore the changes in their bodies, free from expectations or pressures.
