Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga
Classes offer moms-to-be and new moms a place to explore the changes in their bodies, free from expectations or pressures and in community with other moms. Gentle stretching often relieves many of the common discomforts of pregnancy, while specific asanas (postures) help moms prepare for labor and birth. Pre-natal and post natal yoga classes adapt common physical yoga postures, with an awareness of the changes and needs of the female body.
Wendy Durham has been involved in the health and wellness industry her entire life. She received her bachelor’s degree in Nutrition and worked as a Spa Director in the Hotel industry for many years while teaching fitness classes. Ultimately, her interest in holistic health led her to leave the corporate world to become a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), specializing in prenatal massage for the past 19 years. She has taught Prenatal Massage, Infant Massage and Anatomy and Physiology, most recently as an adjunct faculty member at Great Bay Community College. After opening her own private massage practice within the Yogalife Institute, Wendy decided to continue her love of learning by studying yoga and becoming a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT). She is now excited to bring her many years of prenatal experience to the mat as part of her Prenatal Yoga Class. Wendy’s goal is to provide a Prenatal Yoga Class for all levels and to focus on safe movement to build strength and stability, relaxation and a deeper connection. Connection to your changing body, your growing baby and to your prenatal community! Wendy lives in Exeter with her husband, two daughters, one enormous cat, a lizard and three very noisy gerbils.
