Downloadable Prenatal Yoga Classes


Prenatal  Yoga at Home 

Pregnancy can be wonderful and exciting, but it can also come with a host of anxieties, mood swings, and mental health changes. Yoga can help us calm down, regulate the nervous system, and teach stress management skills that will benefit both parent and baby. Yoga can also ease the aches and pains of pregnancy and help to prepare the body for the birth process.

This downloadable class package includes six video classes (recorded from a live Zoom class) that cover gentle movements, stretching and strengthening appropriate for a pregnant body (and many options to return to postpartum), plus Restorative postures to help with rest and relaxation along with a specific focus on pelvic floor and low back health. Each class also addresses the underlying mental and emotional aspects of pregnancy so you can have a calm, connected pregnancy.
