Prenatal Yoga can help align the body and help mom with carrying the baby most comfortably. Prenatal yoga can prevent and relieve many common discomforts of pregnancy including backache, water retention, fatigue, and sciatic pain.
Yoga also helps to stabilize the emotions, relieve stress, and integrate changes in the body. You will leave class feeling relaxed, centered and energized!
Prenatal Yoga not only stretches the muscles improving flexibility and promoting healthy blood flow, but yoga also builds strength.
This combination of strength and flexibility allows the body to keep active and stay strong as it changes to carry your growing child. Healthy muscles stretch more easily, and are less likely to ache, tear, or cause injury.

Yoga builds strength and confidence in the body and stimulates the relaxation response, releasing fear, tension, and stress that can be a barrier in childbirth.
Through yoga practice we develop body and breath awareness, focus, and concentration, learning to relax quickly and completely and practicing softening around the sensations of opening up. These are the skills that will help you most as you move through your labor.
