The Benefits of Yoga
With regular practice, yoga can have numerous health benefits including:
Increased flexibility, balance, muscle strength and tone
Improved respiratory and circulatory health
Decreases negative impact of anxiety and stress
Improved athletic performance & reduction of injury
Reduction in blood pressure
Supports improved posture and spinal health
Decreased pain response
Builds awareness (body, mind, spirit)
Increased confidence & self esteem
Provides foundation for self-care, better health and much, much, more
When body, mind and spirit are in harmony, life is so much richer.
I believe there is a yoga practice for every person and every season, and pregnancy is no exception. Finding a teacher that is knowledgeable with the unique needs and challenges of each trimester of pregnancy is important during this time. I am happy to fill this need and work with you on your journey to parenthood!
Classes are carefully planned to accommodate all stages of pregnancy and all levels of yoga experience. I incorporate movement, breathwork, imagery, meditation along with many tips and tricks in each session. Students are invited to work at their own pace and within their own comfort levels. Classes instill a sense of community where students feel welcomed, respected and heard. It is my goal that students leave class feeling empowered with knowledge and greater understanding of their quickly changing body and spirit during this transition to parenthood. It is my hope that they feel stronger and healthier physically and emotionally, than when they arrived.
