The focus of this practice is to prepare the body and mind for labor, birth, and motherhood. This is done through breathing techniques, strengthening and restorative asana, occasional chanting, and meditation. The slow and strengthening physical practice is specially suited for a changing body and growing baby. Many mamas have found the postural practice to help ease common discomforts such as aches and pain in the back, hips, and neck/shoulders. All three trimesters and all levels are welcome! As with any exercise program, please consult your physician/midwife before attending.
