Yoga Classes and Programs.
Women’s bodies are ideally designed and adapted to carry, give birth to and nourish their young like any other mammal. The power of women to give birth and nurture their young is honored and deeply respected as central to life. Yoga will help you to be aware of your power to give birth and to fulfill your biological potential as mothers. This class will provide 1) physical postures (asanas); 2) deep relaxation techniques; 3) breathing exercises (pranayama); and 4) meditation techniques that will help you during your pregnancy, labor, the birthing process and motherhood.
Yoga is a wonderful helper for new mothers who by working on the physical body, the mind and the emotions simultaneously, can enhance their health and well being as well as that of their baby. Yoga practice provides normalized pregnancy weight, youthful limberness and increased emotional control. The deep relaxation, breathing and meditation techniques result in a very relaxed body, relief from tension, a peaceful mind, yet very alert, inner strength, harmony, peacefulness, and a sense of well being.
