Our prenatal classes and series are designed for any stage in pregnancy. You will focus on learning how to adjust your yoga practice to the needs of your changing body during this important time. Classes will encourage the use of mediation, strength, intuition, and community to create ease during pregnancy, childbirth, and once your little one arrives.
We offer 1-2 Prenatal Classes every month on Saturday afternoons. Check our schedule for the next session!
If you have any questions, please use our prenatal teacher Julia Fraizer as a resource: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prenatal Yoga: Regardless of your experience level, upon learning you are pregnant, we recommend a private lesson to work through a breakdown of all the major power yoga poses and how the modifications should feel in your body. If you are new to yoga or have never taken a heated yoga class before, we recommend you stick to our non-heated classes and Prenatal Classes during your first trimester. If you have a regular power yoga practice, feel free to come to all classes. In the winter, practice near the front of the room, in the summer, practice near the back. Be mindful in the super crowded after work classes and weekend morning classes to drink lots of water and take rest. Throughout your pregnancy, we recommend you practice at 70% of your normal exertion. Even if you CAN do things, doesn’t necessarily mean that you should do them. Prenatal Classes, Basic Vinyasa, Slow Burn, and Candlelight are all good classes for your pregnant practice.
You should also start practicing the following modifications: No Jumping, Chaturanga on your knees, No deep backbending, No traditional core work. If it doesn’t feel good, don’t do it. Minimize your risk of falling and only practice arm balances and inversions that you are confident in. Do not invert after 34 weeks of Pregnancy.
