New & Expecting Mothers

This is a wonderful collection of convenient and quick practices with our best pre and post-natal teachers. Prenatal Yoga can help moms prepare for labour and motherhood by building stamina, strength, and confidence through gentle movement and focused breathwork. Our Postnatal classes are designed to be quick, gentle, and efficient so you can practice while your baby sleeps.
We created this offering so that mothers can safely and effectively maintain their practice while pregnant or after they've given birth.

Please be sure to check with your health practitioner before beginning a yoga practice if you are pregnant.
