Since 2005, these classes has provided many women with a supplement to their childbirth education and preparation, and many babies with happier, healthier moms!

In this class you will learn techniques to support your changing body and prepare you for childbirth, such as:

  • Yoga-based relaxation skills for cultivating present moment awareness, mindfulness and focus
  • Breathing practices for calming the mind and the nervous system, as well as breath work suitable for labor
  • Yoga postures for strengthening leg, hip and back muscles to help you prepare for the athletic feat of childbirth
  • Tools to cultivate positive thinking and letting go of worry

supported-savasana-prenatalEach class will be built around one of these four themes and will always include breathing, stabilizing postures, safe stretching, pelvic floor and core strengthening, relaxation and a brief meditation. Read more about our philosophy and background here.

Grateful Yoga is committed to offering expecting parents yogic tools to prepare for birth and new parenthood.

  • Saturdays, 8:30-9:30a
  • Wednesdays, 7-8p (postnatal students welcome as well)
  • You will see two options VIRTUAL or STUDIO- choose which one you want and you will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom link if you choose Virtual.
How much?

Prenatal yoga is most effective when done frequently. We recommended two classes a week, if possible, throughout your pregnancy. Your body and your baby will thank you!

You can reserve a class and if you can't make it, we will send you the recording, which will be good for one week. Not all of our regular yoga classes will be recorded, so let us know in advance if you would like this option and we will have the teacher contact you.
