Fertility yoga is a valuable first step in preparing one’s body, mind, and spirit for significant life changes. There will be an emphasis on poses that reduce stress, promote a positive spirit, and increase energy flow through the body which can support the hormonal and reproductive system to welcome new life.
Prenatal yoga is perhaps the most ideal way to stay in shape during pregnancy, with gentle poses designed to keep muscles toned and joints limber while also improving balance and circulation. It also teaches the mother-to-be how to breathe fully and relax, which will prepare her for labor and giving birth.
Postnatal yoga provides a gentle way to recover after childbirth with mothers going through moderate yoga routines to restore strength, flexibility and balance, while at the same time promoting the production of breast milk. The class also provides an excellent opportunity for new mothers to bond and interact with each other.
