Pregnancy Safe Classes

Is This Practice Safe?

Yes. Prenatal Yoga is safe, however we do have some recommendations and precautions:

  • Check with your doctor before beginning Prenatal Yoga.

  • If you had an already established practice before becoming pregnant, then you are fine to continue to practice with some restrictions.

  • It is important that pregnant women start slowly and take their first class at about 50-60% of what they think their limit is so that they can see how their body responds.

  • If you are new to yoga, it is recommended that you do not begin to take class until your 2nd trimester.

  • If something doesn't feel right, don't do it!

  • Our instructors are Registered Prenatal Teachers, which means they have undergone special training to understand how to safely work with pregnant women.

How Does Prental Yoga Help With Labor and Delivery?

  • The focus and connection with the breath allows a woman to tap into the rhythm of her body and work with it instead of fighting against it.

  • Women who do Prenatal Yoga tend to have more stamina, especially during trimester 2. The focus of the prenatal class will be to build strength and stamina to prepare the mother for the intensity of labor. Mothers who have had this practice typically have a stronger pain tolerance and know how to work with their bodies.

  • Prenatal Yoga classes release endorphins, or "feel good" hormones. The same hormones are released during labor and are much easier to recognize and savor to women who have been practicing Prenatal Yoga.

  • Studies have proven that Prenatal Yoga and meditation help facilitate more comfort during birth, shorter and more manageable births, less medical interventions, and faster postpartum recoveries.
