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.

  • Is 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 recommenced 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 Registers Prenatal Teachers, which means they have undergone special training to understand how to safely work with pregnant women.
