Prenatal Yoga


Inside you is an innate wisdom that intuitively understands about the very natural process of birth. We help you reconnect with this wisdom, guiding you through a class specifically designed for the journey of pregnancy, interweaving childbirth education as well as addressing therapeutic applications – common aches and pains. Linking yoga postures with the breath will lead you to new discoveries, bringing awareness to the mind, body and spirit, and also the spirit of your baby.

This 6 week program, conducted in a calm, peaceful environment will help strengthen the uterus and pelvic muscles, improve circulation, aid in digestion, exercise the spine and increase overall comfort. Yoga can also alleviate many of the discomforts of pregnancy such as nausea, constipation, varicose veins, swelling, back pain and sciatica. A safe, open community allows you to freely discuss any issues, from discomforts and concerns, to the wonderful new changes your body and baby are experiencing. The ultimate purpose of the Samatva Yoga methodology of prenatal yoga is to best serve women in their preparation for labor and motherhood.

YOU CAN JOIN THIS PROGRAM AT ANYTIME – OUR SYSTEM WILL PRORATE THE COST FOR THE REMAINING WEEKS.


Week #1 | Standing poses + guidelines for a safe practice

This is a wonderful class that addresses the fundamentals of prenatal yoga, including breathing exercises.

Week #2 | Lateral Stretching + hip opening

You will find relief and space in your body as we work through some soothing sequences that focus on releasing tension.

Week #3 | Pregnancy sun salutations with flowing breath-work

We will work through poses to release tight legs, hips and glutes and ease aches and pains.

Week #4 | Forward bends + gentle twists, visualization + pranayama

We will work through guided meditations to connect with your baby, and to assist in your labour.

Week #5 | Poses to stabilize the sacroiliac + pelvic joint

We will address fatigue, morning sickness, aching back, and sequences to revitalize your body and mind.

Week #6 | Working with props + restorative postures

As your pregnancy progresses, your body is likely to crave poses that nurture, recharge and restore both body and mind.

Why Yoga? I came to yoga broken from overtraining & from not listening to my body. The practice made me feel better physically, slowed down my fiery, dissociative & reactive nature, & taught me to listen inside. Great stuff! Yoga has been & continues to be, an invaluable tool for me in my growth as a human being:)

How I live my practice: Yoga continues off the mat & in to my every day world by teaching me consciousness and presence. The more we are physically present in our bodies in any given moment, the more clearly we are able to interpret & react to, or not react to, the tons of information coming in to, and already swirling around our system;)


What I share in my teaching: the power of breath to calm our system & create presence,energetic alignment, fluidity, & to honour how you are feeling on any given day & to move only in ways that feel deliciously challenging, yet harmonious.

Why Yoga Yoga came naturally and instinctively early on in my teenage years because of its grounding nature and allowance for reflection.

How I Have Fun Off the Mat I love playing and snuggling with my son. I love having deep conversations with friends, dancing and singing and laughing.
