Prenatal and postpartum yoga classes for parents, partners, and babies.

Practicing yoga throughout pregnancy offers many benefits including improved sleep, increased strength and flexibility, increased body and breath awareness, and decreased risk of some complications of pregnancy. After pregnancy, parent and baby yoga classes are a gentle way to ease back into movement and exercise while bonding with your new baby.

Yoga & Support Series

6 weeks of Mindfulness-based  prenatal yoga classes paired with a group forum for childbirth education and support through your pregnancy.

Parent and Baby Yoga

A unique opportunity for parent and child bonding in an informal yoga session. Babies up to 12 months are welcome.

Learn to listen deeply to your body during birth.

Because we can not think our way through labor, prenatal yoga is a perfect way to drop beneath the thinking mind and into the body/mind to prepare for birth. Erica illustrates the ways in which the practice of prenatal yoga teaches us to listen deeply to our bodies during birth.

 
In the Nona Prenatal Yoga and Support class, we weave together mindfulness, childbirth education and yoga for a holistic approach to pregnancy, childbirth, and early parenting. Ample time is given for support and sharing; and discussions are rich, genuine and informative.
 

Pricing and details:

Class time includes yoga, childbirth education basics, discussion, support with other pregnant women and deep relaxation. It is an excellent complement to any childbirth education program.

Sessions are offered 3-4 times per year. Each session is 6 weeks in length and includes six, 2 hour & 15 minute classes for a total of $175.

Each 6 week session is held in a rotation on either Tuesday or Wednesday evenings from 6:00-8:15 pm. Sessions are scheduled to be taken as a compliment to the Nona Mindful Birth Education Series.

Nona Prenatal Yoga is appropriate for all fitness levels and all stages of pregnancy. No experience is necessary.

If you’re interested in experiencing prenatal yoga in combination with childbirth education, mindfulness and discussion, you might also like the 6 week Nona Prenatal Yoga and Support Series.  Many women do both drop-in classes and 6 week sessions throughout their pregnancy as they are meant to compliment each other.

Parent & Baby Yoga Details

 

Birth parents will likely be ready to join after 6 weeks postpartum.

However, if you’ve experienced a cesarean birth or a significant tear, you may be more comfortable waiting until 6-8 weeks postpartum.

If you have any complications or concerns, feel free to contact Amber.

Please bring a blanket for your baby to lay on!
