Prenatal Yoga Class In Minneapolis

Benefits of Prenatal Yoga Classes

Pregnancy is an amazing time too connect the mind, body and spirit through yoga.  My yoga practice started prior to my pregnancy, but grew in amazing ways through my pregnancy, postnatally and as a mother.  My practice teaches me daily how to be the best mother, wife, sister, daughter, and friend I can be, every day! Everything is related, everything overlaps.  The mindfulness we practice on our mats, carries into every aspect of our lives. Yoga helps me be a better me.

In prenatal yoga we learn breath, balance, calm, and surrender.  We learn how to trust our bodies, our intuition, and believe in the capabilities of our bodies. Yoga is so much more than a downward facing dog, or a warrior pose, it’s hard to put words around the benefits until you experience it for yourself.  Being challenged both physically and mentally, allowing the mind to fully clear from what doesn’t serve us, and then basking in the bliss of savasna, the final resting posture where you get to lay, completely relaxed, and absorb everything good you gave to yourself.  Truly there is nothing like it.

Trust your prenatal yoga instructor, like you trust your birth professionals.  I have studied prenatal & postnatal yoga since 2004. In addition to my formal yoga training, I completed Birth Doula training, and have been honored to attend the births of some my students.

In 2010 I began teaching other teachers how to teach Prenatal Yoga, after writing a Prenatal Teacher Training Program, which I teach along with Jennifer Gray at Yoga Center.  The Prenatal Practice is very different from a usual yoga class, there are many modifications from a regular class, seek out a class that fosters your pregnancy in all of it’s amazing stages, with someone you trust!!

I teach yoga pregnancy classes and workshops at Yoga Center in Minnesota.  Check my schedule page for current class offerings.
