“Birth is what women do. Women are privileged to stand in such power! Birth stretches a woman’s limits in every sense. To allow such stretching of one’s limits is the challenge of pregnancy, birth and parenting. The challenge is to be fully present and to allow the process because of inner trust.” - Elizabeth Noble PT (Founder of Section on Women’s Health of the American Physical Therapy Association)
- Pregnancy is a time of change and letting go. The practice of yoga helps you to learn and trust the new capabilities of your pregnant body while simultaneously improving the flexibility of your mind. Yoga helps women trust in the natural process of creation and to stay grounded in their own individually unique prenatal experience.
- The practice of prenatal yoga unites body, mind and spirit. It is especially important during pregnancy to trust your innate instincts and intuitive wisdom. Paying mindful attention to your pregnant physical body and mental state during yoga participation may help boost your immune system function.
- Prenatal yoga provides an opportunity for inner reflection and celebration of the sacred joyful journey of motherhood. It helps prepare you for a graceful and more natural birth process. Many women find the breathwork and Dristhi (focal point) practices mastered during prenatal yoga participation helpful for managing the challenges of labor.
- Prenatal yoga participation allows you to enjoy quiet time and bond with your baby to be. Find time to play and harmonize with your baby prior to giving birth. Nurture your transformational motherhood journey together with prenatal yoga self-care.
