Prenatal Yoga (R)

  • Medicine Nest 532 Herald Street Victoria Canada (map)

This 6 week pre-registered series is specifically designed for the journey of pregnancy and preparing the body for childbirth. We will explore techniques for opening the body for labour, connecting to baby and nurturing ourselves.

Flowing through yoga postures and breath work, we will strengthen the uterus and pelvic muscles, improve circulation, aid in digestion, exercise the spine and increase overall comfort. The practices in this class are safe and most suitable for pregnant women. Yoga breathing techniques are taught to expand breathing capacity in gentle and effective way that carries through to labour and the postnatal period.
