Prenatal yoga can assist with a number of the common discomforts experienced in pregnancy such as edema (swelling of the hands and feet), cramping of the legs and calf muscles, shortness of breath as well as sciatic nerve, round ligament and lower back pain. General feelings of tiredness and stiffness can also be greatly relieved by a prenatal practice. In fact, that is one of the primary reasons I have seen moms practice right up until their due dates; inactivity can worsen these symptoms, especially towards the later stages of pregnancy when one tends to feel the most awkward.

Prenatal yoga also prepares the body and mind for delivery. The poses build strength and endurance, open the hips and build the pelvic floor muscles. We also explore poses which help in an active, natural childbirth. The classes also connect expectant moms to one another, sharing resources, tips and experiences of what they are going through throughout their pregnancies. Prenatal yoga classes are recommended for women in their second or third trimester of pregnancy. No prior yoga experience is necessary.

The instructors are very mindful of differing levels of activity and comfort and offer a lot of useful tips for labour and delivery. I feel prepared and armed with a lot of useful poses and techniques. I’d highly recommend this studio (I’ve been practicing yoga for 10+ years). Nancy, December 2015

Pregnancy and Breathing

Learning the art of breathing during pregnancy is a little like relearning how to ride a bike. It’s something we do automatically, but the presence of baby forces us to learn how to breathe in a whole new way. Towards the second and third trimester baby starts to take up more space in the abdomen, shifting organs out of the

Yoga During Pregnancy Improves Mood and Energy

Exercise during pregnancy improves overall mood and boosts energy levels. The University of Western Ontario did a four-week study with over 50 non-active pregnant women.  They were on average 22 weeks pregnant.  They exercised four days a week for 30 minutes a day.  Findings showed more positive moods as a result of experiencing less fatigue. The results are written
