IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

Prenatal Yoga & Labor Readiness
For many women, the birthing time is one of the most transformational periods of their lives.  Come tune in to the innate wisdom of your body and soul, and connect with other expectant mamas.   Using a yoga therapy approach you will reduce physical discomforts associated with pregnancy, build strength and flexibility, learn breathing techniques to relax the mind and tools helpful for labor and birth.
You are welcome to join the class in any stage of pregnancy and with any fitness level. Partners are welcome at half price.  If you have a history of miscarriage, or have had trouble conceiving, please consult with your caregiver and Corinne or Arden to determine the best time to join.

Parent & Baby Yoga
The first few months of your baby’s life is a precious time.  This class offers an opportunity for either parent and baby to explore the many dimensions of this time in order to bond, nourish and connect with other parents. All practices promote postpartum healing and wellness in an atmosphere that encourages sharing challenges and joyful discoveries.
Often, babies are gently and safely incorporated into the class through partner poses and practices that comfort and support their optimal development. Nursing, walking, bouncing, changing diapers and soothing fussy babies are perfectly normal in this space.
Please bring a yoga mat, baby blanket, toys, baby-wearing wrap or whatever else that you feel is necessary.
