Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Love
December 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Sunday, repeating until December 31, 2019
Designed for moms-to-be and new moms (once ready to leave baby at home). Whether you are a new or experienced yoga student, you will be gracefully guided through meditation, breathing, and movement specialized for the prenatal and postpartum body and mind. Designed to both nurture and challenge you, this class is intended to empower yourself during pregnancy and the early stages of motherhood while providing a space to connect with other mamas. You’ll benefit from much needed relaxation, while strengthening the muscles that support you during pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period. The class is taught by Katie Peterman, Linking yoga postures with the breath will lead you to new discoveries, bringing awareness to the mind, body, and spirit, as well as the spirit of your baby. Prenatal Yoga will help strengthen the uterus and pelvic muscles, improve circulation, aid in digestion, exercise the spine and increase overall comfort. It can also alleviate many of the discomforts of pregnancy such as nausea, constipation, varicose veins, swelling, back pain, and sciatica. A safe, open community allows you to freely connect to other mammas discussing any issues, from discomfort and concerns to the wonderful new changes your body and baby are experiencing. The class it taught by Katie Peterman, who is a 200RYT-certified (through Alignment Yoga) and Blooma trained prenatalyoga instructor. She has been practicing yoga since 2001 and attributes it to helping her through several back injuries and becoming more mindful not only as a mama but also in everyday life. While she has practiced everything from Bikram to Iyengar yoga, her passion for prenatal yoga was sparked in 2013 with the birth of her first child. Pregnancy can be a very physically and emotionally vulnerable time and yoga is a wonderful way for women to connect with each other, nurture their minds/bodies and have some fun!
