Saturday and Sunday: 9-5:30pm
Pregnancy is one of the most extraordinary times in a woman's life. It is a time for nurturing oneself as well as the unborn child. It’s also time for learning to meditate and find focus in breath. Prenatal Yoga Classes provide safe exercises designed to strengthen and relax a rapidly changing body, preparing students for a conscious childbirth and the opportunity for mother and child to bond prior to birth.
Prenatal Yoga Classes go beyond the physical realm of movement and embrace pranayama/ breathing techniques that relax the mind and give focus during times of stress and uncertainty as well as meditations that help a mother discover a deeper sense of peace, empowerment as well as lifting fear and doubt out of pregnancy and birth. As a mother’s feelings and emotions are felt by her unborn child it is of utmost importance for a mom to create a peaceful, loving environment around herself. Each Shanti Mom Prenatal Yoga class will have a theme designed to be uplifting and bring awareness.
Women with a passion for working with other women during pregnancy are invited to train with this unique program.
During each step of this training teacher trainers will learn to do:
Create and guide expectant moms through asana safe for pregnancy yet challenging
Create and guide expectant moms through meditations for mom and baby
Facilitate bonding with other moms going through a similar transition
Plan classes that are designed specifically for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of expectant moms
Apply knowledge of pregnancy complications and contraindications to assure mom and baby's safety at all times
