ABOUT THE CLASS
Pre-Natal yoga helps you adjust to your changing body through its growth and evolution and helps prepare body, mind and heart for both birth and motherhood. Class includes: breathwork (Pranayama); physical postures (asanas); and relaxation/meditation, helping you connect with your body and baby. It will help you prepare for childbirth as you strengthen the pelvic muscles and legs, open your hips, and release tension in your upper body. It will also improve circulation, aid in digestion and relieve some of the overall discomforts of pregnancy. A great place to connect with other pregnant women, sometimes creating relationships that carry forward to playdates after birth!
Education is an ongoing part of our programming- it is integrated within the class so you are on the mat rather than sitting and listening to someone talk as if in a classroom setting. Come meet other moms to be- join us for prenatal yoga at the Yoga Loft.
Tania’ education includes a 750 hour teacher training program, 2 prenatal yoga teacher trainings and a year long internship with her teacher in Toronto with over 40 years of experience. With this extensive knowledge she has offered Prenatal Teacher Training programs attended by other teachers who are now offering prenatal classes in the community. Tania has 2 girls of her own and has taught these classes and our mom and baby classes for 5 years now- her extensive knowledge of pelvic floor issues is integrated into everything she offers and she is starting to collaborate with a local physiotherapist who also focuses on perinatal health.
