The Mamaste Yoga program is suited for both the beginning yoga student who is finding yoga for the first time while pregnant and also for continuing students who have practiced prior to conception.
Mamaste classes are designed for students of all levels of yoga practice in their 2nd & 3rd trimesters and in the months postpartum. In prenatal yoga we help women prepare for labor and delivery by working specific areas used in labor and delivery. Our postnatal classes focus on renewing mom and meeting the needs of baby and the new mother. Regular attendance assures that you will consistently practice these exercises for greater benefits.
When can I begin attending class?
Our prenatal classes are open to pregnant women in their 2nd and 3rd trimesters. We recommend that women take it easy
the first 12 weeks of their pregnancy and allow their body that time to become accustomed to the changes of
pregnancy. Beginners are welcome, no previous yoga experience is required. If you practiced yoga before becoming pregnant this does not mean you have to stop your practice all together.
Check out our information on yoga for the first trimester for guidelines in modifying your practice.
You may begin attending our postnatal classes as soon as you feel up to it. You can fully participate at around 6 weeks postpartum.
