About the Classes
This prenatal yoga 7 class series will invite you to grow, strengthen, focus, train and enhance your mind, body, heart and spirit.
Discover for yourself the calming, healing and transformative power of yoga - intentional meditative movement with breath.
Classes begin with meditation made simple using breathwork, gradual warm up, increasing difficulty as well as yoga play, gentle cool down, and end in deep relaxation.
They are slow flowing, with space to explore specific poses but are meant to challenge you.
Classes are different each session, with classical fundamental alignment-based asana fused with modern postures and their many modifications and varied creative transitions.
The classes are taught with modifications for pregnancy, incorporate positions for positively influencing baby’s position and active birthing as well as those to relieve common discomforts in pregnancy.
They also are fused with meditative, breathwork and visualization techniques and tools for coping with and easing sensations of labor and birth, which will transform your childbirth experience with regular practice.
The seven classes are there for you to practice a different class each day of the week or according to your own journey, then start over again from the beginning of the series.
Each class ranges from on average 60 minutes to 80 minutes, and they build on each other; following the sequence from class 1 onward is advised if it is your first time taking the series or are a beginning practitioner.
Classes are mindful, at a slow safe pace, gentle but challenging, so that you build strength, flexibility and agility.
They start with the basics but are for all levels, and beginners to yoga can take them even if not pregnant!
The need to relax into intensity and the multiple benefits of yoga practice pertain to everyone.
Once you hone your skills, you are welcome to take the Mindful Hatha Flow 8 Class Series that follows below, doing your own modifications as needed - for pregnancy or wherever you are on your yoga journey, or simply start them after you are recovered postpartum.
They also build upon one another, so are meant to be taken successively.
Then you can mix and match to create your own yoga classes for regular practice.
Additional videos are included to enhance your practice with use of the various props, as well as shorter breaks of doing it anywhere and anytime.
It is recommended to watch the videos on the several props before starting to practice, so you understand what they are and why you may want to use them or at least have them on hand.
I just love and have great respect for Sanskrit, so although I teach in English, I do infuse the series with the classical language of yoga as has been practiced for thousands of years, so that you too can connect to the ancient and profound tradition and benefit from it as well.
