Pre Natal Yoga with Jonni-Lyn Friel
May 18 to June 8
From: 11:00 am – 12:15 pm
Yoga offers tremendous benefits to women through every phase of pregnancy, labor and childbirth and throughout the postpartum period. During pregnancy, women experience many changes physically, emotionally and mentally. On the physical level, yoga helps women to build and maintain their strength, stamina and flexibility. We will be learning Yoga’s breath awareness and pranayama techniques, to help quiet the mind as well as guide the breath during labor. Together we move through this time, supporting each other and ourselves. Through movement, mantras (chanting) and mudra (hand gestures) we will take these ancient practices and use them to guide and support us during this unique time in our lives.
