Prenatal yoga offers a way to celebrate the sacred cycle of creation while developing a community of women who are on the same journey at the same time.
Prenatal yoga adapts to the woman's changing body to assist with common discomforts such as swelling of the extremities, nausea, back pain, sciatica, heartburn, hormonal balances and general tiredness. The physical practice of yoga will tone the body, increasing flexibility and endurance to aid in the process of labor and recovery, while meditation and relaxation will prepare you for the stages of labor and the journey of motherhood.
Preparing for motherhood is the hardest and most important job on the planet, for you are imprinting a child's consciousness. The meditations we practice in class will assist you in balancing the shadow side of being a mother, allowing space for deep spiritual growth. We all contain the creator and the destroyer energy and we as mothers must learn how to work with both energies. We must learn to harness the destroyer energy and use it for productive and loving means, otherwise it can literally destroy those whom we love the most.
"Woman is the molder. You are the molder of time, space, and of man: the man of tomorrow, the child; the man of today, the husband; and the men of yesterday; the ancestors. The entire society, in theory and reality, is based on the spirit of woman." --Yogi Bhajan
