MODULE I: Yoga & Fitness Fusion Classes
This speciality prenatal designed combo class of fitness and yoga infuses cardio, strength training for arms and legs, along with several modified yoga postures and stretches to give you a taste of everything that you will need to prepare you for childbirth. These classes were created to ensure a safe space for your growing belly and transforming body so you can maintain a healthy level of fitness, exercise and awareness as you blossom and bloom into motherhood.
These classes will help you:
- gently open your hips

Each class will end with a guided meditation and visualization as you relax your body and calm your mind so you can fully connect and embrace the life growing within you. This is a great opportunity to meet with other expectant Mamas in your community!
Prenatal yoga is a great way to connect with your growing, ever changing body and adapt to the various stages during your pregnancy. You will be guided through several yoga postures that have been altered to support your blossoming body and will be taught many different breathing techniques that will be useful tools to have while you are going through labour and delivery. Most importantly, prenatal yoga invites you into a deeper relationship with your precious baby as he/she receives all the positive energy, unconditional love and intimate connection that this special yoga class creates within you and around you.
Mindful Momma Meditation
Each session will gently guide you through a series of breathing techniques, fear releasing strategies and birth visualizations to help you connect to your mind, your body and your baby. This is designed to encourage you to let go of any and all fears that you may have surrounding childbirth and bring you deeper into your body so you can connect with the growing heart beat in your belly. This is to help you surrender to the changes in your body each day so you can fully embrace, embody and embrace the magical journey you are about to embark as you prepare for the birth of your baby.
