FOR PREGNANCY AND CHILDBIRTH
This invigorating, multi-level Anusara Yoga class helps you gain
and maintain strength and flexibility during pregnancy, as well
as teaching you how to use yoga for labor and delivery. Learn how
to safely strengthen your abdominals to maintain postural integrity
during pregnancy, and to help you prepare to push! Experience breathing
and meditation techniques, and postures for labor and delivery.
All levels of yoga and all stages of pregnancy are welcome. Yoga
for Pregnancy workshop series and prenatal drop-in classes are currently
held at 4 Manhattan locations. <Go
is the difference between the drop-in class and the workshops?
The drop-in class is available for those who
want to check out the class prior to signing up for a series, or
for women who want a second class to compliment the workshop. The
workshops are composed of a consistent group of students, and as
such, we are able to work a little more in-depth than we can in
the drop-in class. There is more focus on using yoga for labor and
delivery, and on learning to use the abdominals for pushing.
the 6-week workshop a one-time series?
Some women take consecutive workshops
throughout their pregnancy. I have found that as a womans
pregnancy progresses, she takes from the workshops what she needs
at that stage. For example, a woman early on in her pregnancy may
not be ready to think about pushing yet. But, when shes
ready, she can start to apply the information. I encourage women
to practice yoga until the day they give birth, and some of my students
labor has actually begun in class!
should I begin to take the workshops?
Women start at all stages of
pregnancy, however, the second trimester is when the majority of
my students begin. I encourage women with a strong yoga practice
to take the drop-in class, or work privately with myself or one
of my teachers in order to learn how to safely modify their practice
in the early months.
are classes held?
Classes are held in four Manhattan
locations. <See schedule for
