Prenatal / Postnatal Yoga Classes
PRENATAL YOGA: Our classes are designed to prepare both your body and mind for the birth of your child. In our classes you will meet other pregnant women in the Richmond area to create a community of support throughout your pregnancy, birth, and beyond.
Sundays 2:30 - 3:45 pm
Tuesdays 5:45 - 7:00 pm
MOM&BABY/PRENATAL COMBINED YOGA: Get to know other moms and moms-to-be while you prepare your body and mind for motherhood. This class will focus on strengthening, stress release, and community building. A dynamic class for women in any stage of pregnancy and those with babies 6 weeks to crawling.
(We plan on adding this class back in April. Keep an eye out.)
YOGA FOR BIRTH: A COUPLES WORKSHOP: Join other couples in this fun and informative workshop that sets the foundation to cultivate awareness in your birthing body and connect with your partner. Together we will...
-practice breath and relaxation techniques
-participate in gentle partner yoga, moving and relaxing together
-learn various partner-assisted labor and birth positions
Please bring an inflated birth ball. 65cm is perfect for the average height mother.
No yoga experience needed for either partner.
This workshop is offered every 2-3 months. Check our Workshops/Series page for dates.
POSTPARTUM PREPARATION WORKSHOP:
This two hour workshop will focus on the needs on the birthing parent and how the entire family can prepare for “the fourth trimester.” We will work on a postpartum plan that includes meal planning, lying in, and healing the birthing body.
Postures and breath work will be woven into the workshop as part of learning how to relax and restore through this transition. Check our Workshops/Series page for dates
OM-POWERED CHILDBIRTH EDUCATION:
We are proud to offer a comprehensive childbirth education course that threads together movement, mindfulness and empowerment in your birth experience. This two part series includes discussion, lecture, games, comfort measures, meditation, and movement.
The first class will cover the physiology of birth (what is really happening and why), relaxation for fear release, and a birth preference activity (what is really important to you?)
The second class will build on your new understanding of the birthing process. What does this really mean in the moment? Learn about the signposts of labor and what movements/positions would support the process at each stage.
We will also cover comfort measures, interventions, choices, hospital policies, and so much more.
Check our Workshops/Series page for dates.
