Prenatal yoga is a healthy way to strengthen your body and prepare it for the changes of pregnancy and delivery. It is also beneficial for the mental and physical health of mother and fetus.

are considered highly beneficial.  You can trust our certified yoga teachers to guide you through this process in a fun and loving way. You will also get the opportunity to meet other women going through the same changes you are.

Exercising every day is recommended for most pregnant women! Pregnancy significantly changes your body so make sure you have a doctor’s approval before exercising during pregnancy. The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) now recommends: “In the absence of either medical or obstetric complications, 30 minutes or more of moderate exercise a day on most, if not all, days of the week is recommended for pregnant women (ACOG, Committee Opinion#267, Jan. 2002, reaffirmed 2009) .”

Cost:  $12 cash/class. Other yoga packages, trial packages, and coupons cannot be used for Prenatal Yoga.  Unlimited yoga can be used for prenatal yoga class.

You can build on what you learn in prenatal yoga to take other yoga classes at our studio.  There are important modifications and poses to avoid or substitute for other poses.  You can then use that to take vinyasa classes and or therapeutic yoga classes at our studio.  Some pregnant women do vinyasa their whole pregnancy, others do not.  It’s up to you and your body to decide.  This makes unlimited yoga possible for pregnant women at Liberty Yoga.
