Pregnancy Friendly Yoga Series

Saturdays, 9:30 – 10:30am Livestream via Zoom

January 9, 16, 23, 30

 

This series will consist of 4 weekly 60 minute virtual yoga classes that will include breathing techniques, visualization, and deep relaxation practices to connect you with your baby in an intimate and safe environment. This series is open to those that may be brand new to yoga as well as those that may already have an established practice. Studies have shown that practicing prenatal yoga may help reduce pelvic, leg, and low back pain, decrease symptoms of depression, stress, and anxiety, and can help to improve delivery time. We will take this special time together to move and honor our bodies, celebrating all the wonderful things it can accomplish. The poses, breathing, and visualization techniques we will practice during class will be able to translate into your daily life and you might even find them useful during your birthing and postpartum periods.  

Included in the price of your yoga class will be a virtual consultation with Dr. Zazu Cioce, Doctor of Physical Therapy, Certified in Pregnancy & Postpartum PT, who will conduct a screening to determine if participating in the HVPT Pregnancy Friendly Yoga Class series is right for you.
