Union Yoga presents Empower your Pregnancy: A Prenatal Yoga Series taught by Megan Cassamas every Friday at 10:45am, September 6 - October 4. Cost is $100 for the 5-week course, or $23 drop-in.
Union Yoga wants to empower pregnant individuals throughout the journey of pregnancy and birth by teaching them how to maintain a serene mind in a healthy, strong, yet relaxed body.
Prenatal Yoga is a supportive practice, beneficial for both expectant parents and babies. It uses physical movements, breathing and meditation techniques to safely address the changing needs of the body, enhancing their mind/body connection. It is an excellent labor preparation building endurance, and giving them the skill to deeply relax, helping to reduce their fears and apprehensions.
Each week this 60-minute workshop dives into a different theme (i.e. the pregnant body changes, conscious respiration, low back care, pain coping strategies for labor, the healing traditions of Ayurveda) with a short educational lecture followed by a full physical practice ending with a deep guided relaxation. Then we will allow time to share and connect as a community of pregnant individuals in a friendly atmosphere.
