There are many benefits to practicing yoga while you are pregnant, no matter what type of birth experience you are expecting. Practicing yoga during pregnancy can teach you to reconnect with your body, to deepen your connection to your unborn baby, how to use your breath as a tool for calming yourself down, and to physically prepare your body for the delivery of your baby.
In our Prenatal yoga classes, we focus on poses that build strength and endurance, essentials for labor and delivery. We also introduce poses that prepare your pelvic floor muscles for birth, practice breathing techniques that can be used during the earlier stages of labor, and practice mindfulness of the present moment, a habit that can be very beneficial during pregnancy and motherhood. We also have a ton of laughs and fun!
Just as importantly, we have built a community of expectant and new moms who live in the Duluth area who are traveling the journey of motherhood together. It is a safe and non-judgmental place for you to ask questions and discuss those things that may make you feel uncomfortable elsewhere.
Katie Karel leads our prenatal yoga classes, is a certified prenatal yoga teacher, with several years of experience working with expectant moms, and is the mother of 4.
Please remember that you should check with your prenatal healthcare provider to make sure it is safe for you to start a new exercise practice, including prenatal yoga.
