Classes begin with a brief check-in circle so that teacher can be aware of any conditions that can be addressed within the practice. It can also be an opportunity to hear from others and their part of the journey.
After a warm-up on the hands/elbows and knees, we will practice standing postures to strengthen the legs and pelvic floor as well as to build endurance. The Balance poses at the wall will help to strengthen and stabilize the core muscles. Hip openers help to keep the muscles around the pelvis flexible and strong. We always close with one or two resting positions to allow integration and relaxation
Ujjayi breathing is used throughout class and occasionally we will practice other pranayama (breathing) practices.
At the end of the 6 weeks you will put it all together and have a great selection of tools for the Mindful Mamas journey through pregnancy and labor.
