Breath & Focus of Prenatal Yoga
Barb Ezell’s prenatal practice is active, challenging and supportive so that mother and baby benefit from postures without strain. Prior yoga experience is helpful, but not necessary for this series. Your pregnancy, birth, and recovery will be improved by a regular yoga practice. Sequences are designed to work with individual students and have a flexible ease, humor and loving feel.
Our classes will focus on:
Practice yoga postures and breathing exercises for better health during and after pregnancy and during labor.
Learn how to use the breath to reduce stress, increase circulation, and prepare for labor and more.
Connect with other mothers who are at all stages of pregnancy and early parenting.
Become informed and make the best birth choices for you and your baby.
Improve your postpartum recovery.
Prenatal yoga links postures (asana) and breathing exercises (pranayama) to create awareness of your own mind, body and spirit, and the spirit of your baby. Yoga is ideal preparation for giving birth. This prenatal yoga program is taught in a way that will help you access your own intuitive understanding of birth.
Yoga postures during pregnancy will strengthen the uterus and pelvic muscles, improve circulation, aid digestion, exercise the spinal column, relieve fatigue and tension and revitalize the internal organs.
Yoga can also alleviate many of the common discomforts of pregnancy.
Breathing practice during pregnancy opens the chest and helps to improve circulation in both mother and baby. It also calms the nerves and gives the mother greater control of her breathing during labor.
Barbara Ezell is a certified Prenatal Yoga Instructor with Yoga Alliance and teaches in accordance to the American Medical Association’s “Guide for Exercise During Pregnancy,” and is safe for all fitness levels.
