“I wanted to thank you so much for your gentle and confident approach to your pregnancy yoga classes. When I came to you I’d been diagnosed with prenatal anxiety and depression, and while I was on medicine and having therapy, it was your classes that allowed my mind to be still and enjoy the beauty and wonder of being pregnant and preparing to birth my baby. It was exactly what I needed.”
Attending a Pregnancy Yoga class involves breath awareness, stretching and strengthening, practicing relaxing and tuning into your baby in your womb. You can shift your consciousness during the class into a deeper, calmer state of mind, reducing the stress chemicals that could affect your baby.
Your ability to regularly decrease stress in your life will have long term benefits for your baby. Research has found that prolonged, high levels of stress during pregnancy could have a potentially long-lasting effect on children.
