Prenatal Yoga: Thursdays 12-1:15 pm
Prenatal Yoga helps moms-to-be reduce to prepare for childbirth through a combination of breath awareness, strengthening yoga postures, relaxation, and community with other expecting moms. You will learn a balanced approach to your birthing experience. Pregnancy, labor, birth, postpartum recovery and life as a new parent is full of intensity and challenge. This prenatal yoga class with perinatal yoga instructor and doula Melanie Schatz will help meet your current needs and prepare you for this exciting journey. Utilizing the Poppy Perinatal Yoga principles of Breath, Alignment, Support and Softening each class is an opportunity for you to establish a better relationship with yourself and your baby. During your time on the mat we will build the strength and stamina required for birth and parenting.
Postpartum Yoga: Fridays 10:30-11:45 am
Postpartum Yoga, often referred to Mama Baby Yoga is an opportunity for you to explore your postpartum bodies (physical, spiritual and energetic). This class seeks to be a space for healing and exploration, we do not work under the ridiculous expectation of “getting back” to a pre-baby body but instead honoring, loving and strengthening the body that has done so much for you and your family. Our time together on the mat seeks to support the mother, build a healthy example for baby and to nurture the spirit. Through mindful movement we will integrate the body, release stress and provide space for you to connect to your intuition with less distraction. The practice of softening, or surrendering to the changes of the body fortifies our ability to adapt with grace to the challenges and discomforts of parenthood. Please bring baby along, this class works best with pre-crawlers who can hangout on the mat or be worn during your practice.
Little Yogis: Fridays 12-1 while Adult Yogis participate in Empowered Flow $5 add on to $12 drop in rate.
(Let us know if you would like us to offer childcare during any other class times!)
*Please note*, Our Wednesday 12 pm Empowered Flow with Britney will be online only through April. Britney is at home with her little ones and is looking forward to sharing a virtual practice with you.
