Online Pre & Post natal Yoga Classes
What Yoga Heartbeat says
I teach pregnancy yoga classes to prepare and empower mothers physically, emotionally and spiritually for birth. The focus is orientated to the awareness of listening to yourself and the baby in your womb. It assists in the process of transition to motherhood, provides a relationship with the baby during pregnancy and gives the mother tools to go through labor more effectively. After 60 min class the mother feels comfortable, relaxed and fit during pregnancy, supporting the health of her growing child and easing delivery and labour pains.
Postnatal Heal, strengthen and nurture with postnatal yoga. Breathing and stretching exercises work to relieve tension in the body as well as connecting with a community of mums. I combine specific postnatal yoga exercises for both mums and babies to enjoy together. The postnatal yoga focuses on strengthening the abdominal area and restoring pelvic muscle function. Helps to relieve lower back pain, reduce and alleviate neck and shoulder tension and realign the spine.
Open level, A yin yoga class usually consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body: the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues, while expanding flexibility and invigorating the energy centers of the body (nadis), blockages are released and your energy flow increases. Yin yoga focuses on static movement, pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation. The primary differences between yin yoga and many others forms of yoga is that you are encouraged not to use your muscles and passive poses are held for up to 5 minutes, sometime longer. This flow of energy through the body in chinese medicine is referred to as chi and in Yin yoga philosophy as prana. This energy travels through pathways in the body referred to as meridians. It is thought in yin yoga the chi runs through the connective tissue in the body (meridians/pathway).
