Ongoing Prenatal Yoga Class

Ongoing Prenatal Yoga Class

Fridays 3:00-4:15pm $12  (starts 11/2/12)

It’s no secret that prenatal yoga can be one of the best forms of exercise for mamas-to-be. Join expecting mom and certified yoga instructor, Jacqui Nash, every Friday, starting November 2, for a prenatal yoga class open to all levels. We will begin the class discussing a weekly topic related to pregnancy where future mamas can share their own stories, concerns & ideas about the topic. After our discussion, we’ll explore very gentle prenatal poses for women new to yoga and we will even touch on some sequences for more experienced practitioners. Each class will end with restorative postures, meditation and final relaxation. Join us as we build a prenatal community and we watch our bellies grow together.

Friday 3:00-4:15pm $12. Pre-registration encouraged but not required. Please bring your own pillow. Call Jacqui for more info or to preregister- 845-399-7478




Ongoing: Preggie Mommy & Partner Yoga (SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE)

We have an ongoing prenatal class for moms-to-be and their partners on Sundays from 11:45-1:15pm. Join us weekly, or feel free to drop in.

The class is very gentle. Our aim is to create an environment of non-judgment, safety, and calm for partners so that they can draw upon the postures, breathing exercises, and relaxation techniques we’ve practiced when the big day comes. Although the standard focus in a prenatal class is on mom, we remember that the day can be overwhelming, sometimes even frightening, for dad or partner too. With that in mind, we tailor the class to meet the couple’s individual and combined needs. A typical class is composed of mostly seated postures, many hip openers, a few standing postures, some partner poses, and then a restorative posture for the mommies while daddy or partner works on a strengthening posture or another guided sequence.

Some students have absolutely no experience with yoga, others have practiced for years. Even the most intimidated or disinterested partners will discover a loving, comfortable, nurturing, and fun environment. The class is also a wonderful opportunity to meet other parents and parents-to-be.

Please direct your email to Leigha if you have any questions, or feel free to drop in on Sundays. The class is by-donation, a suggested $8-12 per person.
