Join a practice that will strengthen your body and your spirit: Asanas, the physical poses, can help build strength and stamina and improve circulation. Meditation can improve the abilities to relax and to concentrate. Pranayama, breathing exercises, can help manage the pain of contractions. The process of birth is not a Hollywood script, it is work made of muscle, mind, sweat, and love. By toning the body, focusing the mind, and challenging the spirit, yoga can help a mother be present for the miracle of birth. Take this time to get to know your body and to build confidence in your ability to give birth. Please have your doctor fill out a PARmed-X for Pregnancy prior to taking this class.
