As a personal trainer and yoga instructor I help you prepare for the physical side of pregnancy and birth through workouts tailored to your changing body. There are many forms of safe and effective strength and flexibility exercises to help you best prepare for birth so choose one that suits you!
MyBirth Prenatal Yoga at Henrico Doctors' Hospital
Thursdays - 6:30pm
The Women’s Hospital knows that yoga helps prepare your mind and body for the journey of birth. Our uniquely designed curriculum helps expectant parents find comfort through pregnancy, while building community and gaining tools to achieve your best birth.
Through the physical postures of yoga, breath work and relaxing meditation, your body and mind will feel ready to bring your baby into the world in whichever way you choose.
We begin each class with a conversation about the current state of our pregnant bodies and then tailor the movements and practice to meet the needs of each participant, finding an experience that can be gentle or challenging as suits the needs for each mother.
On your schedule
Private sessions allow us to work together completely at your pace and on your time.
These lessons are ideal for those who are used to working at a more intense level, but want to learn appropriate modifications to continue their active lifestyle without worry for their or their baby's wellbeing or for those who are just starting out on their fitness journey and need to move at a slower or more moderate pace.
