Typically mothers are ready between 6-12 weeks post delivering their baby. (General rule of thumb: vaginal birth will take about 4-6 weeks; c-section will take about 6-12 weeks to recover enough to attend.) Every woman heals differently. Once you and baby feel ready or you have received the okay from your healthcare provider, then come on in!
With both my babies I attended Prenatal Yoga classes. Although I was a yoga teacher prior to becoming pregnant, the classes offered way more support than I could've imagined. Being with other women, learning ways to release common pregnancy discomforts, and feeling confident in my body with the process of birth was priceless.
"Thank you for a wonderful prenatal yoga experience. I was a bit apprehensive about taking yoga because I hadn't started earlier. Your breathing techniques as well as birthing positions guided me greatly during my labor day. It eased my labor process and I swear by it now."
The yoga industry has quickly become saturated with new yoga teachers, Insta-Yogi's, and know-it-all's. As a whole this is not a bad thing. Concern arises when students put all their faith and ability into one teacher... and don't know anything about that teacher - especially their yogic background...
I'm a RPYT (Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher) and RYT 500 (Registered Yoga Teacher) rooted in the Hatha tradition, and the Samkhya philosophy; however I attend a
variety of classes, like Kundalini. I’m living my dharma (purpose) by creating a community to assist
women during the rite of passage into motherhood through the mental, emotional, physical and
spiritual qualities of the yoga practice.
In addition to yoga, I'm a mom of two beautiful children and have many interests including Feng Shui, Reiki, alternative healing methods,
harnessing my intuition and whatever else inspires me along the way!
