Prepare for Your Prenatal Yoga Session

Arrive 10-15 minutes early to set up and use the restroom.

Born Yoga has bolsters, blankets, blocks, and straps. Please bring your own yoga "sticky" mat; not a Pilates mat. If you have any props at home, please feel free to bring those with you, too, like an eye pillow.

Wear comfortable, breathable clothing. Layers work well in the cooler months. The room is set at about 70 degrees.

Do not wear any scents (i.e. lotions, perfumes or colognes.)

Typically yoga is practiced on an empty belly (refraining from meals 2-3 hours before practice.) That is not the case in Prenatal Yoga. You are creating a little human, please eat. Perhaps not a chili cheese dog right before class, but eat lighter foods like fruit, vegetables, crackers, small sandwich, etc. You want energy for the class... and it's a great way to prepare for labor. It can be helpful to eat before and during labor to keep your energy and strength going.

Most importantly: please do not leave early. Allowing time for savasana or a restorative pose often followed by a guided meditation seals the work you have done. Becoming aware of your body, mind, and breath is my goal to assist you through childbirth, and into parenthood. Embrace the moment of stillness.

About Elise

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!
