Partner Class

Partner Class

Yoga + Birth Prep 

***THIS CLASS IS CURRENTLY ON COVID-RELATED HIATUS. WE HOPE TO BRING IT BACK SOON!***

On the third Friday of each month, mom and partner are invited to join us for a class designed specifically for them. Parents will learn invaluable skills for navigating labor, and will feel more physically, mentally, and emotionally prepared for birth and beyond. Perhaps most importantly, you’ll bond and grow together as expectant parents. Pregnancy is a special time that passes quickly in our busy lives. Take time for yourselves as partners in this journey, and join us!


Class Details

What to Expect:

Class is 75 minutes and includes breathing techniques, a short all-levels yoga practice, labor positioning, comfort measures, and a pampering session for mom. Expect to learn how working with breath + movement can not only help you prepare for birth, but also help you navigate it with more confidence and ease.

 

When:

The third Friday of every month, 6:30-7:45pm

2020 Upcoming Class dates: THIS CLASS IS CURRENTLY ON COVID-RELATED HIATUS. WE HOPE TO BRING IT BACK SOON!
