Partner Series

Partner Prenatal Yoga - 4 Class Series

Join us for this fun, educational series designed to help expectant couples prepare for the birth of their baby. In each class, expect to get on your mat and do some yoga (exercise is important for both mom AND partner), practice labor pain management and fetal positioning postures, enjoy a pampering session for mom, and end in a sweet couples' resting position with a relaxation meditation. 

Yoga is well-documented as an effective method for reducing stress, learning to cope with discomfort, strengthening and mobilizing the body, and connecting us more deeply to our mind, body, and soul. Yoga and childbirth preparation are a natural fit, and parents all over the world have benefitted from using the practice of yoga to help them cope with pregnancy, prepare for labor and delivery, and ease the stress of new parenthood.

Couples can expect to:

  • Gain hands-on experience in movement-based pain management techniques and strategies 
  • Learn about fetal positioning and how to help baby through the pelvis
  • Connect more deeply as expectant parents
  • Grow more in-tune with each other’s communication styles 
  • Spend quality time together before baby arrives

Frequently Asked Questions

  • q-iconI'm X months pregnant. Is this class right for us?

    This series is designed for any stage of pregnancy, and we welcome all couples no matter where they are in their journey to parenthood. Couples who are later in their pregnancy may find some of the exercises to be more meaningful and useful. However, we may not be offering this series again this year, so even if you’re early in pregnancy, please keep in mind that this may be the only time this series will be available.

  • q-iconWhat if I or my partner have no yoga or fitness experience?

    No worries! This series is designed with complete beginners in mind. Everything we do in class will be broken down in simple terms and everyone will be given ample time to practice and get comfortable.

  • q-iconDo you have mats to borrow? What do I need to bring?

    We have mats to borrow and all the equipment you’ll need. In fact, we’ll have your entire space set up for you beforehand. You’ll be most comfortable in clothes in which you can freely move, and please note that yoga classes are typically done barefoot. Socks are fine if you prefer, though they may feel slippery. You might like to bring a bottle of water, but we have those as well if you forget. You may find it useful to bring a pen and paper to take notes.

  • q-iconIf I'm taking a standard childbirth education class, why do I need this one?

    An in-depth childbirth education class is invaluable, especially to first time parents, but this class will offer techniques and perspectives not often covered in a standard class. This course will offer you more experience with hands-on preparation, a wider variety of tools and coping mechanisms, and even more opportunity to connect and build communication prior to the birth of your baby.

  • q-iconI have classes leftover on my package. Can I use them for this class?

    Regular class passes cannot be used for this series, but remember that all passholders get a discount on this and all special events, and your pass doesn’t expire for a full 12 months so you can join in our regular pre/postnatal classes whenever you like in that period.

  • q-iconWhat If We Miss A Class?

    While parents will get the most out of the series if they participate in all four sessions, there is still plenty to be gained if you miss one. Each class can stand on its own. However, please note that the series must be purchased as a whole and drop-ins are not being offered. There are no refunds for missed classes, but we are happy to invite mom to make up a class in our regular schedule if needed.

  • q-iconDoes my partner need to be my co-parent/spouse?

    Nope! If your primary pregnancy and labor support person is a friend, sibling, parent, doula or other loved one, we invite you both to join us regardless. While there may be aspects of the class, as well as some language used, that feel more applicable to couples, the majority of what we’ll cover will be beneficial and pertinent for any birthing parent and support person, whoever they may be.

  • q-iconI know I'm having a c-section. Is this class right for me?

    Part of the series is learning movement-based labor support and pain coping techniques. If you are planning a c-section (we actually like to call them belly births!) then you may feel left out from those portions of the class. However, each class is composed of sections. Mom and partner will be doing some yoga together, we’ll then work on pain management and labor support techniques, then mom will enjoy pampering & massage from their partner, and we’ll end in a sweet couples resting pose while relaxing to a guided meditation. So while there will be pieces of the class that are not relevant to your experience (and we totally understand that may not be comfortable for you!),  the majority of the class isn’t vaginal birth specific. We leave it up to you to decide if this series will meet your needs. Please let us know if you have any further questions!
