Prepare your mind, body and spirit for motherhood.
During pregnancy your body goes through many changes, which creates stress on you mentally and physically. A way to maintain a healthy mind and body is with prenatal yoga. Prenatal yoga focuses on poses for pregnant women in order to increase strength and flexibility. It also helps to develop proper breathing and relaxation techniques, which facilitates an easier and more comfortable labour.
