Deafhood Yoga celebrates the Circle of Life. Our unique Prenatal Yoga classes celebrate every Mother, their baby/babies and communities. We strive to make your Prenatal Yoga journey as comfortable as possible.
The eight classes include Pranayama/Breathing techniques to bring comfort and support you through contractions and to have a more positive delivery experience. We share Asanas/Poses that bring whole balance and alignment to the pelvis, pelvic floor with the intention of encouraging your baby into a more optimal birthing position. Relaxation takes place by applying our breathing to improve our sleep, reduce anxiety and increase the strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth. Meditation is a divine way to wrap our Prenatal Yoga classes to visualize a healthy, positive birth process together as a team unit with love, inner peace, and light.
All class recordings and content are available in Mighty Networks (MN) to review. Social networking with other Pregnant Mothers, Yoginis and Yogis is included in MN.
Yoga is 1% theory and 99% practice.
*Online classes are conducted through the ZOOM video platform. After registration, you will receive a ZOOM link that will be used every online class.
Prenatal yoga: What you need to know
Prenatal yoga can be a great way to prepare for childbirth. Find out if this type of prenatal exercise is right for you.
If you're pregnant and looking for ways to relax or stay fit, you might be considering prenatal yoga. But did you know that prenatal yoga might also help you prepare for labor and promote your baby's health?
Before you start prenatal yoga, understand the range of possible benefits, as well as what a typical class entails and important safety tips.
What are the benefits of prenatal yoga?
Much like other types of childbirth-preparation classes, prenatal yoga is a multifaceted approach to exercise that encourages stretching, mental centering and focused breathing. Research suggests that prenatal yoga is safe and can have many benefits for pregnant women and their babies.
Prenatal yoga can:
Reduce stress and anxiety
Increase the strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth
Decrease lower back pain, nausea, headaches and shortness of breath
Prenatal yoga can also help you meet and bond with other pregnant women and prepare for the stress of being a new parent.
What happens during a typical prenatal yoga class?
A typical prenatal yoga class might involve:
Breathing. You'll be encouraged to focus on breathing in and out slowly and deeply through the nose. Prenatal yoga breathing techniques might help you reduce or manage shortness of breath during pregnancy and work through contractions during labor.
Gentle stretching. You'll be encouraged to gently move different areas of your body, such as your neck and arms, through their full range of motion.
Postures. While standing, sitting or lying on the ground, you'll gently move your body into different positions aimed at developing your strength, flexibility and balance. Props — such as blankets, cushions and belts — might be used to provide support and comfort.
Cool down and relaxation. At the end of each prenatal yoga class, you'll relax your muscles and restore your resting heart rate and breathing rhythm. You might be encouraged to listen to your own breathing, pay close attention to sensations, thoughts and emotions, or repeat a mantra or word to bring about a state of self-awareness and inner calm.
