THE FUNDAMENALS OF YOGAMOMS
We start each class with “circle time,” where students introduce themselves, say how far along they are, and discuss any aches and pains they would like to address in class. Pregnancy and postpartum periods carry enormous physical and emotional changes; this bonding time creates a springboard for long lasting friendships among students.
Christine is a trained yoga instructor and educated midwife that has created a yoga practice that caters to the anatomical, hormonal, and muscular changes which occur normally in the pregnant body by creating sequences which lessen discomfort, so students feel better after each class. Classes also prepare the mother both physically (specifically with focus on proper pelvic alignment) and mentally for birth whether that be medicated, natural or cesarean.
