The practice of yoga is known to enhance awareness of the body and its dramatic changes during pregnancy and after birth. Being aware of the body's inner works will allow you to more easily relax and surrender to the power of labor. Your relaxation will decrease your pain and tension, and thereby increase your level of confidence and your body's efficiency. Yoga helps realign your body with the forces of gravity, constantly shifting during pregnancy, so that life can be experienced not only with more strength, but with a sense of dignity and delight. Each class will include a "check-in," and finish with a relaxation/visualization. Mondays 12-1:15pm; Tuesdays 10:30-11:15pm; Wednesdays 12-1:15pm; Thursdays 6:30-8pm; Fridays 12-1:15pm; Saturdays 9-10:30am, Sundays 9-10:30 (Combo with pre/postnatal).
r> Mom and Baby Yoga:
Blossom's Mom-Baby yoga classes are a very comfortable, supportive environment where moms can meet other women, enjoy special times with their babies, and experience the benefits of yoga without worrying about babies "bothering" others. These classes have their own special rhythm: moms and babies bond (and bend), do a bit of massage and exercises for the baby, moms check in with each other and support each other, there is some breathing and toning, yoga for the moms, yoga for moms and babies together, an adorable rhythmic yet calming dance for moms with babies in arms, and a lullaby at the end to help calm the babies for their trip home. Mondays 1:30- 2:45pm and Fridays 10:15- 11:30am.
Mom and Toddler Yoga :
Blossom's Mom & Toddler Yoga class is perfect for you and your mobile baby! Join Linda Adleson for yoga postures which will include your child (and some just for you), a little meditation (yes, it's possible even with a toddler in tow!), some singing, games, and time to connect with other moms. As you know, toddlers are unpredictable- and so will be the flow of the class, following the needs of our children. This is a great class for second-time expectant moms, and younger siblings are welcome, too. Tuesdays 11:3am - 12:45pm and Tuesdays 3:30pm - 4:45pm.
All classes held at Blossom Birth located at 299 S. California Ave in Palo Alto, CA. Send us an email or give us a call at 650-321-2326 for more information about classes. To register or purchase a class card, call, email or visit us online at www.blossombirth.org
