Yin yoga is a meditative practice that allows your body to become comfortable in a pose without doing any work (strength). It is also called Taoist yoga and focuses on lengthening the connective tissues within the body. It is meant to compliment Yang yoga or muscle-forming yoga practices.
If Yang is active, then Yin is passive, meaning the muscles are allowed to relax with gravity and rest. This is usually performed with the assistance of props, and there is little to no music in the class.
Prenatal yoga focuses on positions that are specifically designed for pregnant women’s bodies. Common positions in regular yoga—such as those where your feet are spread far apart—may be too stressful for your joints and pelvic area when you’re expecting. As your baby grows, there’s a lot more weight pushing down on your bladder and pelvis. Pregnancy hormones also loosen your ligaments, making joint and bone problems (especially in the pubic bone) a source of discomfort. In addition to modifying positions for pregnancy, prenatal yoga also emphasizes breathing, stretching, and strengthening moves that help your body prepare for labor.

Postnatal Yoga classes will help you recover from birth more harmoniously, release the pains you might be experiencing, and get back in touch with your vital energy, core strength, and inner balance. In these postnatal yoga classes, I will guide you through exercises to gently work on the perineum and strengthen your deep abdominal muscles.
Mom & Baby Yoga
The intention in postnatal yoga is to help women strengthen their back, abdominal, and pelvic floor muscles, release tension in the shoulders and neck muscles, decrease stress, and promote inner calm. Classes use asana (postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises) to tone from the inside out, while giving time to bond with their babies, as dedicated games and movements with the little ones are integrated.
