Our Prenatal Yoga class begins with a 5 minute check in for each mom-to-be with time to share how you are feeling, and any questions or concerns you are having about yoga at this point in your pregnancy. This time provides education and builds a sense of community which is so important during pregnancy and after your baby arrives. Gentle breathing practices follow that help moms learn to regulate their breathing throughout their pregnancy and in preparation for birth. Postures are adapted for growing bellies and other physical changes and focus on gently opening the hips and pelvis as well as building the strength needed in the low body for giving birth. The shoulders, neck and chest are also addressed, helping to keep them relaxed and open. After the more active poses, restful, supported postures follow, giving you time to relax, be present and connect with your sweet baby growing inside of you. Throughout these prenatal classes you will learn how to create and maintain a meditative focus which is so important in childbirth. Each class ends with an Om, the sound that represents all creation, and Namaste, the Sanskrit word that means, “I honor the Light within you.”

Laura believes yoga to be a powerful healing and strengthening practice. An aunt brought yoga into Laura’s life as an adolescent and the practice has helped her find solace and peace amidst various developmental evolutions. The connection between mind and body wellness became apparent especially during college as her studies in psychology overlapped with her deepening study and practice of yoga. She became a certified yoga teacher (200 hour) in 2010 and has furthered her studies through Principle-Based Partner Yoga, YogaCalm, and Integrative Movement Therapy trainings since then. Currently, as a Master’s level Marriage, Couple, and Family Therapist, she clinically integrates yogic practice into various mental health settings. Wherever she teaches, she brings attention and detail to both internal and external facets of practice, on and off the mat. In her classes she seeks to hold an exploratory space where students may compassionately connect to themselves and be curious about what they find. “Words cannot convey the power of yoga – it must be experienced.” – BKS Iyengar
