Prenatal Yoga: Birthlight Yoga Classes by Urban Ashram



Yoga is a technique that enables people to connect with their bodies, still the mind and be one with the spirit.

When a woman conceives she starts a wonderful journey and will encounter a lot of changes physically, emotionally and spiritually in this new phase of her life.  Prenatal yoga is a wonderful tool to accompany the soon-to-be mom every step of the way from conception to birth and through the postnatal weeks that follow.

Birthlight yoga classes believe each pregnancy is special and unique. All of the classes and sequences are carefully modified to suit each and everyone who comes to class. Whether you are an experienced yogini or one who has never tried yoga before, you are invited to attend and benefit from them. By being in touch with your body and keeping it fit and strong with a safe practice that promotes relaxation, you are able to cope with any changes that come with your pregnancy.

Through active and dynamic movement, relaxation and meditation, you also start to bond and connect with your baby even before they are born!

Birthlight yoga aim to create a space in their class where they celebrate the joy of this very special time of growth and transformation.
