BENEFITS OF PRENATAL YOGA
A prenatal yoga class can offer you a quiet respite to slow down, connect with your baby and honor the changes of your pregnancy. Students move mindfully through modified yoga postures, restorative poses, practice breath-work, pelvic-floor exercises and explore a variety of relaxation techniques.
In combination these techniques will help to strengthen and tone the body, alleviate discomforts ad prepare you for your labor and birth.
WHY SHOULD I PRACTICE YOGA WITH MY BABY?
Busy new parents can attend classes with their newborns while learning how to integrate their babies into an evolving yoga practice. In Julias Yoga classes, you will practice exercises to help encourage infant development, bond with your baby and help to build greater strength, flexibility and body awareness.
Postpartum Parent -- Om Baby yoga classes are designed to address the physical issues of the postpartum body, focusing on strengthening core muscles, releasing tight shoulder and back muscles and re-balancing the body and mind.
A Parent-baby class also allows space for you to nurse, rest, and tend to your newborn.
WHAT IS A DANCING DOULA?
The spiritual, emotional and physical journey of a new parent is a powerful transition period which greatly benefits from the support, wisdom and nurturing of those around her. Motherhood and parenthood is a constantly changing dance that requires strength and balance. I have chosen the name "Dancing Doula" because of my close connection to dance, birth and motherhood . I am passionate about guiding and supporting new parents as they find their own way with flexibility, grace, energy and compassion.
