In brief: Prenatal yoga

Prenatal Yoga will teach techniques (ujjayi) to enable you to breath deeply & to relax.
This is calming & will help face the demands of labor & delivery. It works to maintain flexibility, muscle tone, balance & circulation. Poses used are safe & designed to have low joint impact. Best when combined with low -impact aerobic activity.
