Prenatal Yoga 

Prenatal Yoga weaves together yoga movement, breath, childbirth education & body awareness. Here, you'll deepen the connection to your body, mind, and growing baby in classes especially crafted for your needs throughout all trimesters - and no prior yoga experience is necessary! During a prenatal yoga session, we will:

  • Address any aches, and apply therapeutic applications to support your changing body (i.e. alleviating nausea, backache, swelling, round ligament pain, and more)

  • Move through poses and breathing techniques that prepare your body for labor, strengthen and lengthen muscles, optimize the pelvic floor, improve digestion and circulation, exercise the spine, and increase overall comfort

  • Briefly explore themes for each class, including laboring positions, hormones involved in birth, building a team of support, and more

 
Thanks for all of your prenatal support! I found the mental mantras and breathing techniques to be very helpful.

I was having a lot of lower back and sciatic/SI joint pain. My pain was so bad that a random wrong step shot sharp pain up my back and getting dressed was sometimes so very hard to do. I randomly searched for prenatal yoga and happened to find Leanne at Yoga Dear. By the second class that pain was GONE.

Not only did yoga help my physical symptoms, but helped mentally as well. It was nice to be in class with other pregnant women where we could all talk about our fears, first time mom worries and get advice from the mothers in the class who were having their second, third or even fourth child. It was also helpful that Leanne herself had only just given birth. I actually used the techniques we were taught in labor!

Postnatal Yoga 

Postnatal Yoga will re-acquaint you with your body after undergoing an emotionally and physically transformative experience (ahem childbirth). Learn how to safely restore your core. Practice exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor. Open up the shoulders and chest after so much baby carrying and feeding. Enjoy your body in classes focused on healing after birth, building strength in a low impact way, gentle stretching, and even time with baby if you so choose.

Babies are welcome! While POSTnatal is focused on mamas, there will be interaction with babies. Feel free to nurse, rock, sway your baby throughout the practice. Suitable for new mamas 6-8+ weeks postpartum.
