Fitness, Yoga, and More!
There are many different fitness options for pregnant women. As part of a healthy lifestyle, NOVA Natural Birth Center midwives recommend their clients stay active throughout their pregnancies. Whether from a structured class like prenatal Yoga, Pilates, Zumba, free-form working out at the gym, or even just walking, taking time to include fitness in your lifestyle can contribute to better circulation, appropriate weight gain, and a greater sense of wellbeing.
Yoga can teach you how breathe and relax in a way that will help you adjust to the physical demands of pregnancy, labor, and birth. By centering and focusing on your breathing, you can improve your quality of sleep, reduce stress, increase flexibility, and decrease aches and pain.
NOVA Natural Birth Center and Beloved Yoga in partnership are proud to offer Prenatal Yoga at the Birth Center. Come experience a gentle and safe practice that offers the tools and techniques of yoga to provide an optimal, joy-filled journey. This supportive class for expecting Moms is designed to alleviate common complaints of pregnancy and develop health and well-being. Through community dialogue, yoga postures, breath work , meditation, and relaxation, you will learn tools to support you during pregnancy, labor and delivery. Join us as you bond with your baby, and connect with other expecting Moms. The class is open to expecting moms in any stage of pregnancy. Yoga experience is not required.
