Prenatal yoga classes | Sangha Yoga

prenatal-yoga-class-KalamazooWhen several maternity clients raved to me about their love of the prenatal yoga class they were taking, I decided I needed to check it out. I’m so glad I did, because I discovered a wonderful resource for pregnancy services in Kalamazoo. Sangha Yoga is located in downtown Kalamazoo, right in the Mall Plaza. Although it’s in a convenient spot right in town, its serene and welcoming atmosphere makes you feel like you’re getting away from the busyness of life for a bit.

Chelsie, the prenatal yoga class instructor, is warm and friendly and has a passion for supporting women through their pregnancies and preparing them for childbirth. She’s been teaching these classes for 4 years and has a wealth of experience.  She believes that prenatal yoga gives expectant moms the tools they need to prepare themselves for the journey they’re taking, the confidence to make the best choices for themselves and knowledge to learn to take care of themselves.  The prenatal yoga class focuses on mom and baby, using open postures and modified yoga poses. It emphasizes preparing for delivery, strengthening kegel muscles and relieving stress.

A nice fringe benefit of attending the class is meeting other expectant moms, and that can create a close knit group of women. Chelsie says that some groups continue to meet outside the class after their babies are born.

The class continues after your baby is born, too. First there’s a time of learning how to stretch with your baby, then there’s a time of stretching and baby massage. Stretching and massaging are wonderful tools to use every day with your baby.

Each semester of prenatal yoga classes runs for six weeks, and can be taken by women in any stage of pregnancy. It’s best to start the class at the beginning of a semester, but you’re welcome to drop in for a class once to check it out. Class size ranges from 10-20 women. Classes meet on Monday evenings.

If you’re expecting a baby, prenatal yoga classes have so many benefits to offer. Visit Sangha Yoga for more information- you’ll be glad you did!
