1) When is the best time to join your prenatal yoga series?
Truly, any time! People are welcome to join in the first trimester, second trimester, or even the last week of pregnancy. If your estimated due date is during a series, no problem! Pay a prorated series fee prior to the first class and then pay per class after 38 weeks gestation. For example, you are 38 weeks after the 4th class in a series. You would pay $20 x 4 on the first night and then pay $20 at the 5th class and $19 at the 6th class.
Keep in mind I am reserving a special spot in class just for you! :) Therefore, unfortunately, I can't allow refunds or discounts for missed classes due to vacations, previous, or unexpected commitments, etc.
2) What if I have never done yoga?
I have had students in class with no prior yoga experience and they have all enjoyed it. Classes are about much more than yoga! Build a community, challenge your body, learn something new. Each class is modified to be appropriate for each unique body.
3) I heard you talk about labor. Is this a childbirth education class?
Although I am a certified childbirth educator, the topics in one series may not cover all topics that a childbirth education class would cover. However, I do share resources, knowledge, and my experiences around pregnancy, childbirth, and parenthood in each yoga class. If you would like a more in depth childbirth education experience, let me know and we can explore whether an individualized birth prep consultation is right for you and your partner.
4) What should I bring to each class?
Bring something to drink (filtered water is available), a yoga mat or large towel, and wear comfortable clothing.
5) Is it possible to come to just one class rather than an entire 6-week series?
The intent of Empowered Pregnancy & Birth's prenatal yoga is to build connection with other pregnant people as well as with your body, baby, and breath while stretching, maintaining strength, and enhancing flexibility. Therefore, these prenatal yoga classes come in a series. It is encouraged to attend more than one series for more connection, confidence, and discussion of new topics in every class.
