Prenatal Yoga Practice
As relaxin, the hormone secreted during pregnancy relaxes the ligaments around the pelvis, you may feel unstable joints. We will use the asana practice of yoga to find relief from pain and tension by strengthening and lengthening your muscles and ligaments.
With the help of props, we will explore the therapeutic side of yoga with relaxation and breathing techniques. We will hold static poses to find lengthen and relax the body.
Self-myofascial release (SMR) is a practice that incorporates the use of specialized myofascial release balls to target the trigger points on the body, promoting a sense of mobility, release, and restructuring of fascia or connective tissue.
Fascia is one continuous connection of tissue that exists in the body from head to toe. It connects, protects, fills space, communicates, and interrelates to everything within the body. Fascia also has a tendency to get restricted or wound tight, and in some cases may even cause pain in the body. This can have many adverse effects. Mobility is the key to maintaining optimal health in our tissues. Whether or not you are pregnant, SMR improves range of motion and circulation, relieves pain, and encourages relaxation.
Course is taught in English.
