Movement is a crucial part of any healthy pregnancy. Prenatal yoga transforms traditional yoga postures for the specific needs of pregnancy through gentle movements. It also helps relieve tension and teaches you how to remain calm and balanced, important skills during labor and delivery. Whether this is your first experience with yoga or you're a long time yogi, the benefits will be felt immediately.
Check our Events page for prenatal yoga workshops which we offer quarterly through out the year, along with various other yoga workshops. Can’t wait to let your inner yogi thrive? We recommend Union Yoga in Monterey for its lovely ambience and great instructors.
