Yoga and Fitness Classes

There are many benefits for you and your baby when you incorporate a yoga and fitness practice into your life! Your balance increases and your posture improves, as you become stronger and more flexible, especially in your hips where it is needed the most.
Building strength and flexibility, while relieving the aches and pains associated with your changing body.

Being active can also reduce anxiety and increase your confidence.
By connecting you to your breath and your body, you can bond with your baby and prepare for birth.
Yoga also teaches our body how to rest on demand, a skill every new parent needs.

The best part of The Nurturing Nest yoga and fitness classes is building a community of people who have babies so you can share and connect with each other.

 
*Childcare is offered for all classes held Mon-Fri
