A complimentary mind-body approach to fitness, pregnancy and childbirth.

The Whole BirthTM Yoga system combines hatha yoga postures with the art of mindfulness. The classes combine postures, meditation, self inquiry and group support. Regular attendance will allow mothers to feel the incredible benefits of yoga, as well as to understand and trust their ability to nurture and birth their babies.
