All of Blossom's prenatal classes are open to postpartum moms who would like to take a break from caring for their babies and continue their yoga practice in a safe, familiar environment. The classes listed here are particularly suited to meet the needs of postpartum and prenatal moms simultaneously.
Fridays, noon: Jeanna
Physical Intensity Level: Medium
Community Level: High
Styles: Hatha-flow, Whole Birth Yoga
Labor is an athletic event and prenatal yoga can be thought of as training. In her Friday class, Jeanna combines prenatal education with a strength-building practice. Poses and movement to support optimal fetal positioning and comfort during pregnancy and labor are highlighted. Discussion on pre and postnatal topics during the practice is welcome and encouraged. Pelvic floor awareness, mindfulness meditation, mild vinyasa, and practice to upbeat music is included in a typical class. This class is appropriate for all levels and most students will feel physically challenged.
Wednesdays, 7:00pm: Mia
Physical Intensity Level: Low-Medium
Community Level: Medium
After a long day, it can be a challenge to let go of the busyness and settle into a restful night. Gentle yoga provides a wonderful transition for expectant and new mothers. Mia's Wednesday evening class combines slow steady work in the asanas as a way to begin clearing the mind to prepare for meditation. Class will begin with seated breathing, move into warming up the body to release physical tension and increase circulation, and conclude with traditional restorative postures and mindfulness practice. Mothers looking for a gentle, meditative practice will benefit from this class.

To further help you identify which classes will best suit your needs, we offer the following key:
Physical Intensity Level: "High" indicates a vigorous, athletic, physically strenuous workout that will make most people sweat. "Low" indicates a gentle, restful, restorative workout, with the emphasis of the practice on relaxing.
Community Level: "High" indicates that class begins with a group check-in and conversation, questions, and discussion is invited throughout the practice. Topics are generally related to pregnancy and birth, and may include other topics as well, as guided by students. The use of partner poses is factored in as well. "Low" indicates that conversation is limited to a brief check-in at the beginning of class and the practice invites the student to look "inward."
Styles: Indicates the styles of yoga or other philosophies that influence the practices of the class. The teacher may have specific training or certification in these styles.
