Why Prenatal Yoga?

Why Birthing Mama® Prenatal Yoga?

Bethany is a RYT500, RPYT Birthing Mama® Prenatal Yoga and Wellness teacher, and an Ayurvedic practitioner.

Whether it's a first time pregnancy or subsequent, Bethany recognizes the need of support during this magical, but highly sensitive time. Bringing this valuable information to expecting families has been a goal of hers since growing her own family.

Prenatal Yoga  is used to help calm your mind, easing anxiety and fear around pregnancy, birth, and motherhood.

Prenatal Yoga helps to cultivate intuition, empowerment, and inspiration to create a positive birth experience and connection to the women who have birthed before us and to the Divine.

Prenatal Yoga can ward off postpartum anxiety and depression using the wisdom of yoga practices and philosophies for daily living.

In addition to embodying the physical transformation that is taking place, prenatal yoga directly addresses common physical discomforts through postures that release, tone, and enliven muscles, ligaments, organs, and nerves.

Beyond the physical transformation, there is the emotional impact. Prenatal yoga supports your emotional well-being by bringing balance to your mind, deepening your perspective, and releasing emotional energy from your body's tissues. This is supported by postures and breathing techniques that help move energy, or prana, through the body.

Prenatal Yoga can help to embrace the spiritual transformation of a new human being -- mind, body, and soul -- being born within you. This journey invites you to explore deeper levels of the self.

Allow prenatal yoga to be one of the self-care practices to support pain relief, the release of tension, regulating emotions, and sense of peace of mind that can continue into postpartum and parenting. Prenatal yoga can help prepare you for the birth process and what support you will need postpartum.

 

This unique prenatal yoga can particularly help you navigate the transformation of pregnancy using Birthing Mama®, Embodyoga®, and influences from India, including Ayurveda. Bethany has lived and breathed the benefits of these principles through her own self-study and self-healing experiences.
