Ma Yoga creates an appropriate environment for the developing mother to connect and bond with her child deeply and intuitively. Yoga poses (asanas) specially designed for pregnancy cultivate the moment-to-moment awareness that prepares the ground for birthing, mothering and other challenges of prenatal life. Supportive breath work (pranayama) and vocal exercises are some of the tools that help women cope with the approaching intensity of labor and childbirth. A balanced spectrum of breathing, warm-ups and asanas are included in each class. By cultivating mindfulness and awareness in the moment and participating in a community of mothers to be, a woman can begin to prepare for this exciting transformation in life.
