Mother and Baby
You’re about to have a baby. Can you think of a better time to begin the practice of Yoga? After the pregnancy, could there be a more relaxing way to release tension, get back in shape and bond with your new baby? The Yoga programs at St. Jude Medical Center are taught by experienced instructors who are ready to help you as you take on one of life’s most important responsibilities.
Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga
Prenatal Yoga is designed to accommodate a mother’s changing needs throughout her pregnancy. Postures focus on developing strength and staying in shape. Focus on gentle stretches help promote relaxation and create a little more space for baby as her pregnancy progresses.
Breathing techniques promote delivery of oxygen to both mother and baby and the closing relaxation activities are excellent for release of any emotional or mental tension.
* Designed for those in 2nd or 3rd trimester *
