Zen Mama-Prenatal Yoga

Zen Mama-Prenatal Yoga

Course Description

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR REGISTRATION IS NOT CONFIRMED UNTIL PAYMENT IS MADE.  REGISTRATIONS ARE CONFIRMED ON A “FIRST COME” BASIS ONCE PAYMENT IS RECEIVED.

Class are held the first 4 Tuesdays each month.  No classes on major holidays.  Experienced prenatal yoga instructors facilitate these 60-minute classes. 

Prenatal Yoga classes are more popular than ever.  When paired with a cardiovascular exercise such as walking, yoga can be an ideal way to stay in shape during your pregnancy.

This age-old practice keeps you limber, tones your muscles, and improves your balance and circulation, with little, if any, impact on your joints.   Yoga is also beneficial because it helps you learn to breath deeply and relax, which primes you for labor and childbirth by training you to stay calm when you need it most.

Additionally, rigorous studies have found scientific proof that yoga helps the body deal with stress by slowing heart and breathing rates and lowering blood pressure-which can benefit new moms after the baby's born, too.

It is recommended that you wear comfortable clothing suitable for exercise.  You may bring your own yoga mat or use one supplied by the hospital.  Please bring a water bottle with you to class.  Check with your doctor before beginning any exercise program.

Cancellation

West Penn Hospital reserves the right to cancel a class at any time.  If it is necessary for us to cancel classes, you will be contacted. 

Refund Policy

Refunds will be granted in cases of premature delivery or medical complications.  A refund for non-medical reasons must be requested at least three weeks prior to the beginning of the class.  There is a $10 processing fee for refunds.
