Therapeutic Prenatal Yoga

Why Do Yoga During Pregnancy?

Pregnant women who practice yoga :

  • Improve their labour and delivery outcomes
  • Reduce their perceived pain, stress, anxiety sleep disturbances
  • Lessen their risk of premature birth, and
  • Enjoy shorter labor duration

Program Details

The Prenatal Yoga Program will consist of both strengthening and releasing postures, together with breathing techniques and relaxation time. The intention is to create a practice to nurture and prepare your body through the seasons of pregnancy, and to help you feel good moving your body. Small class sizes will allow for personalized modifications and guidance.

A new prenatal session at Ottawa Collaborative Care Centre is due to begin in January, 2018. Stay tuned for dates/times – to be added soon!
