Prenatal yoga can help you stay tone and strengthen your body, reduce stress, enhance sleep and relaxation, and prepare you for childbirth… and a healthy baby.
YCM prenatal classes use meditation and pranayama (breath work) for childbirth preparation, as well as asana (yoga poses) for strength and flexibility. Come prepared to calm your mind, and safely build strength in a class designed specifically for you! Join us for class at any time during your pregnancy. No yoga experience necessary. However, be sure to get your health care provider’s okay before you begin a prenatal yoga program.
Location: St. Louis Park studio

Yoga Bonding is a baby integrated yoga sequence that is a fun, uplifting way for moms (or caregivers) and their babies to build trust, confidence and love together.
The benefits for babies are wonderful; babies sleep better and often longer, have better digestion, are better adjusted, and happier! Yoga Bonding starts class with baby yoga, and then we do yoga for Mom’s with a sequence created specifically with mom’s postnatal needs in mind. Bring Baby along for a ride, as she/he becomes involved in parts of your practice.
Baby Yoga and massage fosters closeness between parents and their babies through touch and bonding opportunities. Babies benefit by learning to let go of stress, and calm. Parents improve confidence in understanding baby’s communication.
Everyone is welcome Moms, Dads, Partners, Grandparents and Nannies.
Join class when babies are about 4 to 6 weeks old or when you have permission from your caregiver to exercise. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring 2 blankets for baby.
Locations: St. Louis Park studio

Prenatal massage focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of the childbirth experience. This technique addresses the specific structural, physiological, and psychological discomforts of pregnancy, and uses bolsters to lift and support the mom so she is completely relaxed and comfortable. A great baby shower or postnatal present!
