About the event
Saskia has taught prenatal yoga for over 20 years. She is passionate about teaching this specialized class. Just because we are pregnant doesn't mean we necessarily slow down! In these classes, students prepare for this sacred journey through pregnancy and plant the seeds for parenthood. Saskia has developed her class specifically to meet the needs and changes of the pregnant body. She holds a safe and sacred space for her students to connect with their growing baby and ever-changing bodies by integrating asana and restorative yoga into her classes.
Practicing prenatal yoga is associated with a range of physical and mental health benefits for expectant mothers, including boosting strength, improving flexibility and balance, and easing pregnancy-related discomforts. As important as moderate exercise is during pregnancy, knowing how to rest deeply and rejuvenate is equally essential. Saskia merges these two aspects into her prenatal classes to help prepare mamas-to-be for labor, delivery, and the critical first years of motherhood.
