Prenatal yoga will assist you in strengthening the uterus and pelvic muscles, improve circulation, aid in digestion, keep the spine healthy and increase overall comfort. It can also help alleviate many of the discomforts of pregnancy such as nausea, constipation, varicose veins, swelling, joint pain and sciatica. You will learn to use pranayama (breathwork) and meditative practices from yoga to reduce stress and prepare for labor/delivery. The class also provides space for you to connect with other expectant moms.

Postpartum Yoga - “REBUILD” Your Core Muscles

Wednesdays at 7:00pm

 

Registration is Required.
Please contact Deb: deb@bellypilates.com

Deb pic 3:1Post partum yoga is ideal for moms wanting to return to exercise in a safe and effective way. If you’ve had a low-risk pregnancy and an uncomplicated vaginal delivery, you can begin within 4 weeks of delivery. If you are among the 1 in 3 women who delivered your baby via C-section, you can begin within 6 weeks. Healing exercises for both Diastasis and C-Sections will be emphasized.

We will focus on REBUILDING the core muscles most affected by pregnancy and birth including: abdominals, pelvic floor, back and shoulder muscles. In this small group class (max 6 moms), you will receive nurturing attention so you can address individual needs, modify postures and carefully strengthen your internal corset.

Yoga complimented with other modalities will be performed to help you REBUILD your strength. We will also appropriately stretch tight areas most new moms experience, such as: neck, shoulders and hips from the hours spent sitting and nursing/feeding.

This small group class will foster a motherhood community, in which to share your “new mom” experiences, find support and resources. Pre-crawler Babies are ALWAYS welcome in class.

deb 3About Deb: 

Formerly a marine biologist, Debbie found yoga in 2008 when she was transitioning into the role of mothering two small children, trying to stay active and most importantly, remain calm doing it.

Taking her three years of experience and body awareness from private Pilates instruction with Kelly at Belly Pilates, where she learned techniques for healing the body postpartum, Debbie transitioned to Yoga, which provided a safe place to move, feel supported and also release stress and tension. When pregnant with her third baby in 2009 Debbie found her passion for prenatal yoga and the power of the breath to calm the mind.

Debbie began her training in 2009 with Dhyana Yoga (Ashtanga lineage, vinyasa) and followed it with an alignment based training in 2013 with Justicia DeClue and Zhenja La Rosa at Maha Yoga and Healing Arts. Through these trainings Debbie became empowered to share the profound wisdom of yogic philosophy with her students, taking a keen interest in helping new mothers feel strong, powerful and trusting in their pregnant bodies.  In 2013 Debbie completed her prenatal teacher training in two parts, first in New York City with Jennifer Pettit at Chandrakala Yoga and then with Sue Elkind of Dig Yoga in Lambertville, NJ.

In 2014, Debbie created Love Light Yoga to focus on teaching new mothers in the privacy of their home or in small group settings, how to feel mentally and physically empowered on their journey to motherhood and beyond.  Having labored and birthed three children naturally, Debbie uses her experience to speak to women about their innate strength and wisdom. Classes with Debbie inspire confidence, courage and promote connection between mothers and the miracle growing inside them.

Debbie currently lives in Merion Station, PA with her husband and three children. She lives each day with gratitude for the awareness that yoga has brought to her relationships and the incredibly positive effect it has had on her life.
