“Prenatal Yoga was the nicest time of the week, when I could feel completely comfortable being pregnant with no self-consciousness, surrounded by other pregnant women. I always left the class with a sense of feeling strong both in body and spirit which helped me cope with many of the strains of pregnancy. Also, I loved sharing both joys and problems with the other women in the class which helped me feel like I was never alone.” Diane Gareau, mom to Abby & Alec
Location: Classes at held at Every Day Sacred Centre, Lower Level of the River Heights Shopping Mall, corner of Regina Ave and Montague St. Map

“I wanted to thank you for the prenatal yoga class. That was the first time that I got to focus on my new baby. I am so busy with Emma that I have not that a moment to stop and think about the miracle that is growing inside me. Yoga class gave me that time to reflect on this little miracle and how blessed I am to have an amazing daughter and another little one growing inside.”
Thanks Serena Rath, mom to Emma

“Prenatal yoga helped me to connect with my baby by allowing me to relax and open myself up to my baby -feeling like I am communicating with him in my belly through the chants and the exercises. I felt like I was telling my baby how much I already loved him by taking care of body, taking care of him – physically, and also taking care of myself mentally. I loved being pregnant and I felt great inner peace. Prenatal yoga enhanced these feelings in me.”
