“Prenatal yoga is a wonderful way to put time aside for yourself and your baby”, Kevan de Haan says. “It is beneficial as it can physically and mentally prepare a mom-to-be for the birth of their baby while giving them the opportunity to make new friends who are going through a similar stage of life.”
Kevan de Haan has been teaching yoga in Cornwall for six years and has worked with expectant mothers in prenatal yoga classes for the past year. Many of her participants have taken classes with her for many months of their pregnancies.
Adele Perry has participated in Kevan de Haan’s prenatal yoga classes since September and is pregnant with her first child. She has been very happy with the classes. “I heard of the prenatal yoga class through a friend and thought that it would be great way to connect with other pregnant women”, Perry said. “Jordan knows what positions will relieve pain and stress from the pregnant woman’s body. I leave every session feeling so much better than I did when I got there!”
The free trial class and the next 8 week session of classes will be offered in March at the Ontario Early Years Centre, Cornwall site (550 9th Street East). Gentle postures, breath work, visualization and mediation will be introduced to improve flexibility, calm and confidence in preparation for labour and childbirth. Classes will enhance relaxation, comfort and enjoyment while helping expectant moms to stay in shape during pregnancy. No previous yoga experience is necessary but preregistration for the free trial and/or the 8 week session is required as space is very limited.
