Yoga is a perfect fit for pregnancy, It helps prepare the body for birth and helps you recover afterward.
With regular yoga practice, you will strengthen and stretch your muscles, preparing your body for birth. Creating alignment through the body to aid in proper fetal positioning for a smooth quick labour. You will also improve postural alignment, helping to prevent backache due to the added weight of the baby and larger breasts. Other physical benefits include better circulation and breathing. Through practicing yoga and meditation, you will improve your focus and learn to relax during labour as well as to cope with any stress that arises, whether during pregnancy or after the baby is born.

Vinyasa (Flow) Yoga
Yin Yoga has the same goals and objectives as any other school of yoga; however, Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice.
Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.
While initially, this style of yoga can seem quite boring, passive, or soft, yin practice can be quite challenging due to the long duration of the poses. We can remain in the postures anywhere from one to twenty minutes! Yin and yang tissues respond quite differently to being exercised. You need to experience this to really know what Yin Yoga is all about. After you have experienced it, even just once, you will realize that you have been doing only half of the asana practice.
Please note: Yin Yoga is not restorative yoga. Like all yoga practices, if the tissues you are targeting for exercise are damaged in some way, please give yourself a chance to heal before resuming your regular practice.

Yoga For Fertility
Yoga for fertility can greatly increase your chances of getting pregnant because it increases relaxation, blood flow to the reproductive organs (improving egg and sperm quality) and creates a sense of peace and well being. Executing specific yoga for fertility poses will definitely help you conceive faster. Also, once pregnant, yoga can help you through your pregnancy increase flexibility and tone your muscles to prepare you for childbirth.
Yoga for fertility is mostly recommended to women, but very few know that this form of exercise can actually increase sperm quality, sperm count and sperm motility in men. Yoga for men helps decrease stress levels that affects male erectile dysfunction and impotence. Practicing yoga is beneficial to both partners when trying to conceive.
As infertility is a sensitive issue, this class creates a place for friendship, support and communication with others facing the same issues.
This class is also great if you are newly pregnant and have a history of miscarriage. Gentle relaxed, movements to help de-stress and tools to help with past trauma, current fears and create and sustain a healthy atmosphere for development.
Registration with your partner is encouraged but not necessary for participation. Partners are HALF PRICE!

This class invites students to explore yoga at their own pace while setting poses into proper alignment. Self awareness and self-acceptance are the keys to finding the balance between two much and too little effort in each pose. Chair yoga is an integrated and holistic popular practice designed to meet the needs of body types that are challenging (frozen shoulder) to those being challenged (body building). This popular practice offers modifications to meet individual needs through positioning the body, focusing the mind, and calming the breath. Deep relaxation is the rewarding end to this class, through a lengthy Shavasana, or deep relaxation pose.
