Pre-Natal Yoga |  Mom & Baby Yoga | Restore Your Core (Post-natal Fusion)

Pre-natal Yoga – Pre-registered series

Pre-natal yoga is a great way to connect with other pregnant women and to stay active during all stages of pregnancy in a safe and supportive environment. Our prenatal classes are designed to strengthen the muscles used in labour, to stretch muscles that get stiff and sore from lack of mobility, and to encourage you to relax and unwind. Take care of yourself, bond with your baby, and learn breathing techniques to help you throughout the labour process.

Prenatal yoga at Union is offered as a  pre-registered course, with drop-ins allowed if space permits. Pre-registration is strongly recommended.

Upcoming series: August 1 – Sept 12, 2018. Limited to 13 participants.

Pre-natal classes are open to pregnant women at all stages of pregnancy. Classes lead by Nicky Wright, experienced prenatal yoga teacher. No experience required to join this class. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to send us an email or call the studio at 416-516-0909.

Cost for 7-week series: $119 + HST ($ 17 per class). Members 50% off.

Cost to drop in class, space permitting: $22 + HST.

Post Natal Yoga – Caregiver and Baby

Home with a new baby? Bring your little one over to Union and treat yourself to a yoga class in the company of other new parents, lead by an experienced instructor. Yoga can be a great way to begin safely strengthening, stretching, taking care of the body and mind following pregnancy and labour, and provides a safe space for new parents to connect and find community.

No experience required. Nursing, bottle feeding, diapering, crying, giggling, and everything else that comes with the territory of babies is welcome and expected.

This series is for caregivers who have recently welcomed a new baby into their lives (Moms, Dads, supportive partners).

Given that our space is not very large, we ask that only pre-crawling babies attend. Women who are post-partum are recommended to receive clearance from their health care provider for exercise before participating.

Our current series is Wednesdays 11 am until July 18 and has drop-in space available.

The next series will run August 8 – September 12, at 11 am. Registration is now open.

Pre-registration for full session required. Full refund available 48 hours before course start date. No refunds once course has begun and missed classes do not carry over.  If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to send us an email or call the studio at 416-516-0909.

Cost: $108 + HST.  (50% off for members)

Restore Your Core – Post-natal Fusion

The effects of pregnancy and birth, not to mention the physical demands of motherhood can leave women feeling weak, disconnected and in pain.

This 6-week series is specifically designed to help women reconnect and re-strengthen their bodies in a safe and effective way after birth.

Join Laura Wood, prenatal and postnatal yoga+pilates teacher, Core Confidence Specialist and doula, as she offers women a holistic and whole body approach to postpartum re-training.

Classes focus on restoring function to the deep core muscles and abdominals as well as focusing on posture, breathing and functional movements so women feel more supported in their every day lives. Each class draws on yoga, pilates and corrective exercises to provide a balanced movement practice that releases over worked muscles while restoring core function and overall strength so mothers feel stronger and more energized.

Participants will receive weekly follow up emails with exercises and educational tips to help them feel inspired and confident as they restrengthen and restore their bodies after birth.

This series is for women who are at least 6 weeks post partum and have received clearance from their health care provider for exercise. All babies up to early crawlers welcome.

Pre-registration for full session required. Full refund available 48 hours before course start date. No refunds once course has begun and missed classes do not carry over.  If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to send us an email or call the studio at 416-516-0909.
