Yoga Designed With You In Mind
Your pregnancy is a special time in your life, so why would you choose something other than a special style of prenatal yoga? Jennifer More developed Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga during her own pregnancy when she realized that all styles of prenatal yoga offered at the time could not adequately prepare her physically and mentally for labor. She wanted a yoga practice that specifically served the needs of the pregnant woman: one that vigorously prepares women for the marathon event of childbirth, while helping women discover their power and inner strength needed during this transformative period in their lives.
Jennifer More found these empowering and strengthening qualities in the soft flow of Vinyasa Yoga. She adapts Vinyasa Yoga for the unique needs of pregnant women, providing a system that works with your body without sacrificing the intensity that you need to prepare for childbirth. By learning to link your breath and movements in a constant flow, you’ll greatly increase your ability to work with your body during labor and childbirth, encouraging a faster and more enjoyable birth experience.
How Can Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga Change Your Life?
In her experience attending nearly 450 births as a doula, Jennifer More has witnessed the powerful impact that Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga can have on a pregnant woman’s health, wellbeing and confidence. The strengthening that occurs in your yoga practice prepares the necessary muscles for labor and childbirth, often resulting in shorter labor, less pain, and fewer interventions, including a decrease in the need for Cesarean sections.
Pregnancy is a transformative milestone in your life, and Jennifer More can guide you the entire way through her Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga system. You’ll get accustomed to using your breath while your muscles are working and contracting, which will help you stay more comfortable and relaxed during labor. Practicing Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga gives you access to the confidence you need during your journey into motherhood, and help you discover your own inner power and strength.
Listen To Your Body
Jennifer More’s Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga system give you many ways to listen to what your body is telling you. The program is designed to be accessible to pregnant women at any stage, from the minute you find out you’re pregnant right up until you give birth. Her Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga features modifications for each trimester, allowing you to not only find a level of intensity that agrees with your body, but also address the changes occurring every day. Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga will empower you to have a connected, strong, and healthy pregnancy, and the best possible transition into motherhood.
