6 Benefits of taking Post and Prenatal Yoga Classes
Comments Off on Discover Post and Prenatal Yoga Classes in Abbotsford

Last week I had the pleasure to be a part of a special mamas event. Together we hosted a group of mamas, who were either pregnant or recently given birth. The goal was to bless these mamas and share knowledge and information around the post and prenatal yoga classes that Haven Yoga and Wellness offers in Abbotsford, BC.

From the moment I walked into Haven Yoga and Wellness I could tell it was a place I wanted to be. The space filled with natural light and the staff graciously greeted me with a warm welcome. I was excited to experience and learn more about their Post and Prenatal Yoga Classes. Right away I could tell that Rebecca, founder of Haven Yoga and Wellness, cares so much for community. Her welcoming and open personality made me feel comfortable and so excited to begin our class.

The afternoon started and ended with some socializing. We had a table decorated for the mamas to enjoy some healthy snacks and sweet treats. We really wanted to make these ladies feel special as their bodies are doing and have recently done some amazing things for their babies.

At the start of the yoga class Rebecca shared with us all how much she loves teaching post natal yoga. She said that it is so different then any other class as your babies are able to be present. This different dynamic is fun and so inviting for mamas. After just having a baby up until they are one year old you can bring your baby along with you. Most of the kids lay down beside their mamas while they practiced yoga, while other ones were more mobile and ventured around the room. The kids flocked to Rebecca as well, there is no doubt they also sensed her truly warm and welcoming personality.

There are so many benefits that come from practicing yoga both post and prenatal. Here are some key areas that you could benefit from by attending.

6 Benefits of Practicing Yoga Pre and Postnatal | Haven Yoga and Wellness, Abbotsford, BC

  1. Beginners Welcome

    You don’t have to have a background or and experience with yoga to attend pre or post natal classes, you just have to be willing to try. Any level of experience is welcome and encouraged as everyone is at the same place of getting to know our new bodies.

  2. Build + Rebuild Strength & Stamina

    Prenatal yoga focuses on building strength in all the right places for labour. Labour requires so much strength and stamina as well as learning to relax and breath while holding a certain position, perfect training for your upcoming delivery.

    Postnatal yoga classes help women regain strength and energy that may have been lost during pregnancy. With a focus on specifically rebuilding strength in the abdomen, back and pelvic muscles which are often left weak and strained.

  3. Release Tension

    During pregnancy and after baby causes the body to experience a lot of tension build up. These classes are designed to release tension throughout the shoulders and neck, opening up the chest. This will leave mama feeling much more comfortable and less stressed.

  4. Prepare the Body for Birth

    During your prenatal yoga class the certified instructor will lead you through poses, guilded relaxation and controlled breathing that prepare your body and mind for birth.

  5. Community Support

    Classes will also address common issues and concerns that may arise in this new chapter of life. Rebecca is passionate about each woman (and man) that comes to practice at her studio. She has an evident passion for supporting moms and creating a space that is accepting and comfortable.

  6. Babies are Welcome

    You are encouraged the bring your babies to your post natal class. It is important to have a comfortable place that allows you to focus on yourself without having to leave your baby behind. Rebecca is often found multi-tasking, teaching and baby holding. This gives mamas have the opportunity to focus on themselves. (Ideal for babies aged 6 weeks and 1 year)

  7. Connect With Your Body

    Rebecca said, practicing yoga pre and post natal allows you to “connect with your old body under new circumstances.” There is so much change that comes the moment your body conceives. Feeling connected to yourself from the start of your pregnancy, through birth and after is so important and rewarding for your own well being.

  • Got to hang with some goats and do a little toga today, with about 400 other people. Have you tried goat yoga? Would you??
  • There’s some new faces around here and it’s been a while since I did a little intro, an about me per se... just a little bit more random.

1. I’ve lived in the same town my whole life. Some may think it’s boring.. I’d call it loyal 😅 .. either way, I know a lot about Abbotsford.
2. If you hold your hand up, palm facing away from you. Pull your thumb back and see how far you can go. Mine can touch the back of my arm, it’s forever been my “talent”.
3. It’s been 5 years (almost to the day) since I started my blog. Growing up I wanted to be a nurse, then went to school to be a police officer, changed gears into business and marketing, graduated with graphic design and its led me to hear. I never had big goals or felt like I was on the right path, but motherhood and this space has brought me all the feels.
4. We’ve been looking for land to grow some flowers of our own. My husband grew up on a flower farm (both the peonies and iris’ pictured are from their farm), property prices can just go ahead and come down a little now.
5. I don’t know if the feeling of being done is for real.. like we feel like we are done having kids but I’d be fibbing if I said it doesn’t come to mind every now and again.

That’s all for now friends. Share a little something about you below — say hi if you are new hear and thanks for reading til the end 🥰🙌🏻
  • Throwing it back to the other day when I went for an evening dip with my beaver @float.eh — it was such a hoot heading to the beach with @juliechristine_xo and gave me a peek into how much fun this summer is going to be.⠀ ⠀
#ad As you can see these aren’t your typical floaties... or should I say @float.eh ’s 😉 They are proudly Canadian, made with quality in mind. You gotta check out their website and see what other fun Canadian designs they have. [ go to float-eh.ca or see my story highlights for the link ] 🇨🇦
  • “When’s the last time you did something for the first time?” Those were words spoken to our group before starting our Tough Mudder course this past weekend in Whistler. Holy moly guys, I was nervous getting started on that course. Let’s just say... nervous shits are real 😅😂🙊 but that’s what makes it so great. Doing something that literally scares the shit outta you. We all pushed through, all 16km and 25 obstacles and it was FUN, hard but really freaking fun. Even though I’m hobbling around today, dang foot cramp (and literally sore all over) I’m so pumped on doing something new, pushing myself and having such an amazing group of friends tackle it together.

PS our men of tough mudder not pictured but SO equally appreciated.

  • Opened up my second Maple Box today and loving the natural and organic products that I am able to discover. The @hollowtree1987 candle and @sealuxe scrub are two of my favourites already.

I’ve loved how each box has introduced me to both self care and wellness products focused on creating healthier lifestyles. Head to @maplemagazinecanada to discover more info on ordering for yourself. Spring box available, while supplies last (and last I heard it was limited) #ad #maplemagazine #mapleboxcanada
