Yoga programs for moms to be, caregivers and expecting families
We offer regular six-week series prenatal yoga classes. Pre-registration is required.
Each class begins with a roundtable where we take time for discussion and friendship. This is an opportunity for each mother-to-be to talk about how she is feeling and ask any questions. There is a special camaraderie and closeness that comes during this time and most women find the support to be invaluable.
The discussion is followed by meditation to quiet the mind and bring focus to the body and the woman’s growing baby. Then we move in to breath-work, stretching, strength building, and balancing postures that help to prepare the body and mind for the process of giving birth. Each class is a unique experience tailored to all stages of pregnancy. We finish the yoga session with deep rest and relaxation.
Baby & Me
A great way to connect! We offer regular four-week series for moms, dads, and other infant caretakers. Pre-registration is required.
This is a practice to enhance your sense of wellbeing, connect with your body, gain strength and flexibility and connect with your child. If children/babies are willing we will give them gentle massage and movement to facilitate their development. Babies and tots also enjoy seeing and playing with one another. Join the community of other growing families. Babies must be at least 8 weeks to 1 year old, or walking.
I discovered Blackbird Wellness during the beginning of my pregnancy when I was looking for a local prenatal yoga class. I’ve truly enjoyed working with Heather over the last several months, and her class has been invaluable to me – I’ve been amazed by the physical and mental benefits of practicing yoga, as well as the relationships I’ve built with fellow participants. When I discovered they offer massage, it was the cherry on top! Jen has been wonderful to work with, and has helped me stay comfortable during the last few months of my pregnancy. Thank you ladies!
The wealth of resources available at Blackbird Wellness extends far beyond what I had expected, and the warmth and kindness shown by the staff is indicative of their genuine interest in improving the health and well-being of their clients. We are so lucky to have this wonderful resource in our community!” — Mar Kuhnel
