Whether you're preparing for the birth of a child or you have a new little one, there's a place for you here at Willow Street Yoga Center! We're excited to announce two new classes starting this Thursday, November 30th with Stephanie Preller.
Prenatal Yoga - Thursdays 9:45 - 10:45 a.m.
Prenatal yoga offers birthing parents the opportunity to relax, create space, and build strength and flexibility, while in community with other pregnant folks. Class will include physical movement, calming breathing practices, relaxation techniques, and an emphasis on mind/body awareness. Connect with other pregnant people to share resources, questions, ideas, and challenges.
Baby & Me - Thursdays 11:00 - 11:45 a.m.
Baby & Me Yoga offers postpartum strength-building exercises and breath-based techniques and relaxation for adults, as well as gentle movement for babies. Caregivers are encouraged to show up exactly as they are, as we acknowledge unique birth experiences and recovery journeys. Classes are designed for all caregivers and postpartum parents (as early as they are comfortable and with doctor’s consent) and pre-crawling babies.
Stephanie Preller, RYT 200, RPYT began her yoga journey after moving to a new city in search of community and was quickly hooked by the perfect blend of challenge, strength, and inner calm and balance that she received from the practice. She became a regular practitioner and completed her 200-hour teacher training, where she was trained to teach vinyasa and power yoga styles.
When Stephanie became pregnant with her first son, she began doing prenatal yoga, which was instrumental in helping her cultivate the physical and emotional strength and calm that was so important during her pregnancy and throughout new motherhood. This inspired Stephanie to go on to complete her 85-hour prenatal yoga training.
Stephanie believes it's truly a privilege to be able to support pregnant people during this special and challenging time and to share the many gifts she received herself from the prenatal yoga experience. Stephanie guides students with a focus on safe and effective alignment and linking breath to movement. Her goal is to provide accessible, well-rounded, and empowering classes that emphasize the importance of the mind-body connection.
