Yoga of Los Altos is a boutique studio with the best teachers offering a fresh and diverse yoga program for all levels. This studio believes that yoga brings you energy, takes away stress, helps build and maintain fitness, and is terrific for pregnant bodies. Their prenatal yoga program is a multifaceted approach to exercise that encourages stretching, mental centering, and focused breathing. This yoga class is specifically for moms-to-be, appropriate for newly pregnant women and women well into their 3rd trimester. Their prenatal classes include a new student’s first class special, drop-in classes, bundled classes, and other new student specials.
Opened in 2019, Lotus Blossom is a local, woman-owned yoga studio that focuses on training yoga instructors while offering prenatal and postnatal yoga classes. Both founders had the same philosophy. These women provide significant resources to pregnant mamas with great passion. They also want to educate and train other teachers so their passion can be shared. All Lotus Blossom classes are personalized to meet your needs, whether in person or online. As part of the class, you will have an opportunity to address any discomforts or questions you may have. You can also build connections with others in the same stage of their lives. During Lotus Blossom’s yoga classes, breath-focused meditation sets the stage for self-inquiry. In addition, a more comfortable pregnancy and postpartum can be had by practicing postures that target core stability, pelvic floor awareness, and movement.
Throughout the practice, mindfulness meditation is woven as a tool for coping with labor and all the challenges that parenting is sure to bring. For deep relaxation, each practice concludes with a restorative pose. After class, students are invited to remain on Zoom or in the studio to ask further questions. At Lotus Blossom, students can grab a single drop-in class, class bundles, or unlimited monthly memberships.
