From week 12 until birth
An empowering class to create strength and stamina in body and mind to embrace this transformative time. We move through waves alternating moments of intensity to moments when we turn inward. By moving with your breath in a modified vinyasa flow, you’ll greatly increase your ability to connect with your inner strength in preparation of childbirth.
The class always ends with a restorative asana and a Yoga Nidra script or guided meditation preceded by a few rounds of pranayama to settle the mind.
Classes will resume September 17 at Yoga Circle, De Clerqstraat 66-68, 1052NJ, AMSTERDAM
Tuesday 16.30 - 17.45
Sunday 13.00 - 14.15
