Prenatal Yoga at Bamboomoves

There is this beautiful, comforting energy that enters the studio every time there is a prenatal yoga class. All the women have this amazing presence that seems to bring peace to everyone around them.

They don't notice it.

Even Milo, our little furry mascot, would stay close to the prenatal students and on more than one occasion had to be carried out of the classroom after not wanting to give up his spot at their feet.

They don't notice the effects they have on others.

They come in and join each other in the room ready to share their experiences,grow in their practice, and find some rest. It's like a community in a community. They are supportive of each other and find comfort in eachothers support.

They come from all different walks of life. Some of our prenatal students have an established Yoga practice, but attend this gentle version just to experience the commonality with other women. Some have never been to a yoga class in their life, but found their way to our little studio. They uphold a unique bond.

Even after they give birth, they still ask about each other and remain friends. Sometimes I miss the ones that have moved on to motherhood, but I am grateful that we were able to share an important transition in their lives.

Maybe it was just a few classes or the whole pregnancy. It still is a special moment-every time.
