Prenatal / Postnatal Yoga

All classes are at Yoga Focus. All classes are on hiatus until the week of April 6. Please check back for updates. 

Marlene is experimenting with offering online Prenatal yoga classes by using Zoom, a video meeting tool, beginning in April. Please email me if you are interested in Zoom Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga classes you can take in your home and I will contact you.


For prenatal classes, the best time to start is at the beginning of your second trimester; however, you may start the class any time during your pregnancy. You do not need to start at the beginning of a session of classes. Enrollment is “rolling” due to the time limited nature of pregnancy. New students are welcome any time

For postnatal students, rest is the most important posture after birth. After sufficient rest, please begin any week that you feel ready to come with your baby. Most women start coming 6 – 8 weeks after giving birth.

Prenatal Yoga Classes

Mondays 5:45 – 7:15 pm Prenatal Yoga

Wednesdays 12:30 – 2:00 pm Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga (with babies)

Thursdays 7:30 – 9:00 pm Prenatal Yoga

Postures are taught specifically for the pregnant body and are modified for any level of yoga experience or stage of pregnancy. All postures are taught with awareness of your growing baby. The standing postures promote strength, flexibility, and confidence. Seated and kneeling postures help to open the hips and pelvis, as well as lengthen and bring elasticity to the spine. Many postures work to expand the rib cage, easing the breath and creating space for your baby. Restorative poses promote conscious relaxation of the body, focus of the mind, and awareness of the breath – all of which are beneficial during pregnancy and beyond. 

We have very flexible class package options. See link below for specifics.


Prenatal/Postnatal Yoga Classes (bring your baby!)

Wednesdays 12:30 – 2:00 pm

This class is combined with postnatal moms and babies. So in addition to the details above describing the prenatal yoga, you will see how the postures differ for postpartum rehabilitation and learn from the postpartum moms about their experiences!

Postures are taught with a focus on strengthening and realigning the body after childbirth. Specific areas such as the pelvic floor, abdominals, neck, shoulders, and back are targeted by the postures. Some of the benefits women experience in this class include regaining strength, flexibility, and energy, as well as finding balance and restoration. This class also provides a space for mothers with new babies to connect and share information with each other.
