“Prenatal yoga was one of the greatest things I did for myself during my pregnancy journey. As a beginner to yoga, I was unsure what kind of experience I would walk away with, but I’m pleased to say it was incredible! Throughout my weekly practices, I was able to develop a vision for my labor and delivery. These classes taught me the power and importance of the breath, and trained my body to relax and let go. They also provided relief to the normal aches and pains experienced during pregnancy. I am so thankful for my commitment to yoga throughout my pregnancy, as I truly believe it empowered me to have the amazing natural childbirth I desired.”-Nicole, Fort Wayne
“Having had a pretty steady yoga practice prior to becoming pregnant, I was happy to give the Pranamammas prenatal yoga classes a try once the normal classes became a bit too much for me and my growing belly. While it was great to be able to continue my practice, I also found myself part of this new club of moms-to-be, and part of the fun every week was getting the updates on how everyone was doing with their pregnancy. The classes also gave me a chance to have some dedicated “me” time every week where I could relax and focus on baby and me.”-Kate, Fort Wayne
