Prenatal Yoga Workshop

9:30-11am Thurs, May 17th: Prenatal Yoga Workshop by Annie Cumming, PT, DPT, RYT

Join Annie Cumming, pelvic floor physical therapist and yoga teacher, for a morning dedicated to exploring prenatal health through yoga practices. This is an opportunity to support the changes occurring in your body, and enhance your own practices of mindfulness and self-care as you prepare for labor and delivery.

Part 1:

The first hour of the workshop will be discussion based, focusing on local anatomy and the significant physical changes that your body undergoes during pregnancy. We will learn about musculoskeletal causes for common prenatal aches and pains while introducing healthy habits, posture and movement strategies to prevent and alleviate symptoms of back, abdominal, and pelvic pain. Learn how to measure for diastasis rectus, prevent pubic symphysis pain, and address round ligament pain.

We will look in detail at the pelvic floor muscles and how this small group of muscles is essential movement, confidence, and our sense of self. We will discuss pelvic health symptoms as our body’s way of communicating with us, allowing for a fuller understanding of our own personal needs and individually prepare for labor and delivery.

And finally, we will explore wellness practices to promote pelvic health, allowing for enhanced strength, coordination, relaxation within the pelvic floor.

Part 2:

We bring this all together with an hour-long therapist led yoga practice, integrating breath work, local pelvic muscle recruitment, and guided meditation into a gentle prenatal asana practice focused on postural modifications, restoration, and self care.
