The Birth Well
The Birth Well @ Baltimore Yoga Village offers a suite of services specifically designed to educate and support women on the birthing journey. We believe that peace begins with how babies are brought into the world and that women can have empowered and peaceful birthing experiences in the hospital or the home.
Prenatal Yoga honors the unique capacity of the pregnant body while honoring the changing psyche of the expectant mother. Appropriate for beginners and all levels of experience, in these classes, women relax in the company of other women in a sacred space, exercising in preparation for childbirth. The classes combine discussion, gentle yoga stretches, creative movement, breathwork, massage and guided imagery to cultivate a deeper awareness, trust, and confidence in our body’s innate resources for pregnancy, labor, and birth. Classes are held in 6 week sessions in our Hampden location. View the Specialty Courses page to read on and register for the next 6 week session. Cost: $90 for six weeks.
