Pre-/Postnatal Fitness

Journey through this magical time together as you draw on the experiences, support and friendships of pre/postnatal fitness class participants and staff. BPRD’s specially-designed classes follow ACOG (American Council Obstetrics Gynecology) guidelines, helping you maintain or improve your fitness level.

Prenatal Yoga

Prenatal Yoga is an all-levels class designed to allow expectant people to practice yoga in a safe and supportive environment.

This class also welcomes individuals who are assisting people through their pregnancies and would like to join them in class. Prenatal Yoga focuses on stretching, strategic strengthening, breathing and relaxation. It provides a gentle workout for the whole body while introducing methods for releasing and dealing with stress.

This class allows for exploration of the wondrous and ever-shifting state of the pregnant mind and body. It also offers tools for navigating the journey ahead and encourages connection between fellow students. It is advisable to check with your doctor before starting any new exercise program.

Water Fitness

Prenatal participants are welcome in any of the water fitness programs for great exercise! Water provides the freedom and support to help make exercising safe and effective during pregnancy. Water exercises can help you have a more pleasant pregnancy and prepare for labor.

Please arrive 10 minutes early to your first class so that the instructor can orient you to the available floatation options.
