I have been taking the Prenatal yoga classes at YogaWorks and let me tell you, it has done wonders for both my body and my psyche! I never considered myself a “yoga person” before, and in fact, I was really intimidated to even try yoga.  I am incredibly inflexible and feared that I would be surrounded by people folding themselves into pretzels when I cannot even touch my toes!     

That is so not the case!  The teachers are so wonderful, and they always emphasize how  there is no judgement in yoga. You do what your body can do.  Just working on the breathing alone is helpful.  I admit I am a pretty tightly wound so practicing yoga is a major de-stressor.  I think it will be really helpful for my delivery as well.  But, most of all, I just cherish the hour and a half of PEACE and QUIET to myself!!!  

Right now (through March 31st) they are having a special, where if you refer a friend, both you and the friend get $50 Yoga bucks to be used towards packages as well as a week for free.   I currently have a package there, so if you want to sign up for classes, you can use my name and get $50 credit towards your classes (and help me subsidize my yoga habit!! HA!)   If you buy a 20-pack (valued at $240), it brings the cost down to $190, which makes it $9.50 per class. 

Email me at if you are interested, and I can send you the info!
