Free Prenatal Yoga Classes at Encinitas Health Center

North County Health Services is pleased to announce the addition of free prenatal yoga classes to obstetrics (OB) patients at our Encinitas Health Center every Friday from 10:15 to 11:30 a.m. in the health education classroom.

In addition to the standard NCHS obstetrician/midwife collaboration model of health care, the clinic will add yoga as a multifaceted approach to exercise during pregnancy.

The Mayo Clinic explains benefits of prenatal yoga include:

·         Improved sleep, reduced stress and anxiety

·         Increased strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth

·         Decreased lower back pain, nausea, carpal tunnel syndrome

·         Decreased risk of preterm labor and pregnancy-induced hypertension, and

·         It can also help a mom-to-be meet and bond with other pregnant women and prepare for the stress of being a new parent.

Prenatal yoga classes often include a combination of breathing exercises, gentle stretching, postures and relaxation specifically designed for pregnant women. NCHS is excited to offer this opportunity to our patients for a healthier pregnancy experience!
