Pregnancy and Parent & Baby classes

A fit body makes for a healthy pregnancy and a resilient parent! Exercise before and after pregnancy is a fabulous way to enhance your health and wellness and to spend time bonding with your little one.

Benefits of pregnancy and parent & baby classes

Exercising with others increases social contact for both parent and baby. It is a fabulous way to get out of the house and connect with parents in your community!  Our classes will help you to improve your strength, cardio endurance, flexibility and wellness. You will become more physically aware and connect with your changing body during and after pregnancy.

Fitness has been shown to help with the birthing process, to improve sleep, elevate your mood, energy, and outlook on life.
