Putting the “Om” in Mom: A Guide to Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga in San Antonio

Are you pregnant? Are you looking for something that can: 

  • Improve sleep?
  • Reduce stress and anxiety?
  • Increase the strength, flexibility, and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth?
  • Decrease lower back pain, nausea, carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms, headaches, and shortness of breath?  

But wait—there’s more! What about something that can connect you with other pregnant women and help you prepare for the emotional roller coaster of being a new parent?

According to the Mayo Clinic, prenatal yoga is for you!  

After you give birth, yoga is a great way to gently move and nurture your postpartum body. As a bonus, many postnatal classes are structured as “mommy and me” style classes that give you sweet connection time with your baby AND your abs.  

There are lots of great options for group and private prenatal and postnatal classes across San Antonio.

Michelle moved to San Antonio eight years ago and yet still feels like a newcomer. She is rather smitten with the Alamo City. She and her husband met at Texas A&M and started their marriage in Minnesota. After six years of very cold winters, they returned to Texas. Michelle has two kids (12 and 9), along with a very quirky rescue dog and two rather cute guinea pigs. A former corporate food scientist turned part-time yoga instructor, she still takes her food very seriously—she just doesn’t get paid for it anymore. She is fueled by tea, cold brew coffee, yoga, dog walking, books and quickly googling answers to her kids eleventy million questions.
