Prenatal Yoga and Yoga for Mamas & Babies with Clearlight, now in Pointe-Claire!

 

Clearlight Gerald has brought her passion and joy to specialized prenatal yoga and mom & baby yoga classes for over 20 years, and we are super happy she is finally offering her classes here on the West Island! She’s taught thousands of women in Montreal, and has offered instruction that empowers Mamas to navigate the journey of pregnancy, childbirth and parenting with strength, grace, and confidence. Coming together in community is vital, so creating links among the women in class is part of every gathering, but so too is the practice of movements (with emphasis on core strength), breathing exercises and accessible meditation and relaxation. The theme of ‘keeping it real’ is interwoven through every class, everyone is welcome and encouraged to take things at their own pace, and there is no prerequisite of yoga experience or inclination.

 

Yoga for Pregnancy and Childbirth brings greater comfort and ease to pregnancy, and helps to alleviate stress and fears around childbirth by cultivating an effective ‘tool kit’ for the normal challenges of labour and delivery. Women are welcome anytime from 12 weeks to 41 weeks of pregnancy, and this Autumn classes are offered in Pointe-Claire Village on Wednesdays at 9:45 am. Advance registration is required, however Clearlight is adamant that women attend because they love the practice not because they paid, so there is an opt-out refund policy after the first class.

 

Mama & Baby Yoga is a gathering of friends –new and old… Clearlight mentioned that women often tell her a year later—sometimes ten years later—that they met their best Mama friend in these classes! This is not a quiet, inwardly focused class, not at all!! The babies are in charge, so everything is welcome, including fussing, crying, diaper changing — you name it! That being said, the yoga, incredibly, does unfold… specialized postnatal exercises, yoga breathing and tension release… and even baby massage and entertainment! The class is being offered in Pte-Claire Village at 11:30 am. (Classes are offered at Om West, however the registration is independent from Om West, and is directly through Clearlight on her website – or call Clearlight if you have any questions. You can join after the session has begun too.)

 

Clearlight Gerald is a certified yoga therapist, yoga and meditation teacher, birth doula and a perinatal specialist.
