I was looking for some mild exercise while pregnant, and had thought about yoga, but was a little hesitant to actually sign up for a class since I had never practiced yoga before. I ran into Shannon at a reception (I was about 23 weeks along) and she told me about her class – it was exactly what I needed and I signed up, and have been very happy about that! Shannon is a very friendly, fun, careful and supportive teacher, and I always felt at ease in her small-scale class. She taught me a lot about basic yoga techniques, from breathing exercises to several pregnancy-friendly postures to awareness of certain important muscle groups. She made me work out my increasingly pregnant body, without ever pushing it too far. I always felt a lot better after class than before, more relaxed and with less aches and pains. I highly recommend this class to any pregnant woman, but especially yoga-nitwits like me who need some extra reassurance and support 🙂
