LCCE, Doula, Certified Lactation Counselor, Certified Yoga Teacher
Shannon is so very happy to be offering classes at Studio Gaia. She is the owner and service provider for Metamorphose Maternity, based in Edwardsville and serving the greater Metro-East and St. Louis area with educational and support services that guide new parents through pregnancy, birth, and their first months with baby. As a mother of 4, Shannon knows how important preparation and support (not to mention a great sense of humor and a deep breath every now and again!!) is in this phase of life.
Get in touch with your baby and your changing body through yoga. Prenatal Yoga prevents and alleviates many common pregnancy discomforts. This class will prepare the body for childbirth by stretching and strengthening the lower back, abdominal and pelvic floor muscles, as well as opening the hips and sacrum. It teaches proper breathing and relaxation techniques so pregnant women are able to relax more easily. Come meet other moms-to-be while learning postures that help prepare the body for labor, delivery, and motherhood. Prenatal Yoga is offered in monthly sessions so each session begins the first Monday of the month and finishes at the end of the month.
