At Bend, we focus on supporting women during their child bearing years through pre and post natal yoga, educational offerings, and supportive services. Our prenatal classes focus on helping women feel physically better throughout pregnancy, prepare for delivery, and build a community for those who attend. Our post natal classes emphasize helping mamas feel stronger and help address any physical issues they may have after pregnancy and delivery. Most of our instructors have babies of their own, and/or attend births with our clients and are able to provide guidance on the delivery process. We also offer classes for expectant couples to help them understand what to expect during labor, and how partners can be active and supportive during the process.
We serve the unique needs of children through playful and exciting exercises. We offer yoga classes for children 6 weeks to 18 years of age, as well as family options in a non-competitive and stress-free atmosphere. The yoga practice incorporates aspects of overall physical health, encourages body awareness, and promotes a focus on breathing. Through fun and engaging classes, children will develop stronger bodies and minds and an enhanced sense of themselves.
Because the studio promotes a non-competitive, respectful environment, we ask that you review the following with your kids prior to coming to class: Respect yourself, respect others, respect your environment. Be kind and have fun!
