Prenatal Yoga Series with McKenzie Riepen
April 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm| $88
Prenatal yoga is a wonderful way to tend to the physical body during pregnancy and build strength to prepare for labor and delivery. This series will also be a supportive group container—offering emotional and spiritual foundations for building greater awareness around the new or evolving role as a mother, releasing stress and worries about the future, and a way to build a deeper connection with baby.
Coming to this class will alleviate anxieties around, “Can I do this” or “Should I be modifying this for my pregnancy” that expecting mothers may face in a regular class. Each class offers a well-rounded practice with the first half focused on more active strength for the body, engaging key muscles for support during pregnancy and childbirth. The second half of class will offer more mellow, restorative shapes and calming tools for the mind including myofascial release, or self-massage.
Prenatal yoga is often suggested by OB/GYNs. Please check with your doctor before beginning this series.

About the instructor: Mckenzie Riepen
McKenzie Riepen was originally drawn to the mat for the physical workout and release from everyday pressures. With more consistency, she started to receive the benefits of yoga that spanned far beyond physical changes. She experienced positive mental and emotional effects to her well-being, including learning how to deal with anxiety in a way she had never before been able to access. Most importantly, yoga taught her how to use her breath as the most powerful tool to become more present in daily life and realign things into perspective.
After a decade of exploring different yoga styles from Hatha, Restorative and Vinyasa, she completed her 200-hour teacher training in her hometown of Phoenix, Arizona in 2013. McKenzie compassionately guides her students to connect more deeply to themselves and to each other through breath work, creative energy flow sequencing and music. Her aim in teaching is to help others find joy through their practice, which she believes should be accessible for everyone—no matter age, experience level or physical location.
