Prenatal Yoga | Online
Next session commences April 12, 2020.
Sunday Afternoons | 2pm to 3:15pm
Guided by Kama Kalia.
This 12 week practice is about mind-body connection, strengthening, relaxation, meditation, and community.
Each session will include breath awareness, mindfulness techniques, and physical postures (asanas) in addition to incorporating themes to support the prenatal experience and prepare for birthing. Like an elaborate and layered tapestry, each practice is woven into the next class, building on the previously learned techniques and knowledge. All trimesters are welcome. We believe in creating an inclusive, accessible, non-judgmental, and safe space for self-expression and practice. No previous experience with yoga or meditation is required.
Since qualifying as a yoga teacher, Kama has been teaching at her home studio, as well as initiating and leading wellness initiatives at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, her current workplace. To date, she has received over 700 hours of teacher training inclusive of Moksha Flow (Edmonton, 2016) and Prenatal Yoga (Toronto, 2017). Kama is also a reiki channel with Level 2 certification. In addition to her dedication to work and yoga, Kama recently became a mother to a beautiful baby boy named Sai. She always strives to bring her love of life and her passion to help others into all that she does.
