Congratulations on your baby!
Making time to practice a little bit of yoga allows you to hold space for your and your baby's health and emotional well-being during the amazing journey that is pregnancy.
Holistic Prenatal Yoga helps you focus more deeply on your pregnancy. You will feel more in touch with yourself, more connected and you will be reassured that the power to give birth and to nurture your baby once it is born is within you and nowhere else.
We will practice, share and learn in the most beautiful urban oasis in Munich. Svaira Yoga - The Studio is centrally located only 3 minutes away from the subway station Sendlinger Tor. As soon as you enter the backyard you will be fully submerged in the here and now. The studio has all the props we need for our practice, as well as changing rooms, a solid hygiene concept in view of COVID-19 and a lovely atmosphere, perfect for our yogini gatherings.
