LIVINGSTON, NJ -- CardioYoga, located at 521 South Livingston Ave., is offering a Prenatal Fitness + Wellness Series for expectant mothers. This series will not only physically strengthen and tone women’s bodies for birth, but aims to mentally and emotionally prepare them for the changes ahead.

A woman’s body goes through many changes as she prepares for birth. There is so much we can do to ease prenatal aches and pains, while also strengthening and prepping our body for birth.

To begin the seven-class series, an experienced doula will share how to best care for your body during pregnancy, throughout labor and postpartum care. There will be time at the end to ask any questions about birthing plans and overall pregnancy wellness.

The following six classes will be alternate between  LIIT™ (Labor Intensive Interval Training) and Prenatal Yoga classes.

LIIT will teach how to achieve proper alignment and core activation while participating in cardio intervals and functional strength-training drills. The circuits will be intermixed – a proprietary way of helping physically and mentally prepare for labor. This class will help you train for a healthy and safe pregnancy and delivery while building strength and endurance in a safe, fun and effective way.

The Prenatal Yoga classes will help to relieve aches and pains many women experience during pregnancy. The class will entail deep stretching, focused breathing and mental centering.

This seven-class series will be led by three teachers trained in all things prenatal health and wellness.  The first class will begin on July 10 and will meet every Wednesday from 10:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m., ending Aug. 21.
