Citizen On-Demand is a digital movement and well-being studio offering the best of Citizen Yoga to students all over the world. With hundreds of alignment-based yoga classes, guided yoga and mental health series, and motivating challenges, students have the opportunity to improve their overall well-being on their own time, at their own pace, and at their own place.
While students certainly don't need to "give up" their yoga practice during pregnancy, dedicated Prenatal classes are designed to help you navigate the many physical and mental changes you're experiencing. The goal of Citizen's Prenatal is to equip each student with the physical capabilities, conscious breathing techniques, confidence, and self-trust for their ideal childbirth experience. You'll learn safe modifications for each trimester while creating a deeper, more compassionate connection with your body.
Postnatal classes aim to help new parents rebuild their yoga practice in a way that creates a healthy postpartum body and a peaceful mind. These healing experiences are an opportunity to bring awareness and movement into your body while you recover from childbirth. Not sure whether you're ready to start practicing again? Most women wait to begin any sort of flowing movement until after they're cleared by a doctor, though you may crave gentle upper body stretches, restorative postures, and stress-relieving pranayama techniques before then. Check in with your body before any practice, and consult with your doctor if you have any concerns.
