The Elephant mentality of raising children is community; they communally raise their young and help support one another along the parenting journey!
At Lucky Elephant Yoga and Wellness, one of our passions is support for parents. We believe in the community philosophy of raising family! We can all support and lift up one another. We strive to be a place where parents can come to find support, comfort and advice. This support begins during pregnancy and goes forever!
Our MAMAste programs are designed to educate parents on the many options they have to create a supported, healhy and mindful environment for their family. Parents can learn about these options and find the perfect "fit" for their individual family.
We have paired up with some wonderful parent advocates in the Rockland County area who are experienced and knowledgeable in their fields They educate with a kind and compassionate mindset to help guide without judgement.
During pregnancy, a woman's body and mind experience many changes. Connecting into and becoming comfortable with those changes is important as the pregnancy progresses. Maintaining the physical strength and flexibility of the body will help ease tensions and stress in the body and help prepare for childbirth.
We will move gently, stretch and help the body maintain the physical stability it needs during the months of pregnancy.
