Expecting mothers are invited for a free prenatal yoga session at the library taught by Kelli Jackson, owner of Zen Den Yoga and an expecting mother herself. Yoga is beneficial during pregnancy because it helps you learn how to breathe deeply and consciously relax, which will be useful as you face the physical demands of labor, birth, and new motherhood. Yoga during pregnancy can keep you limber, tone your muscles, and improve your balance and circulation, so check out this class in the Storytime Room.
