Anyone know of where I can take some good classes—particularly with a teacher who is experienced with teaching it?
I can commute easily in Central MD: parts of Baltimore County (Randallstown, Catonsville, etc), Carroll County, Howard County.
I liked Debbie Jensen-Grubb's class at the Columbia Yoga Center [in Howard]. Debbie has been teaching prenatal yoga for 8+ years. She is very gentle and warm. Her class focuses on preparing for L&D: building strength, learning to relax, opening the hips/pelvis, breath, focus. While she claims not to be a proponent either way, she really does strive to help "her" mamas achieve a natural birth.
Last I checked she's only teaching one prenatal class a week now, on Wednesday night.www.columbiayoga.com
This was the best class/place that I could find... http://www.yogaformoms.com/
It's located in Catonsville. I actually never took a class there, but have heard great things about it!
Good luck and Congratulations!
Shelby at Crofton Yoga is excellent, very gentle, very experienced. I don't know if you'd go there, but I wanted to put in the plug for her!
