Prenatal Yoga


This class is taught by:

Victoria Blevins

Victoria was born in Southwest Virginia and returned to the area in 2014 to be closer to family. Victoria studied Literature and Linguistics at Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg, VA. She was first introduced and fell in love with yoga while studying for her Masters degree in Linguistics in Sydney, Australia. After moving to Rhode Island in 2007, Victoria became intricately involved in a yoga community and developed a deep connection with the practice and its benefits. This connection to the loving spirit of the practice led Victoria to complete her RYT-200 in Integrative Yoga Therapy at One Yoga Studio in RI in 2008.
Victoria studied Speech Language Pathology at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA and has studied Integrative Movement Therapy at the Samarya Center in Seattle, Washington. She regularly draws from yoga in her treatment of speech, language and feeding/swallowing disorders. Victoria completed her Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training in May of 2015 at the Asheville Yoga Center in Asheville, NC.
Victoria has two boys, Alistair and Henry, who keep her busy and motivated. She loves spending time with her boys, being outside, cooking and interacting with her new community. Victoria is a founding member of Wolf Hills Heritage School, a cooperative early education school opening in the fall of 2016.
At WTY we believe in the potential of building healthy community that celebrates both the differences and similarities in our human experience. We have witnessed how the shared experience of pregnancy, childbirth and parenting has the power to create connections between people from different backgrounds and belief systems.

Whitetop invites you to join us once a month in a gathering of mothers-to-be for prenatal yoga. In these hour and a half classes, expectant mothers can explore the changes their bodies are undergoing, and prepare for the powerful experience of childbirth and mothering. Classes focus on providing physical support during pregnancy, and preparing for labor. They incorporate gentle strengthening, stretching, body awareness and breath exercises. Special emphasis is placed on building pelvic floor and core strength to support the body through natural structural changes, and on developing mental focus and calm through breath and meditation practices. Open to all levels; no experience necessary.

Classes will be guided by Victoria Blevins, a certified Prenatal Instructor, RYT 200 (soon be be 500), and a Speech Language Pathologist with training in child development as well as infant feeding (including breast-feeding support).
