Prenatal Yoga

We offer free weekly prenatal yoga classes every Thursday at 7 PM in the Mountain View Hospital Health and Fitness Academy. Not only does this class help keep mothers stay in shape and relax, but it also helps many women prepare for labor by exercising the muscles used during childbirth. In addition, yoga generally promotes the overall health of mother and baby. For any questions or concerns, please contact our Health and Fitness Academy at (208)557-2729 or by email at


Benefits of Prenatal Yoga

Prenatal yoga is a multifaceted approach to exercise that encourages stretching, mental centering and focused breathing. Research suggests that prenatal yoga is safe and can have many benefits for pregnant women and their babies. For example, studies suggest that prenatal yoga can:

  • Improve sleep
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Increase the strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth
  • Decrease lower back pain, nausea, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches and shortness of breath
  • Decrease the risk of preterm labor, pregnancy-induced hypertension and intrauterine growth restriction — a condition that slows a baby’s growth

Prenatal yoga can also help you meet and bond with other pregnant women and prepare for the stress of being a new parent.


Location of Prenatal Yoga Class

Prenatal Class: Pregnancy through Parenting

Birth is a big, life-changing miracle. Mountain View Hospital is here to help you get ready for it.

Join our prenatal expert, who has helped thousands of families, for a day designed to prepare you for childbirth and early baby care. This class is specifically designed with moms in mind. However, we highly encourage you to bring along your support person, so they feel just as ready for the delivery as you will when you’re done with our class.

During your day with us, we will cover what to expect during the end of your pregnancy, give you tips to help you prepare for your delivery, teach you about the signs of labor and when to come to the hospital, discuss how to manage pain during pregnancy, the basics of breastfeeding, outline the recovery process for mom and baby, and cover the essentials of newborn care.

To make sure you get the most out of the class, we’ve designed the day to include lots of interactive elements. So, please wear clothes you’ll be comfortable in.
