About Harbor Prenatal

The Harbor programs, Prenatal Aqua Fit and Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga, are run through the Harbor Website and Mind Body. These classes are offered in 8 week sessions and you can start class at any time during the session if space allows. Drop-ins are available as well.

Prenatal Aquafit

Prenatal aqua fit is designed as a safe and fun way for pregnant women to get their cardio, strength and core work in, all while in the weightless comfort of a pool. Each session includes a variety of moves borrowed from traditional water fitness classes and swim team classes that will help participants get their heart rate up and strengthen all those muscles that a new mom will need. Swim skill is not required and we never put our faces in, however we willsometime be in water over your head.

Prenatal + Postnatal Yoga

Designed for moms-to-be and new moms (once you are ready to leave baby at home).  Whether you are a new or experienced yoga student, you will be gracefully guided through meditation, breathing, and movement specialized for the prenatal and postpartum body and mind. Designed to both nurture and challenge you, this class is intended to empower yourself during pregnancy and the early stages of motherhood while providing a space to connect with other mamas. You’ll benefit from much needed relaxation, while strengthening the muscles that support you during pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period.

FIT4BABY Prenatal

Harbor is proud to offer additional classes through FIT4MOM Madison.  FIT4BABY is designed specifically for moms-to-be. All exercises are carefully selected to prepare your body for the many changes you will experience during pregnancy. You can begin FIT4BABY at any point during pregnancy as the workouts are scientifically- based, purposeful and designed to accommodate your changing body. The 60-minute workout includes cardio, strength, balance, and flexibility training and ends with a relaxing meditation; everything you need during this precious time!

Nurture Your Body Postpartum

Society has morphed a mother’s brain that she should immediately be concerned about her postpartum appearance, thus, should jump right into exercise right after birth. Not only is this an unhealthy mindset, it’s unsafe for your healing body after birth. Give yourself a lot of grace, rest, and proper time to heal after childbirth before even thinking about working out again. Enjoy snuggles with your baby and rest as much as possible those first 6 weeks. Listen to your body. When your doctor says it’s okay for you to start easing back into adding movement into your newly postpartum lifestyle, start slow. These simple birth recovery movements will help you do just that.
