Yoga for pregnant women provides body and mind awareness, improving flexibility, endurance and breathing. 

Water Aerobics

The physical exercises practiced in water aerobics strengthen abdominal and pelvic floor muscles as well as the perineum, all important during delivery. Promotes lymphatic drainage, reduces joint and muscle pain resulting from pregnancy.

Water aerobics for pregnant women provides body awareness and favors the couple's complicity.
