First prenatal yoga session held in Bismarck

BISMARCK, N.D. - Becoming a mom can lead to many questions or concerns and pregnancy can be tough on a woman's body.

A Bismarck yoga studio has a class just for expecting moms, as well as training for yoga instructors who want to become certified in prenatal yoga.

The techniques and poses are different and less stressful on the body while still relaxing the body and the developing baby. Transitions Yoga is the only yoga studio in Bismarck that can teach the special yoga.

"We learn about the body, all the different signs and symptoms that women go through during their first, second and third trimester," said Stephanie Strant, certified yoga instructor.

Completing the 85-hour course allows others to also teach prenatal yoga.
