Optum WOMEN’S HEALTH OFFERS PRENATAL YOGA CLASSES

 

Albuquerque, N.M. — Optum Women’s Health has partnered with eVOLV Fitness of New Mexico to offer convenient, low-cost prenatal yoga classes to expecting mothers in the Albuquerque area.

Classes are held every Tuesday from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Optum Center for Women’s Health (4010 Montgomery Blvd. NE), and each Thursday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. at eVOLV Fitness of New Mexico (7900 San Pedro Dr. NE).

Participants can attend five classes for $20, or for $7 per individual class. All expecting mothers are invited to attend.

“Optum Women’s Health partnered with eVOLV Fitness because we saw a growing interest among our patients for different ways to keep themselves happy and relaxed during their pregnancies,” said Yeni Yim, Optum Certified Nurse Midwife. “Prenatal yoga is a wonderful way to prepare physically and emotionally for labor.”

According to Yim, classes offer a safe and active workout for all three trimesters, fully preparing expecting mothers not just for childbirth, but also for postpartum recovery.

Call 254-6500 for more information.
