Pregnancy Yoga & Birth Preparation
West Coast Yoga and Pilates Studio, Whitehaven
Sunday 11th Dec 10:00-12:30
This workshop is especially for pregnant women from 16 weeks of pregnancy onwards. We will explore how a gentle yoga practice can be immensely supportive during pregnancy, nurturing our body, our mind and our connection with our growing baby.
Flowing postures increase strength and flexibility, prevent and release back pain and other pregnancy discomforts and build our energy and fitness.
Simple breathing practices help us to relieve stress and anxiety and create a sense of inner calm, focus and inner strength.
Of equal importance is the time spent stilling our mind from the busyness of everyday life and turning our attention inwards to connect with our baby. Through connecting with our baby during pregnancy we lay the foundations of one of the most important relationships of our lifetime and help ourselves prepare for mothering.
Alongside the benefits of yoga during pregnancy, we will explore the many ways in which yoga can support us during our experiences of labour and birth, however, and wherever our baby is born. Knowing there are lots of things we can do to prepare and to work with ourselves and our labour, rather than against ourselves gives women a sense of confidence, empowerment and excitement to take with them into labour.
I am a mother of three and an experienced yoga and pregnancy yoga teacher. I am also a Doula, having trained with the exceptional Michel Odent and Liliana Lammers, bringing much of their wisdom into my teaching. Having enjoyed the benefits of Yoga during my own pregnancies and births, I am enthusiastic to share the practices which can bring such sustenance and empowerment to women throughout the journey of motherhood.
No previous experience of yoga necessary, and experienced Yoga students are also very welcome.
