You will learn safe yoga sequences and breathing techniques to take home.
You will be guided through deep relaxation practices to help you connect with yourself and your baby and you will meet, connect and share with other pregnant women.
From these classes you can bring into the labour room some effective tools that include; breath awareness, labour positions and the mental perspective that provides calm confidence and an acceptance of the often unpredictable process of birth.
What to expect:
We start the class with a guided meditation to connect you to yourself and your baby.
We then move onto warming up the joints of the body, before moving into a series of Pregnancy Sun Salutations. Following these we practice safe effective standing or floor poses. We end the class with Restorative Yoga, which helps you deepen into relaxation and take the much needed rest you need.
