Prenatal Yoga Classes
North Shore yoga studio or virtual yoga classes via Zoom.
I teach traditional, breath-centered pregancy / prenatal yoga. ‘Breath-centered’ means the breath leads, guides and dictates all movement. It is the focus of the practice and is pivotal to working with the mind.
Yoga is not just about Asana postures, the true nature of yoga is to bring clarity to the function of your mind and that can only be done with your breath.
My prenatal yoga classes include:
- A 10 minute Birth Education Discussion
- a physical practice
- specialised meditation
- hypnobirthing affirmations in practice
- calm birth practice
- pranayama (breathing techniques)
- how to use vocal sound in birth
- active birthing preparation and postures
Preparing for labour and birth
Preparing your mind for the experience of labouring and birth is generally not something that can be done in a weekend course. You need to experience it and practice it in order to train your brain to support you for a calm birth.
Women supported this way tend to fall into their breath and ‘relaxed state’ much more easily, as they have formed a pattern in their brain that is familiar.
The physical nature of the practice has incredible benefits for your body. Yoga supports your muscles, ligaments and skeletal systems to not only benefit you week by week, but also help your baby to settle into an optimal position for comfort and birth.
Yoga right up until the birth
I teach women right up until they birth. The practices are made to support the transformation women’s bodies experience. There is then a natural progression into post natal practice to support recovery and motherhood.
