PRENATAL PARTNER WORKSHOP: YOGA IN CHILDBIRTH
This workshop will teach you and your partner various tools and techniques to help you through labor and delivery. It will explore visualizations, meditation and pranayamas (focused yogic breathing) used to reduce fear and anxiety by promoting relaxation.
You and your partner will also learn gentle yoga asanas and movements with the support of a birthing ball to reduce pain and enhance progress in labor. Partners will learn hands on techniques including massage, acupressure and counter pressures along with positive affirmations that will help the mama to feel fully supported during labor. We will also discuss the stages of labour and the physiology of pain.
By providing expectant parents with a better understanding of pain, we will aim to lessen the fear associated with pain and childbirth and give mamas effective tools for pain management in labor. This workshop approaches birth from a yogic perspective but no previous yoga experience is required.
Upcoming Session: TBA
