YOGA FOR BIRTH PREPARATION
NEXT COURSE: WEDNESDAY 8 & 15 JUNE, 4:30-6PM
Diane's "Yoga for Birth Preparation" classes are tailored for the final stages of pregnancy (from 32 weeks), where what we need most is to quieten the mind, let go of time pressures and constant doing and be in a consciously relaxed state, where we can connect with ourselves, our babies and our inner birthing wisdom.
The course runs over two weeks covering the following topics:
The natural physiology of birth – What to expect at different stages of the labour process
Using breath as your anchor in labour – Detailed breath techniques for the different stages of labour.
Managing fear – Trusting your body and nurturing a sense of empowerment Creating a positive intention and guided relaxation – Letting go of the intellect and connecting with intuition and instincts. After the initial discussion, the session then becomes more body focused incorporating yoga postures that can help move the labour process along and build an inner and outer strength, to support a woman along the course of her labour. The class ends with a restorative relaxation, fully supporting the mum to be, so they can let go and connect with their inner self and their babies. Above all, the class aims to nurture a sense of community and sharing in the final stages of pregnancy to support women as they approach their birth and enter into motherhood.
