Kasia Pokrop

Prenatal Yoga (zwangerschapsyoga)

Born in Warsaw, Poland in 1983

Born and raised in Poland, Kasia left her home country at the age of 22. Starting her journey in Ireland, she continued to Belgium, Amsterdam, Singapore, and back to Amsterdam, where she found her new home. It was also here in Amsterdam where her yoga journey began.


Daily practice of Astanga opened another world to Kasia. She became curious, wanted to learn more about the practice, where it is coming from and how she can share it with others. She followed 50hr Anatomy course with Jose de Groot in 2015, then joined workshops with Petri Räisänen, Ken the Rolfer, Edie Stern, David Swenson.

She travelled to Rome to practice with Lino Miele, and when she was about to sign up for a teacher training to further deepen her knowledge about the practice, she got pregnant. The interesting thing is, it didn't stop her from anything. Instead, it helped her grow, become more humble, appreciate more what you can do rather than seeing what you cannot do, and most of all - enjoy the time of her pregnancy. Something she decided she wants to share with others as well. 

Following her mantra 'practice, practice, practice' she finalized Basic Teacher Training 200Hr with Claudia Pradella and Eva Ugolini, followed by Pregnancy and Birth Teacher Training with Birthlight, and around the same time she certified as a HypnoBirthing® Practitioner, The Mongan Method.

Today she has a chance to share her passion for Astanga, and help women through pregnancy with prenatal classes, and HypnoBirthing® courses.

HypnoBirthing, The Mongan Method: 5-Week Holistic Birth Preparation Course

Met Kasia Pokrop

Begint op 15 June 2021

There have been many techniques used by pregnant people in preparation for labour and delivery. Among those techniques, one stands out: using hypnosis in the birthing process.   This art of birthing, called Hypnobirthing, consists of helping someone tap into their subconscious mind to release any tension which could cause a less than pleasant labour and delivery. With The Mongan Method, you will be able to summon your natural birthing instincts to safely, easily, and comfortably ease your baby into the world.   This holistic birth preparation course will support you throughout your pregnancy and prepare you for labour and the early weeks after. What you will learn: The course consists of 5 weekly sessions, covering the topics of: Deep relaxation Special breathing techniques for labour Self-Hypnosis Massage techniques Visualizations Affirmations And education that supports you throughout the whole pregnancy and are there to use during labour and birth.   It is important for you to be able to achieve true relaxation during this stage of your pregnancy journey. The instructor of this course, Kasia Pokrop, will share additional tips to access this state of being, such as: Poses to relieve sensations during labour Poses to relieve common pregnancy pains The Labor Circuit Positions for birthing Partner Practices to support you during labour and birth   This course also offers the opportunity to prepare an individualized birth plan with Kasia in preparation for birth.     Benefits of Hypnobirthing The following benefits will ensure that this special moment in your life is as seamless as possible: The Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome is eliminated before, during and after birthing. The need for chemical anaesthesia, episiotomy and other interventions is reduced, oftentimes eliminated. Fatigue during labour is lessened. By using breathing techniques rather than pushing, the risk of pelvic floor damage is reduced. The birthing companion is an integral part of the birthing, not an onlooker. Babies are better adjusted and happier, resulting in better eating and sleeping routines. And more...   An investment of € 375,- per couple includes: Around 12-12½ hours of tuition in 5 HypnoBirthing sessions for mum and birth companion in a small group HypnoBirthing relaxation audio tracks Handouts & materials for the course Tailored Birth preferences for individual needs Contact with Kasia via email/telephone for the duration of the course, but also before and after for any questions Requirements for Participation You are eligible to start this course after the 14th week of your pregnancy, and not later than the 35th week. Required Literature Please make sure to have the book HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method - the Natural Approach to a Safe, Easier, More Comfortable Birthing by Marie Mongan on hand when we start the course. Past Student’s Experience What has been said about this course: “I’m so happy and grateful I came across Kasia and the Seventh Series hypnobirthing course during my pregnancy. It made me approach these few months with a much more calm, relaxed attitude, and deep trust in my body and its ability to birth my baby.   The breathing exercises are useful beyond pregnancy and birth, and I find myself applying them in a lot of daily life situations as well. That, paired with a sense of gratitude, and positivity that came from the course, the yoga and meditation sessions and Kasia’s energy, makes me approach birth with a renewed confidence in myself and my body, and a real excitement for the big day.   Kasia went above and beyond to help me turn my baby from breech to head down, and despite the challenges brought by the COVID, she managed to run the class through Zoom and make us feel included as part of the group and comfortable. Thank you, Kasia!”  - Anne, May 2020, Amsterdam
