Prenatal Yoga gives you the opportunity to embrace your changing body and supports this process by practising meditation and yoga postures, in combination with breathing- and relaxation exercises and specific poses that can be used during delivery.
Your pregnancy can be a beautiful, special time, providing an opportunity to turn inward and get in contact with yourself and the baby you are carrying. In a short period of time, the body goes through a great transformation, getting ready for the delivery. We offer two types of Prenatal Yoga classes that will support you during the second and third trimester of your pregnancy. If you are in your first trimester we advise you to NOT practice yoga.
A gentle class that focuses on relaxation and letting go. Soft stretching and light strengthening combined with calm breathing will help to relieve tension that accumulates during pregnancy as the body goes through a lot of change. It helps train the breath, body, and mind to relax.
Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga
An empowering class that will help you to create strength and stamina needed during this transformative time. By moving with your breath in a modified vinyasa flow, you’ll greatly increase your ability to connect with your inner strength in preparation of childbirth. The class always ends with deep relaxation.
It is possible to practice other styles of yoga in the second or third trimester of your pregnancy, but please always let the teacher know that you are pregnant before the class starts. When practising in a regular class please be mindful and avoid deep twisting, deep backbends, breath retention and inversions. Being pregnant is a transformative and natural state in a woman’s life. Your body is changing every day so it is an especially important time to listen and connect with your body, letting your body and heart guide you through your practice.
For centuries ancient wisdom & traditions have been honoured and passed down by generations. The cycles of the moon, the transitioning of seasons and the cycles of (re)birth and passing on are still honored today and remain a crucial rite of passage.
Each labour and birth is unique. Birthlight Birth Preparation supports women’s centering and resilience so that they can remain at one with their birth experience, however, it unfolds. Partners learn how to support the birthing mother with touch, sound, massage, affirmations, and more.
