About pregnancy yoga

While I was 15 weeks pregnant with my daughter, I followed the Birthlight Prenatal Training with Francoise Barbira Freedman. It was a wonderful opportunity to deepen understanding what we need during the different stages of pregnancy, how labor can be a natural and non-violent experience, and how to sound and breathe out a new life. After that, how to take care of ourselves, close our pregnancies, and carry on in our lives as a content mother and woman.

Based on the Birthlight principles, I am offering yoga classes that include different breathing methods, sounding, dynamic and fluid exercises, relaxation, and mothering for women and babies.

In the yoga classes, you learn to support your posture by using the ground and practicing dynamic yet gentle exercises, to help ease back pain, to strengthen your pelvis and pelvic floor, and to relax. Your special needs will also be addressed.

The course also prepares for giving birth by creating your own birthing place, finding your birthing positions, and practicing breathing techniques, sounding, and micro-movements. The anatomy and physiology of labor is also introduced. The course offers two partner classes. The partner class is for everybody you would like to have close to you during labour and birth. That supporting person can be your partner, sister, mother, friend, or anybody else who you feel fully comfortable with.
