Yoga is an excellent way to prepare the mind, body and spirit for the many transitions of pregnancy, childbirth and parenthood. In this workshop, you will learn techniques for breath awareness, partner poses and massage, which can help strengthen and relax your body, and soothe your mind during the birth process. These approaches will give you the opportunity to connect more deeply to yourself, your partner and your baby. We will also explore visualization and relaxation techniques that can further assist you during childbirth. Please eat a light meal one hour before class, and bring a snack and water bottle. Please wear clothes you can move in. Jeans are not recommended. If a class is full, you can be placed on a waitlist, and we will contact you if space becomes available.
