Pregnancy, birth, and post-birth are some of the most magnificent and intense life journeys a person can experience. It is an emotional and spiritual experience. It is transformational and life-altering. The prenatal and postnatal yoga practices taught in our classes and Yoga therapy sessions were created to help you navigate your way through these life changes with more support, strength, and confidence.
Yoga can help during pregnancy, a time when the body is undergoing so many changes.
Yoga during pregnancy has been shown to:
Boost energy levels
Cultivate breathing techniques
Empower women to have a conscious birthing experience
Relieve stress and anxiety
Strengthen birthing muscles
Promote relaxation and restful sleep
Keep the body supple
Relieve lower back pain
Relieve swollen joints, heartburn and constipation
Promote a healthy birth
We will prepare specifically body and mind for labor and birth. The mother or couple will learn great tools that can give natural pain relief, better contractions and easier labor and birth for the baby and mum.
The pregnant woman will train on how she during labor can keep a calm mind, feel safe, and be here and now, aware of her body and breathing.
Learn to use the gravity force in physical movement and active birthing positions. All of this can help the unborn baby to get into a better position in mum’s pelvis, so that the labor and birth can become easier and faster.
AFTER BIRTH > POSTPARTUM YOGA
Support for new mums who may be juggling a new routine, sleeplessness and isolation.
Mothers usually need to wait at least 6 weeks after giving birth so as to recover and to bond with baby however, however some mild practices as breathig, meditation, relaxation can be started right after birth.
Postnatal Yoga will help you to heal and close the body after birth, regain strength, re-align the spine, tone pelvic floor, abdominal and lower back muscles, relieve tension, cultivate serenity and inner balance, and replenish the necessary energy to attend your and your baby’s needs.
