Prenatal Yoga

In this comprehensive workshop for doulas and childbirth educators, we will demystify some of the concepts of yoga and show its simple, straight-forward relevance to the birthing process.

We will look at how the principals of yoga can assist the mother and baby as well as the support person during the labour process.

By focusing on breathing techniques, tips for full body relaxation and positions for labour. We will discover ways to release physical and mental tensions in order to create a more positive birthing environment for all involved.
