PREGNANCY DAY RETREAT NOVEMBER 23RD SEE RETREATS
The class offers a unique opportunity to come together, in a beautiful home studio within a period Georgian townhouse, to practice yoga. To ease your body and grow accustom to the transformation. A personal class and space that will celebrate the wonder and joy. At the same time remaining grounded in nurture, care and laughter to support the challenges.
This class uses the tools of yoga; asana, breath awareness and control, meditation, sound and relaxation to support your body and mind to be strong and healthy whilst also allowing you the heart space to relax and explore your journey, connecting with your growing baby. The class is structured to allow time for you to informally share your experience and thoughts on different aspects of pregnancy and the beginnings of motherhood. Class is followed by tea and refreshments, time to talk and get to know each. During this time, you are encouraged to visit us after you have had your baby!
Birth Preparation Night with your Partner
Thursday 20th June 2019 1-3 p.m.
(£45 per couple)
Partners night is a practical workshop to help your partners understand and practice supporting you in labour. We will look at skills such as breathing techniques, movement, positioning, sound, language and massage. We will look at how we can create an optimum birth space, managing transferring from home to hospital, what labouring women look and act like and how to support them but also common things that partners sometimes do that aren't helpful!! How to advocate for the labouring woman and the sort of decisions that might need to be made. How to look after themselves and an opportunity to ask questions they might have too. It creates a useful space to look at thoughts and practicabilities, to build a great partnership to take you into parenthood. For those who are looking forward to a second or more birth, it can be valuable for looking at what worked and any challenges from last time and how to look to this birth in the most empowering way.
There is opportunity to make what I teach very specific to those in the group, so come with questions and your own particular needs!
