Breath and mindful movement, connection with yourself and with your body. Yoga is a practice with limitless benefits, impacting our physical, mental, emotional and energetic wellbeing. As one moves through their pregnancy, these benefits can be harnessed to not only ease the day to day discomforts and anxieties that are common within pregnancy, but to help prepare for birth itself.
Physical movement to ease specific areas of discomfort during pregnancy and promote optimal fetal positioning during labor
Practice of various breathing techniques to oxygenate and energize during pregnancy and promote calm and relaxation during labor
Practice of positive affirmations throughout pregnancy and the ability to stay present and trust the body's natural ability during labor
Practice of pelvic floor awareness during pregnancy to promote the ability to consciously and continuously release and soften during labor
Being able to provide my birth clients with the added benefits of private yoga is a beautiful compliment to the birth support I offer as a doula. Not only does it allow space for further practice of physical techniques that will be beneficial during labor, but it also creates an increased sense of trust and connection, which in turn benefits the progression of labor.
