This workshop is split into two segments:
Part One: Join prenatal yoga teacher Natalie, for a prenatal yoga practice that will weave in active meditation and pranayama (breath) that can be practiced throughout pregnancy and during your birth. The practice will be followed a short discussion about how yogic tools can be applied during labour. Learn how to work with your body, not against it!Part Two:
A lot of the fear surrounding childbirth stems from not knowing what to expect, so we will explore the birth process in depth and discuss how to use tools such as yoga, active meditation, mantra and breath to move through the fears and anxieties that could inhibit you from having the most enjoyable birth experience possible. Come prepared for this workshop with writing material and your questions about birth. You’ll leave this workshop feeling more calm, confident and prepared for your upcoming birth experience!
