Prenatal Birth-Partner Yoga Workshop
Sunday, January 20th, 3:00-5:00pm | $50 per pair
Taught by Jackie Klue & Sandra Van Dong-DeLaRonde
In this 2-hour, fun and informative workshop, partners will practice breath work, yoga poses, massage, and relaxation techniques. Much emphasis will be placed on the essential role of the birth partner, providing specific, helpful techniques that the partner can use during pregnancy, labour, and beyond. The presence and encouragement of a woman's partner is a powerful aid to labour and birth. Partners will learn ways to support the pregnant and labouring woman in yoga poses, to help adjust her body for relaxation, and to safely massage and support her during this special time in her life.
During this workshop we will practice:
yoga poses for pregnancy & postpartum
relaxation and comforting techniques
breathing techniques that support easier birthing
stretches and toning joined with your partner
birthing positions that can be used during labour
connecting physically, emotionally as a couple and as a new family
Sharing movement, breath awareness and touch while spending time together away from daily responsibility creates the opportunity for expecting mama and her birth partner to connect with baby and nurture a comfortable pregnancy and birth. No yoga experience is required. Please wear comfortable clothing you can move freely in.
