My Yogabirthing Bootcamp prenatal classes and indepth homework notes and videos are designed to get you ready for what may be the biggest physical and emotional event of your life. You wouldn’t run a marathon without training, preparing physically and mentally for birth just makes sense!
I’ve done extensive post graduate training and have been teaching pregnant women and their partners for over 12 years now. I am passionate about helping empower women (and partners) to go into the birth that unfolds for them with a full ‘toolbox’.
Through my own three very different births I can vouch that these Yoga tools are invaluable in pretty much all pregnancy and labour scenarios, directly alleviating aches and pains (the Gate Theory of pain) and, keeping you grounded and deeply relaxed.
My YogaBirthing classes are all about teaching you how to ‘be in control of letting go of being in control’, an incredible ‘anchor’ that will help you embrace whatever birth unfolds for you, moment to moment.
The 6 week YogaBirthing Bootcamp course consists of pre recorded full length classes emailed every Saturday at 9.30am then homework e-booklet notes and ‘drill down’ videos to practice the key tools for birthing between classes. Each class incorporates yoga stretching and strengthening to alleviate pregnancy aches and pains, pelvic floor toning and exercises to prepare your body for birth; but each one is also focussed on a different aspect of labour preparation.
The homework notes and videos expand on that weeks’ theme:
Week 1: Breathing for Birth and the biology of birthing
Week 2: Key Postitions and Movement and working with the uterus
Week 3: The Gate Theory Of Pain and how to work with the brain.
Week 4: Avoiding induction/working with induction. Accupressure points and more
Week 5: Self hypnosis and deep Relaxation
Week 6: The 4th Trimester and immediate post natal recovery practices.
NOTE: If you would like to do this course in your own time, please get in touch. The material can be sent to you in modules whenever you like, to suit your own schedule.
