Yoga for Childbirth: A Three Class Partner Series

Tuesday Evenings, 7-8:15pm, Oct 6, 13, 20

Movement, breathing and meditation tools practiced in yoga can profoundly support you during childbirth! This three-part series will help expecting couples feel more confident and prepared for the journey ahead. Each 75 minute class will explore common themes around birth and best practices for both the birthing person and the supporting partner. You will learn ways to manage pain, uncertainty and negativity, and methods for giving/receiving support using movement, sound, breathing, affirmations, relaxation and more.  Because yoga is a mind and body practice, these classes will cover both the physical and psychological aspects of birth.  You will be offered a variety of practices to become more aligned with your support partner and your own inner strength and capacity.
