Pregnancy Yoga and Birth Preparation Weekend Workshop

This weekend workshop combines pregnancy yoga with birth preparation sessions. Two of each guided pregnancy yoga, meditation and relaxation sessions are provided alongside four in-depth antenatal, postnatal education and birth preparation classes.

Emphasis is placed on promoting and supporting normality, irrelevant of where you may give birth. Alongside traditional antenatal education, participants will learn a wealth of tools and natural coping techniques, including Rebozo, to ensure a positive birth experience.

This workshop is recommended for pregnant women and their birth companions wishing to find out more about alternative coping techniques for labour, gain an understanding of the process of labour and prepare their minds and bodies for birth.

No further antenatal classes required!

No previous yoga experience required!
