$115 per couple
This workshop provides an opportunity for couples to enhance their awareness and confidence in pregnancy and birth. Couples use Partner Yoga in a light fun atmosphere. Along with Partner Yoga, the workshop will also focus on different ways to connect and use Yoga off the mat and during Birth.
Topics covered include:
-Yoga sequences and postures which could be useful during Labor and Delivery
-Alternative Birthing positions and how to get in and out of them
-Intuitive massage techniques to relieve pain and increase endorphins
-Counter pressure techniques useful for relieving Labor pain
-Vocal toning to facilitate relaxation and opening.
Partner Yoga is a fun practice of yoga postures done in physical contact with another person. Students experience a deeper sense of release and stretching through sharing weight and touch with their partners. The practice helps develop a strong feeling of connection both on the mat, and afterwards.
