Birthing Lightly with Yoga classes provide women with a safe environment in which to explore their feelings & to adapt to the changes in their bodies. Yoga can provide a constant thread of stability. The principles of yoga include balance, awareness & respect. Women are empowered to feel confident in their ability to give birth. Yoga postures & movements will provide more space for the baby & alleviate many pregnancy discomforts. Every class ends with a deep relaxation allowing the body to release tensions & the mind to become still. Both mother and baby are nourished and energy is renewed.
