Yoga Birth represents a collection of services that support and empower expectant moms throughout the childbearing cycle. Underlying each of these services is a belief that pregnancy and motherhood is a normal, healthy life event, an opportunity for self-discovery and transformation, and an initiation into a value system that respects and honors women's creative power. Rooted in the philosophies and practices of yoga, my approach balances knowledge and intuition as complimentary forces guiding women toward taking personal responsibility for the quality of their birth and their lives. I aim to hold the space for a shift in how birth is experienced - eschewing a fear based paradigm and creating a model of consciousness, empowerment, joy, calm, ease, trust and love - no matter the method by which baby is born.
• YOGA NIDRA January 30th 6-8 PM
Holiday Yoga Nidra was such a success, we're going to keep it going all year long (one Friday a month). Yoga Nidra is a sleep-based meditation technique that will help you sleep better, have more energy, increase focus, creativity and productivity, break free of unconscious habits, awaken dormant potential and promote deep healing. Yoga Nidra is an ideal practice for busy, stressed out moms and expectant moms looking to prepare for a healthy birth. Lie down, rest, relax - DO NOTHING - and reap the fruits of this amazing practice.
" Thank you for Yoga Nidra! Last night's yoga class was amazing--what a gift you have for leading guided relaxation/meditation." - Jennifer D.
Consistent, non-judgemental, loving support during labor can help a woman and her partner ease the fears and pain of childbirth and dramatically increase the chances of a healthy, positive outcome.
Childbirth is a sacred event that imprints itself in a deep and lasting way on the mother, her partner, and especially the baby. Effective education is vital to setting the stage for a healthy, conscious, empowering birth.
Practicing yoga during pregnancy is an unparalleled way to stay physically comfortable, emotionally centered and spiritually connected during a deeply transformative time of a woman's life.
