with Steph Bour
Goal: Empowering women throughout the journey of Pregnancy and Birth by teaching them how to maintain a serene mind in a healthy, strong, yet relaxed body.
Prenatal Yoga is a supportive practice, beneficial for both mothers and babies. It uses physical movements, breathing and meditation techniques to safely address the changing needs of the mother’s body, enhancing her mind/body connection. It is an excellent labor preparation building endurance, and giving the mother the skill to deeply relax, helping to reduce her fears and apprehensions.
Each Week, a 90 min workshop dives into a different thematic (i.e. the pregnant body changes, the pelvic floor, conscious respiration, low back care, pain coping strategies for labor ) with an education part -- a short lecture on that day specific topic -- followed by a full practice ending with a deep guided relaxation. Then, we will allow time to share and connect as a community of pregnant women, in a friendly atmosphere.
