Pregnancy Yoga“Calm and balanced before delivery”
Yoga Spot offers a complete pregnancy yoga course of 9 classes followed by a reunion with the newborn babies. Pregnancy yoga offers you a calm break during the week where you can be quiet with your pregnancy and with the new life that’s growing inside you. This course will make you more aware of your body and breathing. You develop a calm and balanced attitude which increases confidence in the delivery. The practical preparation also helps you when the real work begins. The group will consist of other mums-to-be who have about the same due date as you. This creates a deeper connection and makes it more fun.
What does the course look like?
This course is divided into two parts. In the first part, the focus is on yoga exercises for the pregnant body. You learn various poses that prevent or reduce complaints related to pregnancy. Also, you practise how to breathe, move and sit easily. In the second part, you will prepare for your delivery. You will learn everything about the practical side of childbirth and learn poses that will help ease your contractions and get tips on how to push. Finally, we will discuss the purpose of pain and how to deal with it.
An important part of this whole course is the breathing exercises. By repeatedly practising them during the course they will become automatic, easy to do and during your delivery you won’t even think about it. This will allow you to experience the birth of your child in a conscious and relaxed way. Two-partner classes are part of the pregnancy yoga course. By being informed about practicalities and practising breathing and massaging techniques, you will be well-prepared for the delivery as a couple.
