Time: Saturdays 9.00 - 10.30 am
In our classes we use yoga postures that best suit in the process of preparation for labour. Every asana can then be used in Active Labour, like hip openers and ones that relieve pressure on the lower back. During each session we will repeat some specific exercises, so Mothers-to-be can develop useful habit, which will assist her during contractions.
We use pranayam (breath pattern), meditation and relaxation to help adjusting to change, relieve tension, increase the flow of oxytocin (hormone of bonding and love) and help sustain lung expansion.
Our pregnancy yoga is based on Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. Every kriya (set) is aimed at a specific aspect of life, i.e. set to relieve anger; electromagnetic field and the heart centre; for lower spine and pain elimination; for the glands the circulation and the meditative mind and so on.
3 minute challenge arm meditations that practiced in the class specifically designed to help become more familiar with the length of a contraction, to build up the nervous system and stamina.
Creating a sacred space.
You may wish to light up a candle, incense and make sure that you will not be disturbed during this time, i.e turn off the phone, door bell etc. or simply delegate this things to someone else.
Make sure you have enough space to stretch up standing, stretch along the floor, as well as bringing arms out to the side.
You will need a blanket and a bottle of water ready for the practice.
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. No need for Lycra :-)
Children are very welcome into the space, however be aware, they might disrupt your routine. It will not bother us too much as we can mute your mic :-)
£10 per class or £48 for 6 consecutive sessions.
Please let me know if you are facing financial difficulties to arrange a different amount or a schedule.
