This workshop provides an opportunity for couples to enhance awareness of and confidence in pregnancy, labour and birth using ancient techniques of yoga.

• relaxation

The presence and encouragement of a woman’s partner is a powerful aid to the birthing process. Partners will be encouraged to understand how to support the birthing mother with confidence and sensitivity. This awareness and presence can lessen the requirement for medical interventions. Calm and flexibility ease the birthing process, reducing pain and increasing the joy of giving birth.

Deepen your relationship with yourselves and your unborn child. Beneficial at any time during your pregnancy as well as for 2nd and 3rd pregnancies too! No previous experience necessary.

Facilitated by Mukti Legerska and Anja Foley – certified and experienced yoga teachers.
