Couples Yoga For Labor: A class for your birth partner to connect with you, baby and to feel empowered.
Couples will practice breath work, yoga poses, massage, and relaxation techniques in this fun and informative workshop. We will address the common discomforts of pregnancy and labor and build a toolkit for each couple to take home. Partners will learn ways to support the pregnant and laboring woman in yoga poses, to help adjust her body for relaxation, and to safely massage and support her during this special time in her life. No yoga experience is required. Please wear comfortable clothing you can move freely in.
