Empower yourself & your support team to use familiar, simple, yet highly effective yoga tools in labor
Yoga to Support Childbirth Workshop:
Bring your partner and/or doula to share or review with them all the tools we learn in our MamasteTM prenatal yoga classes. This workshop is unique as we will use simple techniques that you will have practiced or will start practicing weekly in our prenatal yoga classes. Partners will also learn yoga philosophy and tools that are not taught in other childbirth classes.
Your support team will leave class feeling empowered as they will "have a flexible plan" to use in labor. They will have learned how to cue you through the different breathing techniques we practice in class each week-techniques that will feel familiar and comfortable to you by the time you are in labor.

By the end of class, they will know how and when to use those techniques to support you in each phase of labor. They will feel confident about what to look for, expect, and do at each stage. We will not be doing lots of yoga postures, but there will be some practice of positions for labor.
