Prenatal + Postpartum Yoga
 

Prenatal Yoga can be a great way for expecting mothers to stay active and healthy during their pregnancy, while also preparing for labor and delivery.

One of the main benefits of Prenatal Yoga is that it can help improve posture, which can be especially important during pregnancy as the body undergoes a number of changes. Additionally, it can help increase circulation and endurance, which helps prepare the body for the physical demands of labor and delivery. 

Breathing techniques and relaxation practices are also an important part of Prenatal Yoga, as they help reduce stress and anxiety, promote relaxation, and improve overall well-being for both the mother and the baby. 

Prenatal Yoga is helpful for reducing physical discomfort during pregnancy, such as back pain, heartburn, constipation and cramps. And finally it can provide a supportive community for expecting mothers to connect with others who are going through a similar experience. This can be especially important for first-time mothers who may have questions or concerns about their pregnancy and childbirth. 

In Postpartum Yoga, the focus will be on supporting the physical and emotional well-being of new mothers. This includes exercises that target the abdominal and pelvic floor muscles, which have been weakened during pregnancy and childbirth. Additionally, gentle stretches and postural corrections can help alleviate any discomfort or pain that may be present. 

 

Yoga can be a great way to bond with your child and connect with other mothers in your community. All Postpartum Classes (Mama Baby Classes) allow he baby to be present, and incorporate exercises that involve holding, cuddling and interacting with the baby.

Courses + Workshops
 

"I participated in Barbara's Prenatal-workshop and left feeling so empowered for what is yet to come in my pregnancy. We ran through how to better understand your pregnancy by connecting with body, mind and spirit as we venture through this beautiful journey. I could not have asked for a more personal, insightful and thoughtful workshop. From pregnancy yoga basics to diet, nutrition and self-care,
Barbara explained the most important aspects of what to come in an understandable way but with a breadth of knowledge behind it.
 
Not only did we connect, share tea and learn much about what's to come, Barbara also left us with a very detailed brochure with everything we'd discussed and more. I could not recommend this workshop more highly.
Thanks, Barbara!"

The magic of a women's circle.
 

Every Women's Circle carries a wonderful power that nourishes and protects everyone in the circle. To ensure that this power is preserved and experienced at every meeting, it is important to respect a common framework. For this purpose, Circle Keepers all over the world have compiled the collected experiences from hundreds of Circles and formulated Circle Agreements based on them. 

Before the beginning of each Circle meeting, we remember these agreements and only those who fully agree to them are invited to participate in the Circle.

These agreements help to create a free and deep exchange, a space of mutual respect and compassion.

  • We speak from the heart, honestly and sincerely.

  • We ask for what we need and give what we can give.

  • We take responsibility for ourselves and support each other in doing the same. 

  • We listen attentively and with our hearts, in an attitude of empathy and appreciation.

  • We do not comment, judge or give advice.

  • What is said in the circle remains confidential and is never brought out into the open.

Sometimes the wish arises in a circle meeting to add further points to the agreements, which is agreed upon together with the participants. 

We will gather.

Yoga Sadhana for women
 

Yoga can be a wonderful practice for women during pregnancy and after giving birth. A women's body goes through significant changes during this time, which affects their Yoga practice (Yoga Sadhana).

It's important for women to listen to their bodies and make adjustments to their practice as needed. This may mean slowing down, being more mindful and attentive, and focusing on areas of discomfort or healing.

In a Prenatal or Postpartum Yoga Class we usually practice a mix of many Yoga types, including also Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga. These practices focus on breathing techniques, gentle movement and relaxation which can help women manage stress, reduce pain and discomfort and improve sleep.

In terms of practicing yoga with a baby in the womb, there are certain precautions that should be taken. It's important to avoid any positions that put pressure on the abdomen, such as twists or inversions. It is also important to avoid overheating and stay well-hydrated.

Overall, yoga can be a wonderful practice for women during pregnancy and after giving birth, as long as it's approached with caution and awareness of the changes happening in the body. In case you have any doubt, it's always a good idea to check with your healthcare provider before starting a Prenatal or Postpartum practice.

I grow.
I love.
I nurture.
