It's time to get connected to the part of your body through which your baby is born. So many of us are disconnected, misinformed and confused about how our vaginas work and how we can work with them.
This workshop is for you if you have thought any of the following questions:
-How is my baby going to get out of my vagina?
-How will I handle the sensations of my vagina opening?
-I am afraid of tearing or injuring my pelvic floor?
-Are you interested in a more satisfying prenatal and postpartum sex life?
-Would you like to learn skills to cultivate long term pelvic health?
In this safe, confidential, supportive environment, you'll have an opportunity to take an inward journey (fully clothed) to expand your capacity to open more easily for your baby, your pleasure and your power. We'll illuminate and begin to release any shame, suffering, negative beliefs, traumas and unconscious physiological patterns that could make it difficult for us to open and accept the intensity of birth.
-Content covered in these sessions is included in the Details tab.
-This series is for all pregnant people, as well as birth workers with vaginas.
-Facilitators are professionals who may have their own private practice. They may use their discretion to determine whether an additional fee is needed when their expertise is solicited outside of class.
With lots of humor, compassion, and levity, we'll practice the following:
-Simple yoga poses
-Fun exercises in class and at home
This is an invitation to get real and vulnerable with yourself, and the people in the room, with the intention of having a more empowered and enlightened experience of birth.
While class is held virtually, you will need some props. Ideally, you would have as much of the following as possible. If you don't have props, you can get creative!
-A yoga mat
-Two blocks of the same size, or two piles of hardcover books ready to use instead of blocks. A small step stool could also work.
-A bolster or a couple of thick pillows or cushions from your sofa.
-A couple of blankets, or big bath/ beach towels, or tightly woven wool or cotton blankets.
-If you happen to have a big ball/ birthing ball and or foam roller at home, those could be useful too.
-And since I will be recommending that you have these props for life beyond the class, and to practice and support you in birth, it might be worthwhile to invest in them. I really like the props from Hugger Mugger. I like the “standard yoga bolsters” They also have lots of blocks and blankets to choose from! Sports Basement as well as most natural foods stores sell yoga props.
