This workshop will provide a holistic approach to breathing, toning, partner-assisted yoga postures, supportive massage and meditation practices to help with labour.
Birth partners/support team members will learn valuable tools to assist through pregnancy and childbirth. Most importantly, it will be a fun and loving time to bond with each other and your baby and prepare for the birth experience. Recommended for second and third trimesters of pregnancy.
Lisa received her Prana Yoga teacher certification from Shakti Mhi in 2009. In 2010, while expecting the birth of her daughter, she became a certified Yoga Birth Method™ teacher. In 2013 she began studying Mindfulness for Educators through the teachings of Thich Nhat Hahn and the Monastics of Plum Village. Lisa holds a Bachelor of Education as well as Kids’ Yoga certification. She teaches in a classical flowing style with an emphasis on breath and meditation, bringing a positive approach to the birthing process. Lisa connects the principals of yoga with pregnancy, labour and the experience of parenthood for expectant moms and their labour partners. Over the past six years she has skillfully led family yoga classes for all ages, bringing a playfulness and humour to the practice of union within ourselves, within our families and greater community.
