95% of our subconscious conditioned responses are embedded in the last trimester of pregnancy and the first 7 years of life. There is no manual so to approach pregnancy and mothering mindfully gives your child the most amazing headstart in life. Breath is life and a mother’s deep breath goes much further than making a contraction easier. Start this incredible journey now…
Whilst pregnant you are going through a transitional period where your physical and mental well being are so important for you and your growing little one. Yoga will increase your self- awareness as your body goes through these changes, and help you cope with them and your emotions pre-birth. Work with a women’s health specialist and ensure you are in good hands as you progress through pregnancy.
Yoga will also: –
- help establish a calm mind, inner balance and strength to take you through the pregnancy and after birth
- Encourages lymphatic drainage reducing fluid retention and swollen hands and feet
- Encourage deep relaxation through proper diaphragmatic breathing, helping to stabilize emotions and deal with tiredness
- tones your pelvic floor muscles vital to support your uterus and other organs during pregnancy, and increases their elasticity preparing them for birth
- helps your body to recover more easily post birth
8 week course (join in anytime) Sundays 5:30pm 28 October – 16 December
Lon Gibbons, your teacher, is a women’s health specialist trained in the revolutionary ‘Pelfix Technique’, pregnancy massage, and has training in Spiral Stabilization, MUTU System (TM) and Nutritious Movement (TM) to ensure you are practicing the very best in movement for your pelvic floor, core and all the muscles supporting your pelvis for an easier birth.
