Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga @
ACT Yoga and Meditation Centre
I am a yoga and meditation teacher with three decades experience here in Canberra. As well as teaching normal yoga classes, I have specialised in teaching pregnant women, and mums & bubs.
I have been fortunate to be a support person for numerous women during their births and have also trained in Ayurvedic post-natal recovery care. Drawing on this experience I can offer you, whether you are new to yoga or an experienced practitioner, ways to apply the beneficial practices of yoga, breathing and meditation to build confidence and enhance your unique preparation for birth and motherhood. I create a friendly and relaxed environment in the comfort of a home studio, close to the city centre, where you can meet and practice yoga with like minded women. You are very welcome...
All classes are currently live online with Zoom
Some Impressive Research
CAN PRENATAL YOGA REDUCE LABOR PAIN & IMPROVE BIRTH OUTCOMES?
This randomized control trial of 200 primips at ≥30-Weeks, all with no prior yoga experience, had some fascinating results. These 20yr-35yr expectant women, had six 30-min sessions from 30-39 weeks’ gestation. Outcomes with these women was they required fewer inductions, had shorter labors, less analgesics, more vaginal births, less C-sections, better pain tolerance, fewer low-weight babes. Impressive results for only 3 hours of yoga over 10 weeks!
