Arin Thrine – Prenatal Yoga: Practices For a Sacred Experience
Saturday, February 9, 2013 from 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM (MST)
PRENATAL YOGA: Practices For A Sacred Experience Pregnancy and childbirth are two of the most natural, normal occurrences in life. Practicing yoga while pregnant supports this truth and is deeply beneficial and rewarding for both mother and baby. We will explore the anatomy and physiology of pregnancy, what is occurring during labor mentally, emotionally and physically and the importance of staying relaxed and centered in order for labor and delivery to progress smoothly, peacefully, naturally and without unnecessary intervention. You will learn how the yogic practices of asana, pranayama, meditation and mantra will help you create a healthy, comfortable and vibrant pregnancy and prepare you for the demands of labor and delivery as well as shorten the postpartum recovery period and give you tools to replenish energy that can be sapped by the demands of caring for a newborn. Discover how birth can truly become a transformational, empowering and sacred experience. This class is designed for anyone who is pregnant, may become pregnant, yoga teachers who teach or want to teach prenatal classes, healthcare professionals, midwives or anyone with an interest in birth.
