Mothers Birth Circle Workshop ( 10:00 - 12:00 )

Mothers Birthing Circle Workshop
Motherhood Unfolding & Becoming

This unique and nurturing workshop is for all mothers. Pre-crawling babies attend with their moms. Whether motherhood feels natural & wonderful or feels like the steepest and loneliest learning curve you've ever had; this workshop is for you. Self care is vital to a fulfilling experience as a mother. Each workshop is different depending on the mothers in the group. Every mother has her own journey. At the core is the spirit of unfolding - discovering who you are becoming, what you are letting go of, and defining how you want to be as women and as a mother. 

Together in a small group we will explore:

  • Birth of a Mother - who am I now?
  • Fears - coping with feeling overwhelmed
  • Job Description - good is good enough!
  • Changing Relationships - with family, friends, lovers, co-workers and self

Testimonials

  • "My favourite was the structured exercises that required deep thinking and introspection followed by group sharing. They got me to focus and to listen to my inner voice, which is so important, yet so neglected in the mad race of looking after babies...To sum it up - the mothers group was an enriching, educational and fun, life-saver!" ~ Joanne

    "I loved being with other like minded women and I felt so much support. It really helped me feel good and confident as a mother. Thank you Sally" ~ Theresa

PRENATAL YOGA

Recommended by most doctors and midwives, prenatal yoga offers a multitude of benefits to both mother and baby throughout pregnancy, during birth and beyond:

 

 

  • Joint exercises - perfect for poor circulation, swelling/water retention and excellent to improve mobility. Also enhances squatting and other birthing positions.
  • Gentle Stretching - maintains supple and toned muscles.
  • Breathing – balances the autonomic nervous system which regulates the major systems of the body and controls hormonal secretions. Deep breathing increases the intake of oxygen to both mother and baby. ‘Birthing breaths’ aid in the preparation for a calm birthing.
  • Yoga Nidra - Blood pressure is also lowered and during this relaxation technique and one gains the equivalent of 4 hours deep sleep. Yoga Nidra also promotes inner communication with your child and assists in releasing any impressions associated with the fear of birthing.
  • In addition, by developing a deeper awareness of your body, a powerful connection between a mother and her child is established.
