Baby Yoga ( 08:30 - 09:30 )

New Borns:

  • The postnatal period is one of great change and adjustment.
  • During this time a woman is vulnerable to stress and strain on many different levels; postnatal yoga is gentle and therapeutic.
  • The emphasis is upon nurturing and support: at a physical level the practices are designed to promote ease and comfort: stabilising the pelvis, toning the abdominal region, and supporting the lower back.
  • There are also practices to lift the spirits and re-energise, alternating with periods of recuperative rest.
  • At this stage the moms are feeling a little more energised than in the immediate postnatal period, so their practices involve deeper stretching and more vigorous, revitalising yoga postures and breathing. The babies enjoy some of the same rhymes and rhythmic movements as the littler babies, but also are challenged with other practices to assist in the development of crawling prowess.
  • Yoga for two practices develop a shared sense of fun, whilst improving balance and co-ordination. Mom‚Äôs relaxation times are integrated with a special play time for curious babes, and we enjoy a quiet time at the end of the class.
  • These classes are a relaxing weekly outing for moms with a busy schedule, and are also a helpful baby oriented event in the weekly pattern of moms who have returned to work.
  • Babies should be at least 6 weeks and up to 8 months. In one session, activities may vary for newborn and sitting babies
  • To confirm your place, kindly complete and submit¬†this booking form.

Yoga Mama Womb Yoga ( 18:00 - 19:15 )
  • Bio and info on Yoga Mama
  • J'anaki Ashi-Ra began her personal yoga practice in 2004 at the Sivananda Yoga Centre in London. After many years of enduring the corporate world she decided to embark upon a journey of the Soul, completing travels throughout Asia, and most notably the birth-place of Yoga: India.
  • Whilst in India J'anaki had the good fortune to study with many influential Yogis and then immediately went on to complete a rigorous Yoga Teacher Training at the Sivananda Yoga Ashram in New York in 2008. In mid-2009 J'anaki returned to South Africa and continues to further her training under an esteemed Master of the Satyananda Yoga tradition.¬†
  • About Yoga Mama
  • Although still teaching classical Hatha Yoga, J'anaki was inspired by her own Pregnancy Yoga classes¬†
  • undertaken in Ireland¬† (through www.sitaram.org)¬† to begin teaching prenatal yoga in South Africa in 2010.¬†
  • Yoga Mama‚Äôs approach to pregnancy yoga emphasises physical and mental well-being, as well as complete confidence in Oneself throughout pregnancy by utilising specific yogic techniques.
  • These techniques have been proven by thousands of¬† pregnant mothers since Yoga Mama‚Äôs inception to be extremely beneficial during pregnancy and birth.
  • About Pregnancy 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 prepares the body for squatting and other birthing positions.
  • Gentle Stretches and strong postures - maintains supple and toned muscles. Builds strength.
  • Breathing ‚Äď 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. ‚ÄėBirthing breaths‚Äô aid in the preparation for a calm birthing.
  • Yoga Nidra ‚Äď During this relaxation technique one gains an abundance of energy from gaining the equivalent of 2 hours deep sleep in just 20 minutes! Yoga Nidra¬† also regulates fluctuating blood pressure and¬† promotes inner communication between you and your child, as well as assisting in the release of 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.

HypnoBirthing at Genesis Clinic ( 19:00 - 22:00 )

HypnoBirthing¬ģ

Theoni is one of the¬†few certified Hypnobirthing¬ģ practitioners in South Africa. Using Hypnobirthing¬ģ methods she teaches mothers and birth companions techniques for safe and satisfying birthing through guided imagery, visualization, and special breathing.

About HypnoBirthing:

HypnoBirthing involves teaching the technique of self-hypnosis. Through self-hypnosis you achieve a state of deep relaxation, similar to watching the flames in a fire, or the waves crashing in the ocean. It teaches you how to release all prior programming about birth and how to trust your body and work with it. The HypnoBirthing relaxation techniques allow you to let go of fear and other harmful emotions. With lessened tension, your body is freed to tap into your own natural birthing instincts and to function as it is designed to do in childbirth.

The Benefits:

· Improved health and better sleep during pregnancy

· Educates you about birthing, allowing you to make more informed birthing choices

· Shortens labour

· Teaches deep levels of relaxation that decrease pain

· Reduces the need for pain-relief or intervention

· Reduces fatigue during labour

· Better recovery after birth and less risk for post-natal depression

· Babies are calmer possibly due to diminished trauma at birth.

 

How it works:

You can start HypnoBirthingÒ any time after your 20 week scan, to 36 weeks. The course consists of 4 weekly sessions and can either be held in a group or privately. Groups are up to a maximum of five couples so that there is time for each of you to have your concerns addressed. You will be provided with the official Hypnobirthing book by Marie Morgan, 2 x Relaxation CD’s, and all course materials.

You will learn:

· How your body works and what happens during pregnancy and labour

· Techniques of deep relaxation and how these can assist you during your labour

· How to create a calm, serene birthing environment

· Massage techniques for the birthing partner to assist during labour

· Advice on choosing your healthcare provider and birthing place

· How to write a flexible birthing plan, taking account of your preferences

· How to look after yourself with exercise and nutrition.

Course Details: Courses held at Genesis Clinic. 5 Northwold Drive, Saxonwold, cnr Jan Smuts 011 646 3923
