Safely support and strengthen your continuously changing body.
Take some time out from your busy day to connect with yourself and your baby, learning mindful techniques that result in a confident and fearless birth. These classes will guide you through gentle movements and breath work that benefit both mum and baby during pregnancy and birth. Through the use of repetitive and sweeping movements, we are able to effectively access the lymphatic nodes. Lymph is well known to remove toxins from the blood stream, thus supporting an optimally functioning immune system during pregnancy. You will also be given the tools to ease the common discomforts that can accompany pregnancy. Be immersed in a nurturing environment where you can connect with other mums, building a mutually beneficial community of support and emotional comfort. How can yoga support this journey? - Being present in our own bodies, thus shifting from reactivity to response. - Learning discernment of what is ours and what is not, cultivating clear boundaries in family life. - Acceptance that self-care is not selfish, but a necessity in order to be able to give with joy and ease. - Learning the art of true rest through ancient and proven wisdom. - Feeling nourished and vibrant through increased life force energy (Prana in Sanskrit). - Energy channels are cleared, toned and strengthened. - Fascia (connective tissue), muscles and ligaments are hydrated, released, balanced and strengthened. - The physical, mental and emotional body are prepared for birth and beyond. - Being part of a community means mutual accountability, a place to feel supported, a place to learn, love and grow. TESTIMONIAL "Katia's pregnancy yoga is a rare find in Auckland. I have been doing yoga for over 10 years all over the world and have found Katia to be one of a kind. At a time when you need it the most, I found her class supportive, relaxing, and rejuvenating. She has a beautiful philosophy on life and in yoga. I always went feeling terrible but came out feeling amazing - she is the best. I recommend her as a yoga teacher, but also as a pregnancy yoga teacher."
