Calm Mom, Calm Baby, Calm Birth with Bec Conant

July 26 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


A Zoom invitation email will go out to pre-registered students 1 hour before the class, and again 15 minutes before the class begins. Please make sure we have the correct email address on file for you so you receive your invitation! Contact the studio at 617-661-6565 with any questions.

This workshop provides an opportunity for expectant moms to release physical and mental tension and to learn tools helpful for labor and birth. The ability to deeply relax has a direct impact on both the length and pain of a woman’s labor. With deep relaxation moms are able to release into the flow of labor and even (sometimes) feel less discomfort.

This workshop will include:

  1. Restorative yoga postures useful for labor and birth

  2. The mechanics of the Fear-Tension-Pain cycle and how to reverse this

  3. Visualizations for relaxation and calm birthing

  4. Pranayama for further relaxation and to work with the body’s contractions

  5. Body scan relaxation for daily restorative practice

Restorative yoga is a fully supported style of yoga designed to promote deep relaxation throughout the nervous system. We will use props to create the shape of yoga postures and then allow gravity to do any opening. This practice is beneficial throughout pregnancy, and no prior yoga experience is necessary.

Cost: $35
