Partner Class Prenatal Yoga

Prenatal Partner Class

In no-time well-prepared for birth

Partner Class (2 hr group class in English)

In this compact Prenatal Partner Class we prepare you for giving birth together. We discuss the process of birth and its phases, how to cope with different types of contractions, we practice breathing techniques, yoga poses and movements which support dilation and look at ways in which your (birth) partner can support you best during all of it.

You can take the class together with either your life partner or your birth partner; the person that will support you during birth, be it a friend, your mother or your doula. Afterwards you receive a handout and e-mail with links to documents, instruction movies and images.

Please note: In case you did not have the chance to take any of our regular prenatal yoga classes; we suggest you follow the more elaborate private Birth Prep Course instead, as in this course we have double the time and ample personal attention to bring you all the information and practice we find critical. 

  •  What we do in a Partner Class:

    • BREATHING TECHNIQUES to remain as relaxed as possible during labour and contractions.
