Yoga in Pregnancy
We can? Of course. And not just for those women who did yoga before they got pregnant, but for all those who have never been involved in any form of exercise.
Yoga for the time of childbirth … For easier childbirth… To gain full awareness of our body and to be able to manage it even during the difficult time of childbirth.
And of course Yoga for after giving birth … so that we can quickly return to our pre-pregnancy condition and why not, to an even better one.
Birthlight Yoga for pregnant women is a form of yoga accessible to all women, whether they are professionals or young in the field. It uses an innovative system adapting classical yoga from pre-conception to the postpartum period, innovating both with the use of micro-movements and with yoga flow sequences.
In the mood for care, relaxation and connection with ourselves and our baby, Birthlight departments offer support to the woman during pregnancy, which is often lacking even in maternity services.
Yoga is increasingly recommended for pregnant women because it is a gentle way to maintain or improve fitness while reducing stress through breathing and relaxation techniques.
Birthlight Yoga is the first in the line of selecting and adapting yoga practices that are safer and more suitable for pregnant women. Hip rotations, movement sequences and the birthright practice, in general, have been developed to avoid pressure and improve the general condition of the body. Yoga breathing techniques have been selected and adapted to enhance a woman’s ability to breathe in gentle and effective ways that promote physical and emotional well-being. Finally, instead of focusing only on strengthening the pelvis, Birthlight improves its elasticity and stability which is the best basis for childbirth and of course for the postpartum period.
Birthlight’s approach is holistic: we believe in addressing the needs of every woman and baby, through support that concerns not only the pregnant woman, the family but also all those who have a direct relationship with her.
We share the view that normal childbirth is desired by the majority of women, but every woman’s choices are deeply respected. The positive, energetic but also relaxed atmosphere of the Birthlight classes aims to convey a common sense of celebration and enjoyment of this very special moment of transformation and development. All babies deserve a warm and affectionate welcome in this world! And their mom paid due attention…
Birthlight has been recognized by the British Council for Yoga Therapy (BCYT) and the Federation of Prenatal Teachers (FEDANT).
And our name refers both to the “light” birth, without excessive pressure but also to the approach of its spiritual dimension, which is often neglected.
