Look on the Pregnancy page for details of birth preparation workshops that I run for couples to prepare for childbirth. We will spend 2-3 hours going over birthing positions, massage and relaxation techniques, breathing, all of which your partner will be able to join in with to support you.
- Massage techniques for pregnancy and labour
- Yoga practices to assist at each stage of labour and manage pain.
- Birthing positions (using supports, including birthing balls)
- Breathing, visualisation and relaxation techniques to promote gentle birth
- Top tips for birthing partners
- Handouts to take away and practice.
- £75 per couple in your own home. Or £45 per couple in a group.
I am happy to say that I have uploaded a recording of a visualisation recorded in my pregnancy yoga class on 6th August 2018. It is 11 minutes long and can be listened to at anytime during pregnancy (or even not in pregnancy!). It will help you visualise your body opening up gently to allow your baby into the world.
See the pregnancy page on my website http://www.bristolyogabliss.co.uk/pregnancy-yoga for the recording.
So it is great to be back teaching yoga for pregnancy and the next 6 week course will start on Monday 9th July, 5.30-6.45pm. £60. We do pelvic floor exercises, breathing techniques, general exercises that are beneficial in pregnancy and birth preparation.
After a very long break, I am restarting the pregnancy yoga class. It will be on Mondays from 5.30-6.45pm. The next course starts on Monday 14th May and is £60 for 6 weeks. I’m looking forward to doing it again and meeting the next generation of mums-to-be! Sally x
Finally, after about 8 years, I am putting the price of the Monday night class up. I have tried to keep it as low as I can for as long as possible but costs are going up, I’m afraid. It still compares very favourably with yoga classes in town.
The Monday class will now be £7 for an hour. 7-8pm
I’d like to recommend the following website for lovely meditation cloaks and cushions. www.liveup.io
They are designed by Anthony Farrow and his partner Rita. Anthony is the son of one of my longest standing yoga students, Ligia, who comes to the Monday night class.
You can also find their products here:
There is also some free meditation guidance/inspiration here: www.instagram.com/live_up_io/
Enjoy the products and let them know what you think of them!
love and light, Sally
Following a request, I’ve decided to try and put up some of the meditations and readings that I do in class every week. So here is the link for this week’s class:
This week we did a meditation from Oriah Mountain Dreamer’s book The Dance. Do let me know if you have any comments or requests. See you soon! xx
For those of you who come to my Monday night class regularly, you will be familiar with our kneeling sun salutation – this is it in a nutshell. It’s suitable for anyone really and a lovely way to stretch and wake up the body. No difficult back bends involved, just focus on the breath.
Inhale arms overhead to start, exhale forwards into child’s pose, inhale onto hand and knees and arch forwards, exhale into downward facing dog, inhale hands and knees down, exhale round your back and roll back to child’s pose. Keep a gentle lift in the abdominal/pelvic floor muscles, particularly as you move up and down from child’s pose.
