Pregnancy Yoga

Yogic wisdom and it’s associated embodiment and mindfulness practices have so much value for pregnant women preparing for an active, empowered birth.

I teach my signature 6-week prenatal yoga program, ‘Yoga for Empowered Birth’ about 3 times a year. This program weaves practical and helpful childbirth education with yogic practices so that you feel prepared for birth mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

This 6 week pre-natal yoga course offers a nurtured space for you to connect with your baby, your body and your breath, AND prepare for birth all at once. This is my signature, unique yoga and childbirth education course for active birth.

The course runs for 6 weeks on Wednesday’s from 5:30pm – 7:00pm (90 minute sessions). Classes held at the Australian Children’s Chiropractic Centre, Warner’s Bay, in their yoga loft. 

What we cover : 

  1. meditation to support you to connect with your body, baby and breathing
  2. yoga poses (asanas) to support you at whatever stage of pregnancy you are at, and poses for active birth
  3. pelvic floor awareness
  4. yogic pranayama (breathing) and chanting or sounding for birth and prenatally to relieve stress
  5. yoga nidra – a deep relaxation technique; and,
  6. childbirth education. 

This will be an ideal space to connect with like-minded pregnant women in an intimate atmosphere, and beautiful space. The environment will also foster community building within the group so that your village is already forming. 

This yoga course is based on the philosophy of yoga for active birth initiated by Janet Balaskas. Not only does an active birth philosophy focus on positions for supporting active birth but also on cultivating belief and trust in your body and the natural and involuntary nature of birth. The yoga-based positions and philosophy will encourage you to tune into your instincts for birthing.   

“Keeping active during labour and adopting natural, upright or crouching birth positions is the safest, most enjoyable, most economical and sensible way for the majority of women to give birth.” Janet Balaskas

 

“I took Clancy’s pre-natal yoga course from 34 weeks right up until 39 weeks, and I know it played a huge role in preparing and supporting me to have an all natural, drug and intervention free VBAC (vaginal birth after previous caesarean) of my beautiful, big 4.2kg boy, right on time! Not only did I feel physically prepared and confident with the right strength and flexibility to birth my baby, but I felt more emotionally and spiritually connected. Being my second pregnancy, Clancy’s sessions were a beautiful opportunity to take time out from the busy world of toddlers, work and a million other things, just for myself and to connect with my unborn baby. Thank you so much Clancy!!”

The weekly pregnancy yoga classes you held were a wonderful and relaxing time that I enjoyed coming to every week. It was lovely spending an hour for myself, connecting with my baby and being in the same space as a group of beautiful women all on the same journey. The space you created was nurturing and supportive and I left feeling calm and refreshed every week. I am grateful for all the info I gained from the pregnancy oils session as well as the yoga classes.”
