Bearing Witness for Birthwork: A Prenatal Yoga Series
“The experiences of conception, gestation, and birth are remarkable events in [someone’s] life: they are simultaneously deeply visceral and intensely spiritual.” -Dr. Uma Dinsmore Tuli, PhD, Yoni Shakti
This 4-week prenatal yoga series is designed to cultivate space and offer support to pregnant individuals as they navigate the physical and emotional transitions from pregnancy, through birth, and on to parenting. Open to pregnant individuals and their birth partners of all abilities, each week of the series will focus on a different aspect of mind/body connection throughout the childbearing year.
Practices will explore making space for change and creation in the bodies, hearts, and minds of parents for babies. Caitlin, who has been a birthworker and yoga teacher since 2011, brings knowledge, experience, and intuition to classes; every week starts by sharing needs and establishing connection, and practices are modified to accommodate each individual. This is an intentional opportunity for expecting parents to celebrate and embrace their changing bodies and changing lives, and to practice engaging fearlessly with the power of this transformative process. Prenatal yoga at Abide is body positive, trauma informed, and inclusive of diverse gender and family identities.
