Partner Prenatal Workshop at 8 Limbs Yoga
Oct 6, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm| $55
Prepare for birth through yoga! This partner workshop is open to pregnant people and their partners (partner can mean anyone: spouse, partner, doula, friend, or anyone who will be providing birth support during childbirth) and to all levels of yoga experience. No prior yoga instruction necessary.
Taught by various 8 Limbs Prenatal instructors over the course of the year, each workshop will have its own flavor, but all will offer you the opportunity to explore the intersecting pathways of support during labor and childbirth and yoga. Partner Prenatal Yoga will offer the opportunity to explore the physical practice of yoga through warm-up poses and partner yoga poses. The session will also include yoga practices such as breath and meditation as an opportunity to find connection and support.
Through thought provoking questions, simple massage, and time to share one-on-one with your partner, you will also be given the chance to touch in to your expectations, excitements and fears about your upcoming birth experience and becoming a parent (or becoming a parent again!). Pre-registration is recommended as these workshops often fill and are limited in size to make room for partner yoga.
While this workshop may be more applicable for those late in their 2nd trimester and into their 3rd trimester, all are welcome as it works with your schedule. Plan to join us for Partner Prenatal Yoga during your pregnancy––a great “date” for couples and also a wonderful way to connect with someone on your birth support team.
Cost: $55 – for two participants
About the Teacher: Megan Sloan
Megan Sloan, 500 hr E-RYT, RPYT, has been teaching Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga since 2009. She did her first training with 8 Limbs Yoga Centers as an exploration to deepen her studies as a yoga teacher which then blossomed into a passion for supporting mothers in empowering their experiences of pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood through the tools of yoga. She has since attended many births as a doula and has had the humbling opportunity to witness and support mamas in childbirth in a variety of settings from home births, to birth centers and hospital births. She currently teaches weekly prenatal yoga classes and offers regular Partner Prenatal Yoga Workshops. She also welcomed a daughter in 2017 and outside of the joys of new motherhood she also finds time to continue teaching through her business Be Strong Mama.
