About The Class
The Shakti Prenatal Yoga Method doubles as a prenatal fitness class, and a birth readiness program. Moms are prepared to approach birth and motherhood with calm and confidence. Each class begins with a birth preparation topic, followed by a series of yoga movements and breath practices, and ends with a guided relaxation session. These calming and strengthening prenatal classes are designed to optimize expectant mothers’ physical and mental health while promoting the bond between mother and child. Breathing exercises are emphasized throughout the class to calm the mind, and prepare the body for delivery. Each movement is carefully chosen to stretch and strengthen muscles needed to support the body during pregnancy and childbirth. Yoga maneuvers to encourage baby into ideal birth position, and to tone and create range of motion in the muscles that support the pelvis, including the pelvic floor, are highlighted. The Shakti Yoga Method’s combination of carefully curated physical, mental, and emotional preparation techniques is an extremely effective and proven program for enhancing quality of pregnancy and birthing experiences. Bobby now trains Shakti Yoga Method teachers worldwide to help women and parents everywhere prepare for beautiful, comfortable, and yes, even enjoyable, birthing. Bobby draws on more than 15 years of experience teaching prenatal yoga, providing birth doula services, and instructing childbirth education programs. She uses educational topics, and visualizations to deepen the impact of yoga postures and breath practices. This multi-faceted program was developed as she observed what skills, and birth preparation techniques were most effective in helping her birth doula clients to intuitively and joyfully birth their babies. Meet other birthing women and parentes, share your own experiences, and go home to the most deep and delicious sleep with baby.
