LATE PREGNANCY YOGA NURTURE WORKSHOP (34 weeks and beyond)
Whether this is your first baby or your fourth, the final stages of pregnancy can be a unique experience loaded with excitement, anticipation and fear. How do you maintain equilibrium and trust in your body while interested family and friends beg the question ‘when are you due?’. Can you find any comfort in the ‘not-knowing’ when baby will make their grand entrance into your world. Can you ‘let go’ of preconceptions of how your birth will be while at the same time making clear plans and setting intentions? So much to think of! During these last few weeks your body starts to lead the way as it prepares for the most miraculous of experiences. Come and join other mothers in the same phase: move, breathe, cry, laugh and rest.
