Pregnancy Yoga is a beautiful way to connect with your baby and prepare your body for both birth and becoming a mother. Katie has been teaching pregnancy yoga in Melbourne since 2000 and offered a unique program of breath and body movement and strengthening to help facilitate the birth of many babies from 2000 to 2017 in Melbourne
Katie believes that not only should a woman prepare her body for the birth but also her mind and emotions for becoming a mother.
Infant research has shown There are many profound benefits to practicing pregnancy yoga. Studies have consistently found:
Prenatal yoga provided significant benefits, and no adverse effects were reported. Significant findings from the randomized studies included an increase in infant birth weight, lower incidence of pregnancy complications, shorter duration of labor, and less pain among yoga practitioners. Significant findings from the non-randomized and qualitative studies included decrease in pain, improved quality of sleep, increased maternal confidence, and improved interpersonal relationships among pregnant women who practiced yoga.
