Prenatal Partners Yoga & Birth Companion Workshop with Nancy Larson Sun, Oct 21, 2018 at 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Come together to this workshop where you will learn more than just yoga poses to share with your partner.

This class will address issues such as maximizing optimal fetal positioning, back labor, massage and acupressure and relaxation techniques. We will practice positions on a “birth ball” so if you have one, please bring one to class. (These are also known as exercise balls, physical therapy balls, etc.)

Saturday Workshop
This afternoon is dedicated to experiencing and understanding revolved standing poses. We'll talk about the benefits of twists, practice a range of preparations, and explore key concepts like: using the breath to deepen the poses; the work of the external obliques; and working safely with the sacrum. Not appropriate for beginners.

Sunday Workshop
Spirals are a unique and naturally forming structure in nature. Even our DNA is built upon protein chain that spirals. Twisting poses relieve tension in the spine and allows space to occur between spinal vertebrae. During this workshop we will "evolve and revolve" as we delve deeply into the magic and healing power of twists and spirals in many yoga poses including revolved triangle, half-lord of the fishes pose and others.
