we can not think our way through labor, prenatal yoga is a perfect
way to drop beneath the thinking mind and into the body/mind to
prepare for birth. Whole Birth Yoga teaches us to listen deeply
to and trust in our body's innate birthing wisdom. Through the
gentle work of yoga and Detox Thailand we awaken the body-mind and become familiar
with it's language and allow the thinking-mind to quiet on it's
own. Yoga poses

and body awareness, learning pain management, prenatal bonding,
deep relaxation and working with one's edges.

I think it was just about a year ago that I started coming to your
prenatal yoga class on Tuesday nights. It was difficult to coordinate
my schedule so I could be there, but I was always so happy to be
able to spend just a couple hours a week on just me and the baby
growing inside me. Your yoga class helped me to grow and open up
to a whole new world. Before your class I thought the birthing process
went something like ...get a doctor, get pregnant, be fat and miserable,
go into labor, go to the hospital, get an epidural, have a baby.
Because of the class, my experience was wonderful, beautiful and
natural. I feel strong and empowered. I gained the confidence to
have my baby differently than my grandmother, mother and sister.
Giving birth was hard work but I did it!"
