Reclaiming the Sacred in Birth

Creativity and wellbeing are our birthright. Our conditioning may have lead us to mistrust our bodies and to look outside for answers. The medicalization of birth still influences how we experience pregnancy and labor today. Yet this blessed womb activation is such a significant initiation in a woman’s life.

Pregnancy is a process that invites you to surrender to the unseen force behind all life. The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life. Prenatal yoga and birth support are powerful tools to empower and support pregnant women throughout their pregnancies, labor and beyond.
