A day long retreat for pregnant Mama’s to be nurtured and nourished.
Enjoy gentle prenatal yoga and relaxation and an absolutely delicious, nutritionally rich lunch.
You’ll feel deeply relaxed, you’ll feel nurtured and nourished and you’ll feel connected with your beautiful baby.
During pregnancy, you and your baby function as one. When you contemplate that you are creating your own extra blood supply, making a placenta and growing your little babe in all of its intricate perfection, it is easy to link how your nutritional intake and your healthy body and mind are of the utmost importance. Your wellbeing at this time and your nutritional intake can not only provide the best start for your baby but can also affect your ability to have a great birth.
YES YES YES! GREAT BIRTH IS TOTALLY POSSIBLE!
Learn simple ways to support changing body and connect your growing baby.
Alongside a small group of other pregnant women, you will be lead though a gentle strengthening and relaxing prenatal yoga sequence that has been especially designed to align the spine and make room for your growing baby. Together we will also learn specific poses that bring relief to some common pregnancy complaints such as nausea, reflux, back and hip pain, sciatica and breathlessness.
Learn optimal nutrition that will support you and your baby during this special time.
Through the day, we will spend some time learning about the fundamentals of prenatal nutrition and explore simple and inspiring ways to add extra goodness and nutrient dense content to what you eat every day. There will be plenty of time to sample things (we remember being pregnant ladies ourselves!) and together we will also share a delicious, nutritionally rich organic lunch.
After lunch you will be guided through a beautiful pregnancy relaxation and learn calming breath techniques that you can practice now and take with you for the duration of your pregnancy, into birth and beyond.
It may be the first time you have practiced yoga.
It is not necessary to have previous yoga experience to attend this retreat. It may be the first time you have practiced yoga. While a degree of physical fitness is required, the yoga taught will be gentle and simple, pregnancy and beginner’s postures specific (with varying levels of complexity offered to more experienced yoga students).
We have prepared a beautiful little booklet for you of all of the yoga poses and breath techniques we will be covering together throughout the day. This booklet also contains nutritional information, recipes from our yummy lunch samples and extra resources to support you during this special time.
