A four session series where you delve deep into embodying movement and breath as you prepare yourself for birth. In childbirth preparation classes, couples are taught many ways to cope in labor - moving and breathing are the classics. But to really take the time to embody these timeless tools is a way to deeply prepare. In the first meeting you will be exploring the dance of labor: the many different positions you can try, what your body likes best, what imagery comes up for you while practicing now and later can be used in birth itself. We will have a full meeting just on breath: first of all, just to explore your breath, then how to optimally use your breath to relax and cope. How breath affects us and what kind of breathing works best in the different stages of labor. Next there is a meeting on how to tap into the innate wisdom of the body through the Paula Method (sphincter exercise). This is a well of body knowledge and to explore it is a gift for life. We can use so many different sphincters in our body in order to facilitate the mechanism of self healing and self regulation that the body innately knows. The uterus and pelvic floor are sphincter muscles and we can tune into this mechanism to help us in birth. The last session allows time to delve into the world of deep relaxation, mindfulness, imagery and how to integrate all these wonderful tools together into a full embodied experience. For pregnant women only.
Four meetings of 75 minutes each. 420nis.
