Prenatal Pilates & Yoga
We developed our Prenatal Pilates & Yoga classes together with midwives with you and your well-being in mind. Through gentle exercises you will promote blood circulation and strengthen your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles. You will improve your posture, relieve symptoms of back pain and learn techniques to relax in your shoulder girdle. Breathing and relaxation exercises will support you in finding inner calm and balance.
We recommend a private introductory training as of the 16th week of pregnancy. For your introductory training or for private classes in Prenatal Pilates & Yoga please contact us via E-Mail.

Our Prenatal Yoga classes are open for all as of the 14th week of pregnancy. Our classes are non-competitive, joyful and inclusive, emphasizing rhythmic and graceful movement and ease of breath for all stages of pregnancy. We use adaptations of Hatha Yoga to strengthen and relax the physical body, the focus the mind and experience sensations as they arise. Inspired by Françoise Freedman and the Birthlight method, our emphasis lies in providing connection: within towards oneself and the baby, and without towards others sharing the same experience of matrescence, the developmental transition to motherhood. Come and be as you are in our sacred circle, learn practices and techniques to build trust in your body and your intuition, and gain confidence in your pregnancy, birth and into parenthood.
WORKSHOP: YOGADOULA BIRTH PREPARATION WITH GISELA COLLAZO
In this 3-hour workshop we will practice breathing and relaxation techniques, active birthing positions and comfort measures so the birthing person, partner and baby can have the best possible transition to family life together. My aim is to give you and your partner a toolbox of techniques you can use to navigate your unique birthing process.
