Yoga for Labor & Birth:

A Workshop for Partners

Sunday, November 17, 2:30-5:30pm

with Beth Donnelly Cabán

In this workshop, you will learn a variety of labor coping strategies, and partners gain practical physical and emotional labor support skills. We will explore positions, movement and rhythms that influence fetal position, encourage progress, and ease pain in labor. We will bring attention to the breath and explore ways that you might use it to steady and calm the mind, induce relaxation, and energize the body. We will work with touch – massage, counter pressure, acupressure points - as means to support comfort, facilitate progress, and relieve pain. When the mind is free of tension and fear, the body is able to give birth with greater ease. We will practice relaxation techniques and visualizations for labor and birth and examine the universal needs of laboring women. Other topics we will discuss include the use of heat and/or cold for comfort, eating and drinking as essential labor support, and the benefits of water. This workshop includes practices to do at home and a bibliography.

All levels welcome.

About Ellen:

Ellen found her home in yoga at thirteen and has been a dedicated practitioner ever since. As someone with a lifelong chronic illness, finding a physical and spiritual practice which unveiled her intrinsic, capable, already-sufficient wholeness has inspired Ellen to invite others to discover their own innate potential for meaningful self-expression. She began teaching yoga to teens and adults of all ages in 2009. After completing a 200-hour yoga teacher training here at Yoga Sanctuary (studying primarily with Sara Rose, Amy Reed, and Sarah Faircloth), Ellen discovered a particular love for teaching prenatal yoga inspired largely by Tara Starling’s prenatal classes. Ellen brings her experience as a professional theatre artist, a youth educator, and a mom of two awesome kids to her yoga teaching. All of Ellen’s classes are rich with practical philosophy, down-to-earth humor, playfulness, and a passion for both alignment and the therapeutic applications of yoga practice.
