Yoga For Labor Training

“Birthing a child also births an aspect of ourselves.
This is a journey of Initiation unlike any other.” 
– Kristen Eykel MHt.
Look, I LOVE pregnancy yoga and anyone who teaches yoga at all gets a gold star from me because it is a serious blessing to our planet.
But let’s face it, Pregnancy and Labor are specific conditions in any woman’s life – just as specific as preparing for a marathon. I mean really, would you want your average school gym coach to train you for the Boston Marathon? Or would you search out the best running coach you could find for your best outcomes?

Prenatal Caregivers, Yoga Teachers, Doulas & Women everywhere just want to learn more about Pregnancy and Labor than is readily available.

Yoga for Labor ™ is not simply a modification of Asana, it is a complete body, mind, spiritual development practice that creates the circumstances for best labor & delivery outcomes for both mother and baby.

What is Yoga for Labor ™ and why does it matter?

Yoga for Labor is my own trademarked synthesis of Hatha and Kundalini asana, (or postures) specifically designed to support the mother’s changing body in pregnancy and to prepare you for the work of labor.

Most pregnancy yoga classes are either too strenuous for the average woman or are downright counter-productive for labor. Just because you can do a posture, doesn’t mean you should do that posture! Many teachers of pregnancy yoga have either never been pregnant, or have had challenges in labor as a result of the very work that they have spent years cultivating.

The time of pregnancy is one of the most rapid periods of personal transformation in your life.

Not simply because you are having a child or two, but because your concepts of yourself as a woman, mother, wife, friend, daughter, confidant and creator are evolving as well. More women choose to begin a yoga practice during pregnancy over any other time. The practice of Yoga during pregnancy has long been established as a safe and effective mechanism for mental, emotional and physical stability by doctors, midwives and other maternal healthcare practitioners worldwide. I take this work even further into my teachings of Yoga for Labor.

My own experience with this power during pregnancy led to 2 incredible home births that were unlike anything I had ever heard of before. This sparked a curiosity and drive within me to not only learn more but to apply what I had learned to teach others.

Look, I am not magic, and if I could have labors that were off the charts, amazingly unheard of, then you totally can too!
Because I am so deeply committed to mothers worldwide understanding themselves & her power naturally within, these live & online trainings create new wisdom – incorporating the power of Transformational Birth with Yoga for Labor ™.
