For women in their second trimester of pregnancy and beyond, an eight-week pregnancy yoga course will be offered as of January 10, in Nicosia.
Run by Emma Michael, the yoga course will teach techniques and exercises that will assist expecting mothers during the pregnancy and labour. Some of these will be specific techniques to ease tensions from pregnancy, breathing techniques for contractions, labour and birth, movements and exercises to be used to ease pain and discomfort, techniques that can be used to assist the optimal foetal position of the baby for a natural birth and relaxation techniques.
The course uses Birthlight pregnancy yoga as its basis. Birthlight is an internationally acclaimed pregnancy and Well Woman Yoga organisation that strives to enable women to give birth with minimal intervention.
Michael has been practicing yoga for over 18 years, and is also a qualified Birthlight Perinatal teacher. She has four Teacher Training qualifications, a diploma in Shiatsu and a degree in Psychology. She is passionate about educating women in techniques that empower autonomy and confidence in birth.
