Pregnancy – Adjusting to the Bump

I love working with pregnant women. During pregnancy, a woman’s body is changing rapidly. It’s important to develop good habits early on to help avoid back pain.

I help women to strengthen their back and to find balance and ease, both physically and emotionally. We do a lot of work with bending to learn how to support the back properly both during pregnancy and when the baby arrives. I also have ways to show how not to arch the back which is a common posture during pregnancy.

We look at preparing for labour and getting ready for when the baby comes, being back and neck aware. One thing I focus on is the quality of touch so that the touch is supportive and not adding to tension.

It’s best to start as early as possibly – ideally from 3 months.

Adjusting to the Baby

There’s so much to adjust to when a new baby comes into the world, that mums (and dads/partners) can forget to think about their own bodies.  And this can cause havoc with their backs.

It can also be quite stressful and emotional.

In 5 week workshop, we can look at a range of practical activities such as:

  • bending and avoiding back ache: over the pram, cot, bath, changing mat
  • breastfeeding without straining your back and neck
  • sitting comfortably when playing with the kids on the floor
  • carrying your baby without arching the back
  • using baby car seats without damaging your back
  • how to find calm and reduce anxiety.

Included is a ‘Guided Talk-Through’ audio and a weekly text message to enhance your learning curve. You’ll leave with a self-care skill you then can use anytime and anywhere.

Iyengar Yoga, named after and developed by B. K. S. Iyengar, is a form of Hatha Yoga that has an emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The development of strength, mobility and stability is gained through the asanas. Iyengar Yoga focuses on the structural alignment of the physical body through the development of asanas. Through the practice of a system of asanas, it aims to unite the body, mind and spirit for health and well-being. This discipline is considered a powerful tool to relieve the stresses of modern-day life which in turn can help promote total physical and spiritual well-being.

I like to link my yoga teaching to everyday life: to the cycles of our lives and of nature, so we become more in tune with ourselves and the world around us. I generally take a theme for the term, and develop it as the weeks go by, so there is a sense of continuity and growth through the term. I also draw on words and ideas from yoga teachings to enrich our felt experience in the practice.

Gently, steadily explore and develop your body’s strength, your flexibility and sense of balance.

Become breath aware.

Explore the body – breath connection.

Learn to relax and let go.

Begin from where you are now.

All my life I enjoyed teaching, so it is not surprising that I wanted to share my discovery of yoga’s power to relax and revitalise.

I trained as a Hatha yoga teacher with the Irish Yoga Association. Their training is over a 4 year period to ensure a properly assimilated experience of yoga’s essential elements.
