Prenatal yoga classes in Brussels with Layakari

Layakari

For pregnant yoginis, your pregnancy is a great and unique moment to reconnect with your body and your intuition, and yoga can help you with that. Prenatal yoga classes with my colleague and friend Layakari are an adaptation of the basic Sivananda class for pregnancy special needs. In this way the future mum can benefit of the physical aspect of yoga, as well as preparing breath and mind for labor. In the classes you will learn the following:

  • Connecting with deep resources of strength and energy, with the baby and the pregnancy
  • Postural alignmentreleasing stress, tension and fatigue
    Control of the breath and breathing techniques
  • Stretching and strengthening
  • Preparing for labor
  • Relaxation

Practical info

Yin Yoga foundations (30 hrs) certification

In April 2016 I’ve spent 2 weekends (and 2 Friday afternoons) with a bunch of enthusiastic yogins in Brussels studying anatomy and yin yoga postures with Joe Barnett.

20160410_184355Not only did we have a lot of fun while doing it, we’ve learned so much in little time. Joe is a very experienced and fun teacher who made the sometimes complex human body a very interesting topic to say the least. He taught us about the important differences that exist in each and everyone and that every human body is unique and to respect this uniqueness. The TTC was incredibly complimentary to the yin yoga TTC I’ve taken with Sarah Powers in 2014.

yinAll in all, I’m very grateful to have been able to study with Joe and the other yogins and look forward to share this teachings (and his teacher Paul Grilley’s teaching) with my students.

More information about my yin yoga teachers:
