WIN: Partner Yoga for Pregnancy DVD
BrightonMums.com & Unity Partner Yoga are offering the chance to win a copy of Partner Yoga for Pregnancy DVD. Created and directed by Sevanti, Unity’s yoga practitioner, the DVD provides techniques for relaxation during pregnancy and birth. Practice in the comfort of your own home at a time that suits you!
Yoga is the perfect pregnancy partner, helping you connect with your baby and learn to relax through the strain it can put on your body. Learning to control your breathing and understand your body can also help during labour. Unity run Yoga and Pregnancy workshops from their Lewes Road studios. They are designed to help you find deep peace and connection during pregnancy plus understand techniques to help you through labour. Each workshop includes a talk from a doula. Although having a DVD means you have the flexibility to practice, being a part of a class with your partner can also build a social network which will last through till after your baby is born. Social networks are proven to increase confidence in new mums and decrease the chance of developing post-natal depression.
Unity Partner Yoga also run parent and child and adult yoga. The sessions are run from their Lewes Road studios, where they have created a calming environment to practice near to city centre and main public transport routes. Check their website for class times.
Weekly classes include:
Parent & Child Yoga -Wednesdays 9.30-11am, £36 for 6 classes
Unity Yoga Adult Class – Thursdays 8.15-10.15pm, £60 for 6 classes
No previous yoga experience is required for the Yoga & Partner workshops, if you have any questions just drop them a line. They also organise family friendly retreats and are currently offering a 10% discount on their next planned event in August, 2012.
To enter the competition simply leave a comment below, stating how you think yoga will benefit you during pregnancy and labour. Closing date, 31st January, 2012, midnight. UK entries only. No cash alternative. Winners will be drawn by 29th February, 2012.
