Fertility yoga and a woman’s moon cycle

Fertility yoga and a woman’s moon cycle

We know from ancient cultures, that a woman’s cycle is intimately linked with the moon.   Our modern culture with its preoccupation with birth control devices and its emphasis on consumerism has tampered with the natural ebb and flow of a woman’s cycle. 

In our Private fertility session with Suzanne we link your yoga practices to the moon cycle.  When you understand the moon cycle rhythms and take the time to rest and replenish once a month, you will be recharging your creative potential and conserving your feminine powers.

Reflections of a Midwife

Reflections of a Midwife

I initially attended yogababy active birth classes during my first pregnancy.  Whilst my partner and I were the first of our family and friends to have a baby, I was a graduate midwife who felt like I knew a lot about birth and the early days of parenthood.  Then I attended yogababy classes.  I felt like I had not learnt anything about birth!  Suzanne guided us through a yoga practice that included explorations into pelvic awareness, the stages of labour, the fourth trimester, self care and massage.

When a Yogababy 'baby' turns Pro!

When a Yogababy 'baby' turns Pro!

Pacha Light was one of yogababy's first babies.  In early 2000 when I was studying Childbirth Education & Prenatal Yoga with Jane Campbell-Kaye in Brisbane, I travelled to South America to help my bestfriend, Anja Light,  bring Pacha into the world - at her home in the mountains of Ecuador. I taught  her yoga techniques to stay peaceful and relaxed during labour.
