These weekly, women only classes use gentle yoga based activities and stretches to prepare women for birth. Each session starts with a 30-45 minute discussion, question and answer or teaching session on prenatal or postnatal topics, whatever the group is wanting to discuss. The physical part of the classes focus on breathing techniques, positions for labour and relaxations as well as education. You have an enjoyable and relaxing time, whilst improving your physical and emotional wellbeing and helping ready you for a positive birth experience. The classes are run on an active birth format, with different topics running throughout the session each week, such as breastfeeding, good positions for a straightforward birth or keeping calm.
The postures and stretches are very gentle and are specially designed so that you can attend throughout your pregnancy.
For all mothers this is a chance for a peaceful, relaxing time each week, concentrating on yourself and your new baby and your wishes for birth and early parenting days. Whether
you are a first time mum, or have children already, this can be a wonderful opportunity to meet other mothers and ask questions, hear real life stories and learn practical tips from other
Class size is limited to 12 women, so please contact me to register for a place. There may be a short wait before a place becomes available.
Each session costs 30 CHF or you can buy a 6 class pass for 165 CHF, valid for your entire pregnancy (so you do not have to come to six sessions in a row)
You need only wear comfortable clothing and bring a pillow, blanket, and if you have one, a yoga mat.
The classes are held at the Kindermusik Studio, Leimgrubenweg 9, 4053 Basel
