Labor Support for Partners
A four-hour workshop dedicated to introducing, understanding and practicing comfort measures for pregnancy and childbirth. Couples will learn a wide variety of pain relief and relaxation techniques including massage, breathing, positioning, rebozo, affirmations and connection during labor. The importance of introducing comfort measures prenatally, as well as how and when to use various techniques will be discussed. This workshop is not a substitute for a Childbirth Ed Class, but an additional compliment for anyone attempting an unmedicated birth as it goes above and beyond the basic techniques and exercises taught in any childbirth education class.
Over 10 years ago, Emily came to yoga in pursuit of exploration. Although she did not really even know what that meant at the time, 5 years later she found herself leaving her high-powered corporate real estate career for a yoga teacher training. During that transition, she took an opportunity to do a work/study program with Mas Vidal of Dancing Shiva Yoga & Ayurveda while simultaneously entering into a YogaWorks Teacher Training program (where she would meet her future mentor, Mela Gaskins Butcher of The Center for Ayurveda). In less than a year after leaving her old life, Emily had completed over 400 hours of yoga training, more than half in Ayurvedic Lifestyle & Yoga, and had embarked on a 5-year Ayurveda apprenticeship which would lead to her new status as an Ayurvedic Practitioner. Ayurveda had changed her life. Now, she works as a Doula, private Yoga Teacher and Ayurvedic Practitioner in one, seeing clients for various lifestyle needs and support. She offers Ayurvedic massage for all ages, including infants. And she specializes in working with parents and families through pregnancy and postpartum as a doula and pre/post natal yoga instructor. Emily works to live and to teach living in harmony with nature and soul while nurturing joyous life.
