This unique workshop brings together two of Canberra’s most experienced Pre and Post Natal Yoga teachers who are excited to share their combined knowledge and commitment to empowering pregnant women and their partners.  

This is a practically oriented workshop which addresses the mind/body connection and its role in having a positive birth experience, however your birth unfolds.

During the day your partner will learn how to:


  • create a calm, supportive and loving atmosphere

  • support you in a variety of Active Birth positions
