Each labour and birth is unique and being prepared is half way
done. This course will give mom and dad confidence and security. You will learn how to stay active and positively involved during labour for a beautiful experience of the arrival of your baby.

To support the birthing process the pelvis needs to be opened to its maximum to allow the baby to pass through. Ease of movement and certain positions will facilitate this opening with the support of the partner. We will practice different birthing positions and learn how to use the breath effectively and for best results. The couple will be taught how to use sound to stimulate the labour and help to relax. Useful tips for the birthing partner are offered so he can be of natural assistance.

You will gain

Understanding of the baby’s birth journey through the pelvis and the psychosomatic mechanisms for releasing positive birth hormones

Ease of movement to make full use of gravity

Effective use of breath and sound

Relaxing through contractions and between contractions

Releasing birthing muscles and perineum to make way for the baby and stretch gently without fear

Birthing breathing. Creating a body memory for ‘exhale pushing’, or ‘birthing lightly’ without strain

Transforming fear into calm power in the transition to motherhood, using yoga resources to tap into the inner body wisdom accessible to all women


Group of 3 – 5 couples, 85€ per couple

For 2 couples, 105€ per couple

Private for 1 couple, 120€

We will do a physical practice and use the Yoga Wall as a tool to assist the release. Enjoy the feeling of space and openness in your lower back after these two hours and feel empowered to know how to release your back on your own.

With that understanding, we will continue the opening with powerful, simple and effective poses that will create freedom in your hips and the possibility to address emotional blockages deeply rooted in the pelvic area, in order to bring more beautiful feelings.

All healing happens in a peaceful state – a state of deep relaxation.

Join me for a workshop that will not only make you walk away taller but that also will affect your breathing and make your entire body feel more open.
Through the use of both breath and intention, you will be given tools to take the work to a deeper level than the physical, so that you can release what you’ve been holding on to on both a physical, mental and spiritual level making the difference in how you feel even greater.
Since gravity constantly pulls on our spines and compresses the discs, in this workshop we will counteract that by creating space and allowing circulation to flow between the vertebrae.

The series is done while hanging in traction, and therefore is not suitable for those who have high blood pressure, a seizure condition, a history of stroke, a heart condition, glaucoma, acid reflux or hiatal hernia. If you fall into any of those categories, or will be on your period or are pregnant, please avoid this class.

Price: 60 €

One of the areas of the body that most of us notice stiffness is the area of the neck, shoulders and upper back. Our current lifestyle, excessive sitting, posture and typing in computers has put a lot of burden in our shoulders, while the feeling of carrying more responsibility that we can handle makes also our upper body get into a defensive state.

In this workshop, you will learn practical physical tools to deal with everyday stiffness in this part of your body. Expect simple and effective movements that applied on a regular basis will transform tightness into more space, and the feeling of being burdened into empowerment. For this purpose we will use Purna Yoga Asana, Yoga Wall work, prop work plus simple techniques of Heartfull Meditation to do the necessary inner work for transformation.

All levels welcome!

Next one in August

15:00 – 18:00

In the world we are living in today, birth has become mystic and scary, over-medicalized and intervention-based. While it is the most natural experience a woman can have, she has lost touch with her inner guide. Mom learns how to relieve pain with nitrous oxide, pethidine or epidural, but she is not taught how to cope with the birth journey herself.

This workshop is for those moms who want to empower themselves to take the lead in their birth story. To build a connection to her body, to focus her mind and trust her heart. Gaining the ability to stay calm in the midst of emotional upheaval with the tools which reside in every one of us.

You learn simple meditation techniques based on Heartfull™ Meditation, you learn how to use your breath and the effect of sound. Relaxation during pregnancy is a key concept for a nurtured nervous system which will help you to stay in control during and after the birth.

The Birth partner preparation course is a way to include the father in the birthing process while this workshop is focused on the mother.
