Birthlight Pregnancy Yoga in English
The Birthlight approach to Prenatal Yoga is adapted to directly benefit pregnant persons and babies during the months of pregnancy, and in the birthing process itself.
The Birthlight method is developed by Françoise
Freedman, medical anthropologist and founder of the Birthlight Trust UK, takes into account the
person as a whole. The techniques and practices encourage a release in the
body, as well as on psychological and emotional levels, so that anything that
needs to surface can do so in a caring and supportive environment. Through the
practice, we aim to counter-balance the daily stress factors in our busy
lives by slowing down, promoting connection with the baby, and finding
graceful movement and ease of breath.
ABOUT YOUR TEACHER
Barbara Ekelund was introduced to yoga at the age of 6, joining her mother on the mat. As an adult, she re-discovered yoga and decided to become a teacher herself. In 2008 she completed a 2-year teacher training focussing on Hatha Yoga (Sivananda tradition) followed by specialised trainings in birthlight baby yoga, toddler yoga, pre- and postnatal yoga. Since then she has been teaching classes and workshops in Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Sri Lanka, Poland and Cyprus.
Since 2013, Barbara has organised many birthlight training courses in Germany and is passionate about spreading the valuable tools of adapted yoga practices for pregnancy, motherhood and babyhood.
"My biggest fear before our child was born was being isolated and lonely in motherhood. To go from my rich social calendar to the empty apartment alone not knowing what the days would be like. This is why I sought after going to mama baby yoga very early - Karla was 5 weeks old when we joined our first course. Infinite has since become a place where my child and I can meet, as the person I was before she came and the person I am since she is with us. It has become the safe space in which to discover who I want to be as a mother, an oasis away from all the musts, the shoulds and all those stressful even if well intended advice. Here we both feel at ease in body and soul and get the energi we need to discover the world together. I am full of gratitude for this community!"
