I encourage pregnant women to empower themselves. Giving birth to your baby naturally is entirely achievable. Everything you need is already there, however it is helpful to develop a deeper consciousness about your body and mind. This empowers and equips you to open yourself from the inside out. My experience is as a mother, teacher, therapist and doula. I will take you by the hand and support you on your journey. From the inside….. to the outside.
Independent, autonomous and unique
The exercises within the class are based in yoga but specifically focus on mental and physical training for labour. You will learn a wide range of positions, movements, breathing and vocal techniques which will keep you active during birth and focused in a calm and capable manner. This proactive role will connect you with your body, your baby and your partner, which will build your trust to be present in labour, allowing your body to do what it was built for.
My classes help you:
Patricia Vriens (1961) has a background as a movement therapist and yoga-martial arts teacher. She has more than 35 years of professional experience in assisting pregnant women and their partners. Her motto is: “Do you want to actively give birth or be delivered from suffering?” In other words: do you want to be in charge – as much as possible – and go into the delivery process on your own terms, or do you want to surrender your autonomy? By working with pregnant women on a weekly basis, Patricia guides them in the direction of a natural, conscious and safe delivery process.
