MINDFUL PREGNANCY / GRAVIDYOGA
Welcome! Join us in the upcoming prenatal yoga (gravidyoga) course:
Fridays from 16:00 – 17:15 at N Yoga in Lund. Book via this link.
Or, join our digital program here.
Take time to connect to your body, baby and community of women. Each 75 minute session is uniquely themed, with each class having a specific focus that connects the movements, mindful relaxation and group discussion. After class a calming tea is served and a reflection task is shared to bring the relaxation and mindfulness home with you. The classes are a balance of stretches and movements (both gentle and dynamic) designed to reconnect and build strength in your postpartum body. Each course runs for 4 weeks, and classes are held in English.
Course Details: The course is created to offer a chance to build a community of mothers, share in the experience of being pregnant, and learn valuable tools to use during pregnancy and labor. After the first class, the intention is to bring the awareness back into your physical body, to cultivate a sense of power and complete relaxation – from the outside in. Create a deeper connection to your body and breath, to the present moment, and, most importantly, to your baby.
The course will go through physical yoga postures, mental techniques with meditation and mindfulness, and breath work to help support your body through the changes during pregnancy, labor, delivery and postpartum. The asana, or physical postures, help to build strength and stamina, improve circulation, regulate breathing, open energy channels and harmonize the triadic relationship and functioning of the body, mind and breath. As you stretch, you will learn to relax naturally, and begin to trust the innate wisdom within – making it easier to surrender into places that feel tight, or out of balance. For a mother-to-be, this surrender will prove invaluable from delivery day forward.
These classes can be taken during your entire pregnancy, but many women choose to start during their second trimester and continue practicing up to their due date. Each woman, and each pregnancy, is very different! It is important to listen to your body and what feels best for you. Whether your focus is on building strength and confidence, or relaxation and meditation, you can find the space to feel supported during each and every class.

This course is led by myself, Bethany Kokaia, a registered prenatal yoga and postnatal yoga teacher, EYRT 200 registered teacher, founder of Yoga Roots in Malmö, and most importantly a mother of two.
