Our special couples prenatal yoga workshop focuses on providing couples the opportunity to enhance awareness and confidence in pregnancy, labour and birth. Through discussion, gentle postures, meditation and massage, couples are able to cultivate greater relaxation, better understanding and increase the enjoyment of childbearing. These workshops are on frequently at Surya Yoga.
