About this Event

Pregnancy. It’s a miraculous process of self-discovery and learning. It’s a time of physical, emotional and spiritual transformation. And it’s a time when the practice of yoga matters deeply as it affects the life of the pregnant woman and her unborn child. This comprehensive course provides an overview of yoga and meditation practice throughout the pregnancy, birth and post-natal stages.

Course Objectives

• To learn about the relationship between the practice of yoga and women’s life cycles.

• To understand the medical and cultural context, both past and present, of pregnancy and birthing.

• To understand the physical and emotional changes that occurs for women and their

babies at different stages of development, pre and post natal.

• To understand how to teach healthy pregnant women appropriate yoga practices for the stage of their pregnancy.

• To understand the common complaints, contraindications and conditions during

pregnancy and how to adapt yoga practice to these in order to teach safely.

• To facilitate an understanding of how the teaching of pregnancy yoga can enable

women to have a conscious and active birth and improve their birth experience and

outcomes, so that teachers may then empower their students to birth consciously.

• To learn and implement the theory of Optimal Foetal Positioning as it applies to yoga asana in their yoga classes.

• To enable teachers to deliver interesting, informative and fun classes for women during pregnancy, for birth and beyond.

SAMANTHA BRIATICO

Mindful Birth Educator, Doula, Brithing in New Earth - Founder, Mentor

Originally from the United States, I left the USA in 2004 with a spirit of adventure and eventually settling in Perth, Australia. 11 years ago, I embarked on my journey to become a Yoga teacher and deepened my yogic studies delving into asana, pranayama and meditation. I furthered my journey as a yoga and meditation teacher, studying and learning with many teachers around the world. Over the years, I also studied other integrated movement practices, like conscious dance. As I was on my journey to become a yoga teacher, 11 years ago, I experienced a stillbirth at 41 weeks. Losing Zara led me to a passion of working with women in the pre and post natal period. I truly feel pregnancy, birth and beyond is a sacred, miraculous time to be honoured and cherished. I teach pre and post natal yoga, active birth and now am a trained doula. I also facilitate Mindful Birth trainings in Australia and Asia and continue to learn innovative approaches to support women throughout the cycles of life. I truly believe, my journey of loss has led me to this place of passion and purpose. I feel honoured be able to share with women on their journeys and I do hope my experience can be a guiding light for women on their healing journeys. I am beyond excited to be sharing the Birthing in New Earth Gathering. More details here: https://www.zaraandco.com https://www.samanthabriatico.com

LAUREN GARRET

Mindful Birth - Educator, Mentor

Lauren found the practice of yoga as a sanctuary from the demands of the corporate profession and found that the practice supported and enabled her to navigate life, explore her truth and discover her inner potential.

Lauren teaches Pre and Post-natal yoga, yin and restorative practices, most recently at MAMA (Midwives and Mamas Australia) in Kensington. Over the past few years, due to family work commitments, Lauren has lived away from her family, recently in Shanghai where she gave birth to her daughter, and whilst Melbourne has been ‘home’, she currently resides in Ballarat.

Possessing a true passion for community, Lauren created a yoga and pregnancy support group for women birthing away from their home country in Shanghai. Her classes focus on building trust, connection and awareness within, and with baby, as both an anchor and inner strength that empowers, whilst nurtures, women in their transition of motherhood and change.

Having completed foundational training with Patrick Creelman, Pure Yoga Asia, Mindful Mindful Birth with Michelle Papa and Dr. Jean Byrne, Yin Yoga & Mindfulness with Sarah Owen and most recently she has commenced studies on the pathway to a Yoga Therapist.

A Wisdom Yoga Institute course convenor and mentor for Melbourne, Lauren has recently been working closely with yoga teacher trainees as they find and share their light in foundational yoga studies.

Whilst juggling yoga and a corporate career in HR, you will most likely find Lauren having an adventure with her two daughters; sipping on lattes and baby chinos or escaping in her latest read.
