YOGA & AYURVEDA FOR PREGNANCY
Nature creates within you an entire human in just forty weeks. Throughout pregnancy your body is your unborn baby’s universe. You are the rivers, sunlight, earth and sky for this being growing within you. Your baby’s body, mind, and soul are intimately intertwined with your own. Together you express the creative flow of life.
In each moment, your unborn baby is immersed in the sounds and vibrations of your breath and your heartbeat. Your baby feels your emotions. Whenever you move, laugh, cry or rest your baby responds. The potential for your baby’s life is encoded in their cells, while the environment of your body can either nurture or disturb this growth. Accept this responsibility with joy, for each healthy choice you make on behalf of your baby nourishes you as well!
“Pregnancy is not just something that is happening to you; it is a miraculous unfolding that you are co-creating.”
– Deepak Chopra

Meet Your Teacher
Hello, my name is Kyla.
Originally from Portland Oregon,
I followed my heart and moved across the world to Amsterdam 7 years ago.
I am a mother myself and I have a passion for supporting other mothers throughout their journey, holding the deepest belief that when a mother is properly supported, she will thrive, creating a ripple effect within her family and her community for years to come. During my own pregnancy I realized how incredibly profound doing yoga during this time could be. My yoga practice gave me strength to prepare for birth as well as softness so I could open and surrender, but most importantly it gave me trust that my breath and my body would enable me to meet with an open heart whatever birth experience I encountered. As a pregnancy yoga teacher my mission is to support you as you connect to this trust, find your inner strength and step into your power as a mother.
What I loved most about Kyla's course is how she really encouraged and increased the beautiful bond between the mother and her unborn child. In both the meditations and the yoga classes, I would really cherish the reminder to embrace this connection and celebrate the two hearts from within me; my own, and that of my growing unborn child. I found the meditations short and a powerful way of grounding and reconnecting with myself, my babe, and my inner wisdom. The yoga was wonderful at awakening my spine and body, moving it through the various planes of motions that our body's often lack in our day to day living. I always felt so much better post meditation and/or yoga lesson. Highly recommend to all pregnancy mama's.
The six week pregnancy yoga course was a very interesting experience and different than other online pregnancy yoga classes I took. Kyla really took the time to prepare the content in detail and as she went through the pregnancy journey herself she knew what is important during that time. I especially liked the description of every week's practice and useful information about pregnancy and delivery: the extensive list of precautions before staring exercises, tips on how to naturally deal with common pregnancy inconveniences and various positions that can help with pain during labor. From more practical side, I liked the voice guidance along the whole practice that helped me to focus on getting into the right position without the need to look at the screen too often. I did not get distracted and could easily follow the guidance of what to do next, which was very helpful for me. This is an in depth pregnancy yoga course that I can surely recommend!
