What others are saying about Couples Yoga for Birth Preparation:
“We really enjoyed Saturday’s class Sandi, thank you for creating such a unique bonding experience! Nate and I talked and this is what we think: Most helpful was the optional birthing positions and the stretching. We really liked stretching together and the meditation where we looked into each other’s eyes. We never take time for one another like that so it was great. Nate almost started crying, which in turn made me almost cry—it was great.”
“One of my favorite highlights of pregnancy!”
“I didn’t think my husband would want to do this together because he is not a big fan of yoga. I set up my mat and was watching your class on my iPad. Jake came in and after a few minutes of watching over my shoulder asked, “Can I do this with you?”
