Join Prenatal Yoga Specialist Julia Piazza for Birth Wisdom Prenatal Yoga & Childbirth Preparation Classes.
“My heart has led me to develop a uniquely personal yoga flow and visualization series that prepares mothers physically, mentally and spiritually for pregnancy, child birth and motherhood”.
Birth Wisdom Yoga combines ‘doula wisdom,’ nurturing yoga flows, and the proper modifications and alignment necessary to practice yoga safely while pregnant. Special emphasis on the pelvic floor, how to avoid creating a diastasis-recti and yoga positions to create space in the pelvis for labor and childbirth included. My students feel safe, confident, grounded, and connected. This results in women who are inspired to ‘own their birth experiences.’
All Birth Wisdom Prenatal Yoga Classes are led by Certified Birth Wisdom Yoga Teachers trained by Julia Piazza in birth breathing, softening for labor, yoga positions to create space in the pelvis for mom and baby, owning your birth, avoiding creating a Diastasis- Recti when practicing yoga and pelvic floor yoga remedies to release and support the pelvic floor during pregnancy. If and when a Birth Wisdom Certified Teacher is not available to lead a class, class will be canceled.
Bio for Julia
Empowering women and their partners throughout the birth process is my most sacred work. As a volunteer doula for Sutter Davis Hospital, I witnessed the transformative power of pregnancy and birth that gave women the clarity and strength to guide, nurture and care for their families. After completing my Birth Doula Certification through DONA in 2004, I had an inspired realization that there is wisdom from the pregnancy and delivery process that relate to both genders and all stages of life.
As I witnessed the healing power of birth for women, I simultaneously studied and discovered the physical and spiritual healing of yoga. For this reason, I completed a 200-hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training and an 85-hour Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training registered with Yoga Alliance. I continue to study and learn about everything related to pelvic floor health during pregnancy & the postpartum healing period. A special area of research and study of mine, is also how to use yoga poses to create space in the pelvis for mom and baby in childbirth.
