Establishment of yoga classes for pregnant women at the Hout Bay Main Road Clinic

Giving the best possible start to babies and new parents.

Pregnant women are often victims of domestic violence. They may also experience violence in social conditions or as a result of their working conditions and stress.

In order to give the best possible start to babies and new parents, we promote a smooth and gentle pregnancy with Dr De Gasquet’s method to bring comfort to pregnant women. The ladies learn efficient tricks to improve comfort, especially while some are still working long hours. This technique provides the best tools for a pleasant, peaceful and efficient preparation to give birth in the union of the body and the spirit.

During these classes, women learn breathing techniques, postures and adaptations, tips on how to modify postures, relaxation and mindfulness meditation.

This technique is also known to prevent injury to the back, perineum and abdominals and includes many alternatives which are helpful for people living in a township or those without access to a wellness centre.
