Women are blessed with the divine duty of maternity. Pregnancy is a very special season in the life of a woman.  Tremendous changes can happen within physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  In India Yoga has been practiced for centuries to support the mother-to-be, new mothers and babies to feel nurtured, empowered and balanced.

Dr Swapna is an Ayurvedic Doctor and Yoga teacher from India and has been teaching Holistic Ayurvedic Pregnancy yoga for over many years. She is a mother of two and practiced Ayurveda pregnancy yoga with her both pregnancies.

Dr Swapna is specialized in

  • Ayurvedic holistic pregnancy & child care programs
  • Postnatal yoga
  • Pregnancy yoga
  • Pregnancy & Postnatal  Massages
  • Baby massages

Ayurvedic teachings promote a proper attitude of worship towards all pregnant women. They are fulfilling the very important full time role of bringing new life into the world.  Their experiences in pregnancy directly feed into the sensory & mental organs of the developing child. So the more beautiful, loving, and uplifting the mother’s experience, the healthier the child will tend to perceive and think about the world throughout his or her life.

So it’s essential you find an experienced teacher who gently guides you through the yoga
