Prenatal Childbirth Preparation Workshop

Winter 2019 class proposed dates: TBA late February 2019 or March 2019

Please contact me with your preference for a single weekend (two long days), or two Sundays, or a Wed evening and a full day Sunday or spread over 3 weekly evenings.

Where: TBD depends on class size.

Cost: $120 per birth team ($100 if the class size is very small and we have it in my home.)

Evidence-based learning with Lamaze Certified Instructor, Shannon Cowan.

Please call or email to register and indicate availability for the proposed times. 6534867 or shannoncowanyoga(at)gmail(dot)com.

As a result of your participation in this workshop, you will have gained the knowledge and skill to:

  • recognize and respond proactively to the stages of labour
  • understand anatomy of labour and birth and potential medical interventions
  • promote healthy birth outcomes through knowledge, practice and understanding
  • cope with the pain of labour (e.g. positions, comfort skill practice)
  • encourage and support verbally, physically and emotionally under a variety of labour and birth situations (for partners)
  • recognize newborn healthy appearance and cues, apply basic infant care strategies
  • make informed decisions, and communicate your needs and questions in medical environments
  • understand and apply a ‘whole person’ mental-emotional preparedness approach to pregnancy, birth and family life
  • understand and use evidence-based physical, physiological, and nutritional tools for the childbearing year

Who should take this workshop?

This is recommended for first time parents, for those who have not attended any births before, and for those who had a traumatic previous birth experience, and persons who may benefit from guidance and practice to be comfortable with their role in supporting a birthing person during their childbearing year.

Prenatal Preparation Private Class Option – $150.00 

Taught privately in my studio, or your home  – this is a 3 to 4 hour custom-tailored class suited exactly to your needs; may include  yoga and partner labour support practice. This version does not quite follow the 12-hour Lamaze-approved course guidelines, but is a pared down version focussing on stages of labour, comfort measures, informed decision-making, and labour support skills.

Please call to express interest in workshop dates, or to arrange a private session.

Thank you.


Private Prenatal Yoga – 

Private yoga classes are custom-designed session to give you Kundalini Yoga tools to address issues in your mind, body, spirit and life. I have a full schedule with full time work and teaching yoga and childbirth classes.

$90.00 – 2hr session, includes follow-up phone and email support.


Parent and Child Yoga – I am too full to offer this class at the moment!

I see there is a family yoga class at Salt Spring Island Wellness Centre on Sundays at 2pm. You have to sign up using Mindbody for this class – there is a waitlist.

    Hi there Shannon!

    My husband and I have recently moved to Salt Spring and are pregnant with our first child! We are interested in your prenatal/prenatal yoga classes that will be coming up soon! Could we get on a mailing list or be informed in someway, when you have determined the dates and details?

    Thank you so much for your time!

    Hi Shannon! I’m very interested to know if you would be interested in a post-natal yoga class with babes in tow, if I could get together a small group?
