Location detail:

At the end of Rainbow road, slow down and look on your right at the house numbers. The third driveway is 116, and the number is on a tree cross section. After turning in the paved drive, the yoga studio is on the left in the large barn building with two garage doors on the front. Park angled in front of that building, and if you need, park along the main driveway tucked to the side as overflow. The entry is the last door on the right side of the building. Go upstairs to the studio. Mats and blankets provided for about ten people – you are welcome to bring your own also. Please bring a drink and wear layers. There is a composting toilet available in the little pumphouse right downhill from the barn.

Prenatal Childbirth Preparation Workshop

Winter 2019 class proposed dates:

Wed evening January 30th, and Sunday February 3rd for 6-7 hours.

(Or, if availability for the full weekend is better, we will meet Feb 2nd and 3rd: 5 hours each).

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 – $125.00 / 3.5 hr. intensive.

Taught privately in my studio, or your home  – custom-tailored to meet 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.

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?
