BirthWise - A Childbirth and Motherhood Preparation Course
Mar 9, 2024 - Mar 10, 2024

BirthWise- A Childbirth and Motherhood Preparation Course
With birth worker and Yoga Therapist and Morning Light teacher; Jaz Bashford

We are extremely fortunate to have birth worker and Yoga Therapist, Jaz Bashford not only offering weekly Pregnancy Yoga classes at the Morning Light studio, helping you prepare physically and mentally for birth; but also now regularly offering her BirthWise Childbirth Preparation course.

If you are aiming for a vaginal birth that will leave you feeling positive and empowered and you’re also seeking an easier recovery from birth; both physically and mentally; then this course will give you the hands-on tools and knowledge to help you achieve this.
Combining both ancient and modern birth wisdom; this course makes sure we are preparing the body, the mind and the Nervous System for childbirth: which all play vital roles in allowing physiological birth to progress and you to best manage the physical and emotional intensity of the childbirth process.


We’ll be deep-diving into physiological childbirth; what can get in the way of it; and the practical steps both you and your birth support person(s) can take to give you the optimal chance at having a vaginal birth of your baby. We’ll also be learning how to prepare for all types of birth and interventions; so you can still feel positive and empowered about your baby’s arrival into
this world, no matter the road to their arrival.

Who is this course for?


Women who are interested in seeking a vaginal birth and getting the tools and
knowledge to support them in achieving this
Women who want to dive deeper into preparing themselves for the (re)adaption into
Motherhood
Women who want to better prepare for a range of birth experiences, not just Plan A
Women that want to provide their birth support person(s) with the tools they need to be
able to support, coach and advocate for them in childbirth


What we’ll cover:


Understanding physiological birth ; what your body and hormones do to allow birth to progress; how this can often be misinterpreted; and what you can do to give yourself the most optimal chance of allowing birth to continue progressing naturally. We’ll learn allabout interventions; when and how to consider using them and how to Birth Map to best support your preferred birth outcome; but also adapt to using interventions when needed; that still means you feel positive and empowered about your childbirth experience.


How to prepare your body for birth: focusing on the theory of Optimal Maternal and Fetal Positioning and what you can be doing to encourage and support this for the support of vaginal delivery and more comfort during pregnancy and childbirth. A Yoga- based sequence is taught to you that you can use specifically to support this.


How to manage and integrate pain in childbirth: learning the theory behind why we feel pain and what we can do to therefore change how we feel pain. In the why part of this course we will take some time to reflect on our own behaviours and beliefs and how these may influence the pain dynamic in childbirth. You’ll learn how your birth support person(s) can provide tailored support based on this. We will then cover a whole range of practical tools you can use during childbirth to better integrate pain; including specific Yoga-based breathing techniques; visualisations; soundwork; energy work; and specific tools for supporting the management of anxiety. We also explore the use of the body from an Active Birth and Physiotherapy lens to better integrate intensity and support OFT; practising specific movements and positions to use in childbirth.


How to navigate physiological birth within the modern medical system: working with your care providers and your birth support person(s) to get a birth outcome that leaves you feeling positive and empowered; even when it’s a different birth from your
ideal birth experience. Why and how Birth Mapping is essential to helping you achieve this; and what to consider when working through your Birth Map with your care providers; prior to and during childbirth


How to prepare your birth support person(s) in their role for your baby's birth: a range of hands on, practical tools that they can use to offer physical, emotional and energetic support to you and also to be able to confidently play the role of advocate and
decision maker as and when required

Self Enquiry and Meditation Course - April Intake - Mondays
Apr 15, 2024 - Jun 4, 2024

Monday Evenings 7-8:30pm

15th April - 3rd June 2024

This comprehensive 8-week course is a highly practical journey of self at every level. With a methodical approach, it provides a rare understanding of meditation & self-enquiry that enables you to navigate the internal environment where you experience yourself and process life, and to explore a new found relationship with the external environment where 'life happens. A progressive system that unravels discord at the levels of body, mind and life experience, this course has a distinct destination with practical steps to get there.

FORMAL MEDITATION (Weeks 1-8) is the backbone of this course and is a critical component of every lesson. Through a progressive process, you'll learn to navigate the internal environment to unveil your original nature - a realm beyond mind chatter, cluttered thoughts, and turbulent emotions. It is from here that a new understanding of self begins to permeate your awareness to positively impact your life interactions.

EMBODIMENT (Weeks 1-4) brings a thorough understanding of the subtle energetics occurring within yourself for embodied awareness, along with the skill set to rectify disharmonious states.

SELF-ENQUIRY (Weeks 5-8) opens the door to transcending the mind in your wakeful day-to-day experience, to live from the place of awareness in a world of duality, and untangle personal suffering.


- Dive into the mystery of self
- Transcend the persistent mind
- Disengage embodied stress states
- Deconstruct the ego
- Resolve reactivity & trigger states
- Untangle personal suffering
- Increase emotional intelligence
- Develop unconditional calm & mental wellness
- Experience who you are beyond the limited scope of the mind
- Master meaningful & effective meditation (beginners through to seasoned practitioners)

Program Inclusions

  • 8x 90 Minute In-Depth Weekly Group Classes
  • Daily Immersion (Recorded practices coinciding with lesson content)
  • SelfCALM App with Q&A platform for support between weekly sessions

Investment: $345
