Our Studios are based on Dorothy Guerra's Yoga Birth Method - A Step by Step Guide to Natural Childbirth 

The Yoga Birth Method - Step by Step Guide to Natural Childbirth has been translated to 4 languages and published in 5 Countries to date.  It has been nominated as a Finalist for one of the best health book in 2014 by Foreward Review and has been regarded as one of the fasted growing birth methods in the world.  Yoga Birth Method has made great strides worldwide in helping women lower their chances in C-Sections for first time births and reducing interventions.  Women have been empowered to birth naturally using this method and its guided labor techniques. 

The Yoga Birth Method uses specific postures, comfort measures and breathing intentions in each stage of labor to create an enlightened and mindful childbirth experience. This method is the best way to achieve natural childbirth because it teaches you how to understand medical interventions, when to use them, when to avoid them empowering you to make informed birthing choices.
