January 19th Dancing To Delivery-Labor Prep Workshop

On Sunday, January 19th, 2014, at 4:30pm Brooklyn Heights Prenatal will be holding our monthly workshop, "Dancing To Delivery, Pregini Labor Prep", hosted at Area Yoga, 144 Montague Street.

Our November workshop was a complete success, still talked about, and repeat requested!

See our write up on

Led by our Prenatal Yoga teacher, and Birth and Post Partum Doula, Julia Arenson (link), we spent 90 to 120 minutes learning and practicing comfort and labor positions that add strength and flexibility to the entire body, especially the hips and pelvis.

Julia draws from her background in Middle Eastern Dance, incorporating easy dance motions to make this a complete holistic experience for mind body and spirit.

The birthing ball is used as an integral part of this workshop. Mats, bolsters, scarves, and balls will all be supplied and you my purchase your birthing ball from us, and take it home if you like.

Registration is limited to 12, so register early, as spaces are already filling up. The cost for this workshop is $35/$50 if you choose to take home your birthing ball. Some "reduction-scholarships" available, inquire if needed.
To register, email Jody at
Please include your phone number and due date along with your name. Thanks!
