How to use yoga to deal with giving birth

SHE is breathing new life into the bodies of expectant and new mums.

Lisa Burgess is passionate about naturally increasing the vitality and energy levels in women in all stages of pregnancy and post- pregnancy.

And her weapon of choice is yoga.

As the brain behind Reach Synergy Health and Fitness, Ms Burgess knows she is on to a winning formula.

"If a mother is distressed during labour, the baby's heart rate drops," she said.

"Yoga is great for connecting with your body during times of stress."

Ms Burgess says she implements practices proven to increase awareness, strength, flexibility and muscle development.

A Tannum Sands resident of 15 years, the mother of two has used her techniques during pregnancy with her two children.

"After noticing how prenatal yoga assisted me with my own birth and in particular, the recovery process, I developed a passion to assist other prenatal women within the region," she said.

"I love to empower women with skills and knowledge to calm the mind when faced with a challenging situation.

"This can assist to break the fear-tension-pain cycle."

Ms Burgess will be one of eight local pregnancy experts who will host an information night at the Hub on August 5.

Chiropractors, therapists, essential oils consultants and herbalists will be offering their insights on how to implement natural remedies while expecting.
