"Having the CD to listen to actually made me take time out to relax. Relaxation is something I would not usually have managed to fit into the day. I found the positive visualisation of birth section particularly useful as my due date approaches. It definately helped me to view the birth more positively, and significantly reduced any anxieties and concerns I was experiencing. Altogether a very effective calming influence."

"The Journey of Birth"
A programme of pregnancy, birth and post-natal relaxation
''The Journey of Birth'' is a unique and personal experience. During the forty weeks of pregnancy, you prepare for the arrival of your baby in a physical way, but what of the mental preparation?
The relaxation, breathing and visualisation techniques and practises on this CD are a perfect way to rest and re-energise your body whilst mentally preparing for birth and connecting with your child.
About Sarah Brooks
Sarah Brooks dip ITEC dip YBT MGPBT
Having been both practitioner and teacher of Yoga (Yogawise TM ) and member of the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre, Putney, SW London, I was fortunate enough to be able to take the Sivananda International Yoga Teacher’s Training Course at the Dhawanthari Ashram, Kerala, Southern India in November/December 2002.
At the Ashram we are trained in exactly the same tradition as in ancient times, whereby the student would live, work and study with their teacher (Guru). This system is termed the ‘Gurukula’ (‘Guru’ – teacher ‘Kula’ – home) system. The practise of ‘Guru-parampara’ (Guru to student teaching) maintains the ancient teachings and keeps them a living tradition. You become part of that lineage when you become a yoga teacher.
The Sivananda Yoga Teacher’s Training Course is taught from the personal experience of each of the teachers and according to the teachings that we have been given by our Masters: Swami Sivananda and Swami Vishnu-devananda.
For a long time, I have enjoyed not only the benefits of Yoga, but the benefits of teaching Yoga and in 2003 embarked on the two year Diploma in Yoga Therapy as taught by the Yoga Biomedical Trust based at the Yoga Therapy Centre in Islington, London – among my chosen specialist subjects, I selected Pregnancy and with a love of all things Perinatal (Ante and Post Natal) I also attained the Birthlight Diploma’s in Perinatal Yoga and Baby Massage & Yoga.
In December 2005 I joined Doula UK having attended Michel Odent’s ‘Doula Information Sessions’.
I also hold an ITEC Diploma in Holistic Massage Therapy and The Herts & Essex Academy’s Beautician Certificate.
I am very much in favour of the Complementary Therapy Industry being regulated and overseen correctly – people’s health, well-being and happiness being my primary objective. Bearing this in mind, I am a member of the following organisations:
Embody – The Complementary Therapists Association
The Guild of Professional Beauty Therapists
FEDANT (Federation of Ante Natal Educators)
AIMS (Association of Improvement to Midwifery Services)
I truly hope that I can pass the benefits of my learning along to my clients.
