Rebozo Workshop

Picture yourself, heavily pregnant, uncomfortable, and fed up of waiting for baby to arrive. Imagine yourself in labour feeling uncomfortable, and later on after your baby's birth, feeling open and unstable. Wouldn't it be wonderful if there was a magic and wonderfully simple tool to support you through these moments?

In all of these three situations, a traditional shawl like the Mexican rebozo, can provide the most amazing comfort and support. Imagine having your hips wrapped and your bump supported, or being rocked so your whole body relaxes and softens, helping you move back into comfort and a better frame of mind whilst you wait for labour to start… having your bump lifted and rocked helping your muscles and ligaments relax and giving your baby a chance to move into an optimal position, and having your tense muscles gently wobbled during labour, promoting both comfort, progress and relaxation? And finally having your hips and abdomen gently supported after the birth?

The magic doesn't stop there because you can use a shawl to support yourself and your family through many transitions and emotional moments too!

The Mindful Rebozo Self-Study Guide

A20 page E-book with 30 Rebozo techniques you can use to support pregnant women each with a linked video.

This invaluable additional skill is what I teach doulas,  birth workers, and parent supporters in my spiritual and practical workshop "Mindful Rebozo". We cover techniques for pregnancy, pelvic balancing and optimal fetal positioning, and comfort measures for labour. At the end of the day you will feel confident using a number of carefully chosen techniques. You will also know how to use them mindfully, in a way that is empowering to your clients.

What makes this workshop unique? This is a small group workshop limited to 8-12 people so there is plenty of time for individual attention.  You will receive a very detailed handout, which contains my own unique mix of traditional and scientific knowledge. The handout has instructions, pictures and videos of each of the techniques, and contains comments from an osteopath about the effect of each technique on the various joints and organs. Attendance to the workshop also gives you access to a secret Facebook group of nearly 100 practitioners to provide support and exchange knowledge.

Comments from previous attendees of the workshop:

Thank you Sophie, you have so much knowledge and experience to share. Always an inspiration.

Great mixture of practical plus theory, very inclusive, easy to understand.

The course was very informative, easy to follow and enjoyable. Covered lots more than I expected.

Brilliant handout! Great explanation of the physical benefits of each technique, balanced with holistic benefits. Balancing discussion, practical and theory. Great session, thank you so much Sophie, this will make such a difference to my doulaing.

Good pace, teaching style, mix of practical and learning or discussion. Thinking beyond the use of rebozo to help with challenging labour or pregnancy situations. Just one fabulous day, learnt so much and can’t wait to teach it to my parents to be.

A really great training. Love the comprehensive handout which will now be at the top of my doula bag with my rebozo. I can now use my rebozo with confidence. Thank you.

It was brilliant. Venue was lovely, nice small group, felt comfortable to discuss ideas. Feeling far more comfortable to use the rebozo. You are a great teacher, thank you.
