feedback from participants:
We could really tell that you enjoyed giving the class and that you knew what you were talking about.
Very nice to be served snacks and tea during your class. And it was very nice to have some practical exercises in between the theoretical information.
Looking forward to your mama - baby class!! Take care.
Best regards." - Lisa Nilsson
"My partner and I feel much more confident and prepared to go through the birthing process after the birthing workshop with Agnieszka. We especially liked the emphasis on practical techniques and movements to help prepare for and create a more comfortable birth experience, and appreciated the warm and open atmosphere that Agnieszka created among the participants. The last session with a midwife dealt with the more medical aspects of giving birth and was equally useful. We were welcome to ask questions and I found the midwife's enthusiasm both calming and encouraging. Overall we left the workshops feeling far more knowledgeable about the birth process and the Danish system, and with several tools that we could start practicing to make the upcoming experience as calm as possible.
Thank you Agnieszka!" - Jennifer
Agnieszka is a wonderful, knowledgeable and attentive yoga teacher, passionate about women’s health & balance throughout different life cycles. It is fascinating to follow her workshops on this topic because she offers ways to balance body, mind and spirit. I attended her workshop on conscious pregnancy and birthing. Unlike other lectures/ books on pregnancy and birthing, this workshop gives good insights into ayurvedic, natural approach for pregnancy and birthing. Agnieszka gives useful guidelines on breathing, meditation, psychological and physiological preparation for birthing, working with a partner, postpartum issues, etc. Her workshop combines both a modern physiology approach and ayurvedic approach. I was inspired by and found the workshop very helpful: following her guidelines supported me during the birthing of my son, which was 100% natural, with no use of medication. I also loved the exercises she showed, which one can do to prepare the body for birthing and to support post-partum.“ - Surayo Vahabova
