My vision

Welcome, I'm Lauren Horton, director of Singingbird, Yoga & Birth support.

As your yoga teacher and birth mentor, my vision is to lead you towards your highest potential. Yoga in its very essence encourages this process towards change and transformation. 

During pregnancy, you have a rare chance to discover more about yourself and go deeper within, to surrender to the unknown of birth. Although this may seem a little scary at first, your baby has plans to show you things that will help prepare you, for birth and motherhood.

I am here to guide you, support you and listen to you no matter the fear, the obstacle or the doubt. I am your sounding board.

I will always respect your choices, BUT I will always get YOU to question them to make sure its really what you want and need. I will ask you to question your beliefs about childbirth so that you are making decisions and choices from within, from a place of knowing, from your intuition. I will encourage you to face your fears, and you may not want to do this. BUT I will challenge you to go there and I know you will reap the benefits for your birth preparation.

What do you need to prepare for the birth of your baby? 

I will give you the space, time and support you need to prepare, to let it all out, to be yourself, and to let it all go.

I’ve always admired Lauren’s dedication and commitment to all that she does. She has studied extensively in many modalities to make herself a well-rounded and knowledgeable practitioner and teacher.”
