  • Prenatal Yoga 6-Week Series - January 8
    with Rebecca Henry

    Prenatal yoga is not just a regular yoga class adapted for pregnant people.  Join birth and postpartum doula Rebecca Henry for a very special 6-week Prenatal Yoga Series this fall.

    At a time when everything is changing in your body, prenatal yoga helps moms-to-be reconnect with and build body awareness, stretch,  strengthen and release the muscles most easily affected by pregnancy and foster a greater understanding of what is happening with our bodies during pregnancy and childbirth.

    This series will give moms a chance to foster a sense of community with other moms, explore techniques for preparing for and coping with labor and help make space for baby to turn into optimal position for labor and birth.

    Open to all stages of pregnancy and all levels of yoga experience. Accomodations will be provided for injuries or special conditions. However, if in doubt, we recommend that you consult your physician before signing up.

  • Post-Natal Yoga (with Babies)
    with Rebecca Henry

    This postnatal class series, designed for moms with babies 6-weeks to pre-crawling, will focus on strengthening, stabilizing and stretching all of the areas of the body hit hardest by pregnancy, childbirth and caring for baby.

    This includes your chest and back muscles, your core and pelvic floor as well as your shoulders, neck and wrists.

    Restorative poses throughout each class will help soothe baby-addled nerves. With babies welcome in class, you can feel free to stop your practice anytime you need to care for baby. Each class gives you a chance to connect with other new moms in the community and talk about any issues you are having with your post baby body.

  • Pelvic Floor Health
    with Rebecca Henry

    The pelvic floor is one of the most under discussed and misunderstood (yet one of the single most important) muscular groups in the body. It is the set of core muscles that control sexual function and elimination as well as hold our organs inside our body against gravity.

    But many of us don’t give a thought to those muscles until there is a problem; we spend a lot of time avoiding talking about “down there”, even with our own health care practitioners, much to our peril.

    This workshop is about bringing mind-body awareness to that part of the body, demystifying and “de-ickying” it, and helping you to identify why you may have pain or dysfunction.

  • Making Your Own Mala
    with Jazmín González Moya

    A Mala is a string of beads, wood, or seeds that serves as an amulet and a tool to count breaths, mantras, or prayers. Malas have been used for hundreds of years by Yogis and Buddhists, and is somewhat similar to the Catholic Rosary Beads.

    The Sanskrit word Japa means “to repeat or mutter prayers.” Japa Mala is a meditation technique that uses a Mala to stay focused.

    Join Jazmín for a special workshop to learn how to make your own Mala and how to use it as a tool to enhance your yoga practice through Japa Mala.

  • Yoga for Happy Hips
    with Megan Davis

    In this series, we will explore myofascial release and variations of standing and seated asanas that help us balance strength and flexibility in the pelvis. Tightness and prolonged contraction of the pelvic floor muscles can cause lower back pain and can contribute to misalignment of the sacrum so we will learn some techniques to counter asymmetry in the pelvis and all the things our pelvises are missing out on when we spend too much time sitting in chairs!

    This series is appropriate for students of all levels. Students with injuries are welcome and variations will be offered.

  • Becoming the Best Birth Partner
    with Rebecca Henry

    Becoming the Best Birth Partner: A hands on, yoga based, couples workshop to help prepare for labor.

    Join prenatal yoga teacher and birth and postpartum doula Rebecca Henry for a fun partner workshop that will bring together childbirth education and yoga techniques to help you learn how to be a rock solid birth partner.

    Many of the postures and breathing techniques practiced in prenatal yoga classes are not only natural birthing positions, but can also serve as comfort during pregnancy and labor. This is especially effective with additional support and pressure from the hands of a loving partner.

    Women often intuitively know what positions serve them best during labor, but partners are often at a loss of how best they can help them move between and support them in these positions. Natural labor progression is always enhanced when a mom feels supported and comforted by the people surrounding her. This workshop will focus on teaching birth partners how they can take an active, physical role in the pregnancy, labor and birth process, and therefore be a more relaxing presence for mom.

  • Introduction to Chair Yoga
    with Megan Davis

    In this series, we will learn variations for many common standing and seated poses using the chair. Most postures can be modified to be done either sitting in a chair or using a chair for support. This is a great tool for stability for students who need a little firmer footing, and also a stealthy way to get some yoga in while sitting at your desk.
