Join birth and postpartum doula Rebecca Henry for a very special 6-week Prenatal Yoga Series in July/August! Prenatal yoga is not just a regular yoga class adapted for pregnant people. 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 physicial before signing up.
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.
Escape the city and give yourself a weekend of Kundalini Yoga at Blue Mountain Retreat center with Lighthouse owner, Jiwan Shakti Kaur (Julie Eisenberg). The New Year is a perfect time to reflect on what you’d like to leave behind and how you’d like the next 12 months – and beyond – to manifest. Through Kundalini yoga, meditation and chanting, you’ll have an opportunity to find balance in your life and set your intentions for the new year.
During the weekend, the kriyas will be focused on awakening the chakras, cleansing the mind, and letting go of what you don’t want to carry into 2020. We’ll then take some time to set intentions that we’ll take away with us, planting the seeds for prosperity, happiness and health in the new year.
Open to all levels. No prior Kundalini Yoga experience is required. Blue Mountain is approximately 90 minutes from Washington, DC.
Give yourself (and your sweetheart!) a gift of yoga this new year.
