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 is great for all stages of pregnancy.
The days of being a “good” yoga teacher just by showing up with a complicated sequence and a fancy playlist are over. Our world is shifting and it needs yoga teachers to show up BIG now, more than ever. Our world is full of racial tension, hope, confusion, guilt, racial trauma, and grieving, and yoga spaces are not exempt. They are a microcosm of what’s happening in the world so you need more tools…more ways to share the transformative power of yoga to everyone you meet, no matter what race they are.
It’s time to take your practice off of your mat and into the world…YOUR world by having real conversations about race relations. It’s time to use your voice for change. Are you ready to level up?
This virtual immersion will empower YOU to use your practice and voice to show up in the world, ready to serve rather than avoiding the complexities of race by spiritual bypassing. To teach and practice yoga inclusively, you need new skills, new conversations, new perspectives, new self-awareness…you need mindful racial equity training.
Join Dr. Monea, Racial Justice Educator/Speaker and 500-hour Certified Yoga Teacher, for 5 weeks to take a deep dive into the realm of racial justice. Each week, we’re going to do a deep dive into challenging and complex race-related topics and material through small group work, group discussions, journaling, lectures, meditation, videos, and podcasts. We’ll use the 3 R’s- reflection, relationships, and resilience to do racial equity work the mindful way.
Thanksgiving morning Kundalini Yoga and Meditation.
"Saudade" is a Portuguese term that represents a longing, a desire to be somewhere or with someone when it simply isn't possible at the moment. While it has no direct English translation, the concept exists - and is currently very present.
This Thanksgiving is challenging for many of us who can't physically be with family or friends, and who are taking necessary measures to stay healthy and keep our friends and family healthy.
Join Julie for a 2-hour online workshop to explore ways to recognize, acknowledge and overcome "saudade" and find healing and support within community.
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.
Our Fall Book Club will be a discussion of the powerful book, The Body is Not an Apology by Sonya Renee Taylor. This life-changing book will transform your relationship with your body and how our culture uses the body as a tool of oppression and discrimination. Free and open to all.
The Body Is Not an Apology offers radical self-love as the balm to heal the wounds inflicted by these violent systems.
World-renowned activist and poet Sonya Renee Taylor invites us to reconnect with the radical origins of our minds and bodies and celebrate our collective, enduring strength.
As we awaken to our own indoctrinated body shame, we feel inspired to awaken others and to interrupt the systems that perpetuate body shame and oppression against all bodies. When we act from this truth on a global scale, we usher in the transformative opportunity of radical self-love, which is the opportunity for a more just, equitable, and compassionate world–for us all.
Grab your lunch and join us for this community discussion about this powerful and life-changing book.
Yoga Book Club is free and open to all. We create a safe space to discuss challenging issues, and through deeper awareness, we empower ourselves to create change in the world.
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.
