Resilience Yoga for Moms
Sunday, 2:30 pm to 3:45 pm, Zoom
Being with our kiddos non-stop is testing us all on so many levels–whether you have a baby, a toddler or a teen. I want to support as many mamas as I can, so I’m broadening the scope of this class and making it accessible to those past their initial postpartum period, so if you are a mom (or know a mom!) who is need of yoga, you are welcome to attend class! We focus on building core strength, increasing flexibility and range of motion, and using yogic practices to help us find presence and peace of mind to parent with a calm, centered heart. Equivalent to a yoga 1/2 level with many variations offered throughout. (not ideal for newly postpartum moms)
Prenatal Practice Sessions
Sunday, 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm, Zoom
It is not easy to be pregnant and preparing for birth during this time of COVID-19. Now, more than ever, the tools of yoga can give you a foundation to combat the anxiety and fear you may be experiencing in pregnancy, prepare your body to open for birth, help you foster awareness and intuition, practice conscious relaxation and embody the techniques you can use during your labor for comfort and coping. This class will be a blend of yoga practice, birth preparation and practicing hands-on partner support. The first hour will be a prenatal yoga practice, the last 30 minutes we will invite partners to participate for hands-on practice, support and Q&A.

Postnatal Foundations Yoga is for the postpartum body 6 weeks to one year, as you are recovering and healing from childbirth.
This class is suitable for you if you are a beginner or if you want to rebuild your yoga practice in a safe way, and will focus on poses that target all the new-parent tender spots–core, pelvic floor, shoulders and hips and offer relaxation and restoration. Babies are welcome in class, though the yoga practice focus will be on mom. You are welcome to attend without babies as well.
