This class seeks to be a space for healing and exploration, we do not work under the ridiculous expectation of “getting back” to a pre-baby body but instead honoring, loving and strengthening the body that has done so much for you and your family. Our time together on the mat seeks to support the mother, build a healthy example for baby and to nurture the spirit. Through mindful movement we will integrate the body, release stress and provide space for you to connect to your intuition with less distraction. The practice of softening, or surrendering to the changes of the body fortifies our ability to adapt with grace to the challenges and discomforts of parenthood. Please bring baby along, this class works best with pre-crawlers who can hangout on the mat or be worn during your practice.
