Categorie(s): Yoga,

Time: 6:45 to 7:45 am PST

The perinatal body is an amazing opportunity. It is a body of potential, of creativity, and of great wisdom. However its power is often overshadowed by fear.

During pregnancy women often receive many negative messages about their bodies and labor. They often have worries about childbirth and the health of their baby that are fed by our media and the people around them. Postpartum moms are adjusting to life with baby (and without sleep). Their whole world, and their body, has changed.

Yoga practice is a wonderful support for this amazing but challenging time. As yoga teachers and practitioners we can learn about the perinatal body in order to be a positive rather than a fear-based guide for yoga practice, be it for our students or ourselves.

Join us to learn the basics of how we can modify yoga and help women embrace the positive during pregnancy and into motherhood.
