A healthy pelvic floor is more than doing Kegels. Proper work of strengthening and stabilizing the pelvic floor helps to create the correct foundation of each movement in the body. It is a basic tool to avoid loss of energy from this important area. A strong pelvic floor helps keep the pelvic and abdominal organs healthy as we age.

A traumatic or negative birth experience can leave a woman feeling powerless, overwhelmed and isolated thereby severely impacting her capacity to heal from birth and bond with her newborn. However, with the appropriate tools a pre/post natal yoga instructor and/or maternity caregiver can recognize the causes and risk factors involved and support a woman in processing and confidently resolving these experiences to return to a sense of wholeness.
This workshop is appropriate for moms with children age four and under and will include a short sequence that you can take home with photos and explanation of postures. As moms we spend most of our hours nurturing new life with our bodies. Nursing, holding, supporting or simply looking down at our baby/child can leave us with an achy neck, tight shoulders and a painful lower back.

Honoring Our Birth Story
I live just a few blocks from the Yoga Garden and last week while walking around the neighborhood trying to get my 18 month old to sleep on my back, I happily bumped into a new mom that had been in my prenatal yoga class. After marveling at her six week old infant I encouraged her to join the mom and baby yoga class and asked if she sent in her birth story to be read in prenatal class. She replied that birth didn’t go the way she had imagined and she didn’t want to scare other women with the details. I got it.
Practicing yoga poses and breathing can greatly improve your physical, emotional and spiritual well- being. When practiced with a loving partner you can both grow together creating deeper mutual care, trust and family bonding. This will help both of you with your pregnancy, the labor process and parenthood.

Two weeks ago I woke up with the flu; my daughter already had the flu and we were down for the count. Unable to find a substitute at the last minute, I didn’t want to cancel my postnatal yoga class, knowing the huge amount of energy it takes for mamas to get themselves and their babies out of the house in the morning. So, what could I do?
