DESCRIPTION:

Are you currently equipped to help your postpartum students return to their practice, to group yoga classes, and to themselves? After the birth of a baby, the body, energy and psyche of the person have changed significantly. At this tender time, many people feel like their body is fragmented, weak or even like it is simply falling apart. They may be eager to jump back to regular group yoga classes and when they do, can sometimes find themselves feeling even worse.  This is a workshop for all yoga teachers that wish to help their students understand how to practice safely through better alignment, deeper awareness in their yoga poses, and sound integrity in any movement practice.

Through our detailed study of anatomy and alignment we will learn about the postpartum "Core," understand some common issues that the post-birthing body can encounter such as Diastasis Recti, and learn about healing and supporting the pelvic floor.  We will also explore some simple Ayurvedic practices to aid in the body’s healing. After the weekend you will feel more confident in supporting your students as they make their way back to public group yoga classes.
