This postnatal class series, designed for people with babies 6-weeks to pre-crawling, will focus on exploring and learning about how the core, pelvic floor and joints can all be affected by pregnancy and how we can work to heal, strengthen and stabilize.  Restorative poses throughout each class will help soothe baby-addled nerves. And with babies welcome in class (both online or in person), you can feel free to stop your practice anytime you need to care for baby. And you'll receive a recording of each class, so if you had to leave practice to care for baby, you can pick up where you left off on the recording later! Each class gives you a chance to connect with other new parents in the community and talk about any issues you are having with your post baby body.

Welcoming the changing of the seasons, the Fall Equinox is the time when the sun is directly above the equator. At that moment, the day and night are the same lengths of time. It is an important and sacred time for many people around the world. This period also brings in the new fall season and allows us a unique chance to change and grow.

It has also performed well on tests to reverse the early onset of Alzheimer's  (See below for more info on that.) 

Join Nandi every morning to welcome the change of season and Fall Equinox with a clear mind and renewed outlook. It's time to go back to the ways of our ancestors or indigenous peoples.
