$100.00 Postnatal Yoga 6-Week Series
This postnatal class series, designed for moms with babies 6-weeks to
pre-crawling, is perfect for any new mom who's looking to reconnect with your body as well as with other new moms in the community. Babies are welcome in class if the timing works for their schedule. This is a safe and secure space to ask questions and learn while relaxing and letting go.
The series is taught by birth and post-partum doula Rebecca Henry. Classes focus on strengthening, stabilizing and stretching
all of the areas of the body hit hardest by pregnancy, childbirth and
caring for baby.
This includes your chest and back muscles, your core and pelvic floor as well as your shoulders, neck and wrists.
Restorative poses throughout each class will help soothe baby-addled
nerves. With babies welcome in class, you can feel free to stop your
practice anytime you need to care for baby. Each class gives you a
chance to connect with other new moms in the community and talk about
any issues you are having with your post baby body.
Rebecca’s journey with yoga and meditation began more than
twenty years ago when she took precepts with the Zen Buddhist Society of
Compassionate Wisdom, finding that a vigorous yoga practice was the
only way to keep her chattering mind quiet on her meditation mat. As
those practices expanded into helping her with the stresses of school,
and, later, work and family life, she has been exploring the benefits of
her practice on and off the mat ever since.
Forever a student, Rebecca brings a beginners mind and an awakened
heart to her practice and teaching. Compassion, empathy, humor and joy
are at the core of all of her classes. Her focus is on alignment and
mindful movement with breath in both a traditional hatha as well as
Rebecca completed her 200 hour training at Willow Street Yoga in
Takoma Park, MD, pre and post natal yoga teacher training with Debra
Flashenburg of the Prenatal Yoga Center of New York City and is
certified with Leslie Howard in Pelvic Floor Yoga™. She has also done
training with Tara Lemerise in Restorative Yoga. As a mother of two
young boys, she is impassioned to support other women in their journey
into motherhood through the mindfulness and body-centered practices of
yoga and meditation. As birth and postpartum doula, she emphasizes
childbirth education and body awareness in her pre- and postnatal
classes, bringing these practical aspects together with a warm,
nurturing teaching style.
