$108.00 Postnatal Yoga 6-Week Series
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.
Owner/Director of Hatha Programming
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 vinyasa style.
Rebecca completed her 200 hour training with Tara Lemerise 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.
