$100.00 Prenatal Yoga 6-Week Series
Prenatal yoga is not just a regular yoga class adapted for pregnant
people. Join birth and postpartum doula Rebecca Henry for a very
special 6-week Prenatal Yoga Series.
At a time when everything is changing in your body, prenatal yoga
helps moms-to-be reconnect with and build body awareness, stretch,
strengthen and release the muscles most easily affected by pregnancy
and foster a greater understanding of what is happening with our bodies
during pregnancy and childbirth.
This series will give moms a chance to foster a sense of community
with other moms, explore techniques for preparing for and coping with
labor and help make space for baby to turn into optimal position for
labor and birth.
Open to all stages of pregnancy and all levels of yoga experience.
Accomodations will be provided for injuries or special conditions.
However, if in doubt, we recommend that you consult your physician
before signing up.
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.
