Baby & Me Yoga- Postpartum Yoga for Mom and baby with Nicole & Quinn

4 Sundays from 9-10am | 2/4, 2/18, 3/11, 3/18
4 week series $60 | Registration open for whole series only, no drop | Baby's Age - Newborn to pre-walking

The unspoken connection between mother and child is incredible. From soft breath, sweet noises and adorable movements, we learn to read one another like no one else. In this class, we focus on mother and child meeting each other’s needs, as individuals and together.

The first half of class will be all about MOMMY! Babies will accompany certain poses and exercises or hang out on the yoga mat for moral support. Abdominals, arms, legs and some much needed stretches, will be our main focus. There will be specific movements for mommies who are experiencing Diastasis Recti as well.

The second half of class, is all about your MINI! Your child will enjoy music, movement and a lot of one on one time with Mama. Here, we will focus and incorporate movements to assist in crawling development, head/neck strength, core strength and balance. After this...a “wind down,” that will include a short baby massage, to help calm your little one.

There are always those days where baby wants nothing to do with yoga class…and that’s okay! Mommy can still get an awesome workout in and release some stress. So, don’t be afraid to show up as you are and surround yourself with a community of other Mommies.

Come celebrate YOU and your new bundle of love with us!

Yoga for the Nervous System with Stephani Sutherland

Yoga for the Nervous System with Stephani Sutherland

An overview of the nervous system with an emphasis on sensory and autonomic systems, and how yoga practice (particularly breath) can influence the nervous system: 

In this workshop, explore the nervous system with neuroscientist Stephani Sutherland, PhD, RYT-500, and learn how yoga practices can influence our body-mind at multiple levels. We will learn about how the nervous system impacts every cell of our bodies; how information flows into and out of the central nervous system through sensory and motor pathways; and about the autonomic nervous system, with its sympathetic and parasympathetic branches. Like modern neuroscience, the Yoga Sutras are a system through which to understand the body-mind. We will discuss how these two sciences are interwoven with one another. 

Bio: Stephani received her PhD from Oregon Health & Sciences University in Portland in 2001. Since then she has worked as a freelance science writer and journalist for publications including the Los Angeles Times, Scientific American and BrainFacts.org. Today Stephani's writing focuses primarily on chronic pain research (see RELIEF.news). Stephani completed a 500-hour training program in yoga with Gary Kraftsow at American Viniyoga Institute in 2013. Viniyoga is an authentic tradition originally taught by Krishnamacharya and his son Desikachar. The tradition emphasizes breath-centric asana, postures adaptable for the individual, and an integrated practice including pranayama, chanting and meditation. @SutherlandPhD
