Book the babysitter for this one ladies! Lucy welcomes you to this two part series focussing on nurturing woman during the birthing years – from mums who have recently given birth to those with school-aged children, this is for you!
This two-part series will focus on a series of postures, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques designed just for mums. You will bring awareness to the subtle energies of your own body, connect with that damn pelvic floor and realise the strength that you already carry within.
Each workshop will work through traditional yoga postures as well as modifications to get the most out of your yoga practice, whether at home or in a public yoga class.
Workshop 1: Stretch, Stabilise and Strengthen
Postures and flow sequences designed to open those particularly tight areas (how are those toddler carrying shoulders of yours?) and getting your buff back. We will work on the areas that are commonly tight for women of young children, while focussing on the stability of areas that are commonly weakened as a result of pregnancy and birth.
Workshop 2: Relax, Renew and Refresh
Postures and flow sequences designed to soften the body, nourish the muscles and the mind. We will get thoroughly involved with the props as well as go through various alternatives that can be used at home. While we do take the time to completely sink into the luscious yoga cave, we also work on techniques to find ourselves in that zone when we are surrounded by the noisy chaos of home home life.
Both workshops include a yoga asana flow practice, restorative poses and a luscious guided relaxation. No experience is necessary, however bookings are essential as places are strictly limited.
Lucy has been running post natal Mum + Baby workshops in Kyneton since 2014, emphasising the importance of slowing down and finding your strength within. This often means that Babies outgrow the classes well before Mums are ready to leave, so these workshops have been created to allow the space for mums to continue that nurturing!
When: Saturday 4 June, 1-3 pm
Where: Illuminate Yoga Studio, 59 Mollison St, Kyneton
Cost: $35 per workshop ($30 concession) / $65 for the pair ($55 concession)
