This class may be for you if you are concerned or curious about your body’s ability postpartum or with prolapse, if you have completed 1:1 physical therapy treatment and are ready for your next step or want to start a safe beginner-level yoga practice and would like an inviting environment to explore movement.
Each class will begin with an intention and breathing exercise, progressing to vinyasa style flows and ending with a guided meditation along with a weekly suggestion for exploration or self-care. Each class will be progressive in positioning and challenge with options for movement needs, but will include a variety of positions from floor to standing.
