Yoga to Support Fertility Workshop with Nicole Blackwood

Tuesday, Aug 27

7:00 pm  – 9:00 pm

This workshop is specially designed to support women on their fertility journey. Registration is purposefully kept to no more than 8 women to offer a personalized experience to each participant.

For many women, this uncertain time can be stressful especially if you have been trying to conceive for some time. Participants will be guided through restorative yoga postures to calm the nervous system and bring them to a place where you can rest deeply. This form of yoga utilizes longer-held postures completely supported by yoga props such as blocks, blankets, and bolsters (cushions). Some gentle yoga postures and movement will be introduced to release tension with an emphasis on supporting reproductive health. Relaxation and mindfulness techniques including meditation, breath awareness, and visualization will direct you toward a place of inner peace.

The intention for this workshop is that you will leave with the tools to foster your innate power for creation and nurturing, and above all connect with your self-worth. Trying to conceive can be all-consuming, and these practices can help you reunite with the person you were before your life took this path, supporting your wellness and wholeness as you continue your journey to parenthood.

Nicole will reach out to you after registration to better understand your situation and to ensure a program that supports you fully through individualized instruction and attention.

Yoga for Pelvic Floor Health and Vitality with Darla O’Reilly

Saturday, September 28

1:30pm – 4:30pm

Pelvic pain and/or weakness, urinary incontinence, painful sexual intercourse or even irritable bowel syndrome can result from pelvic floor weakness or tightness or even both! 
 
Your pelvic floor plays an important role in bladder, bowel, reproduction and sexual function, and also in hip function, breathing, standing balance and more. Just as a clenched fist cannot grasp, a tight pelvic floor is unable to support the proper positioning and optimal function of the pelvic organs, bones and vertebrae. A loose pelvic floor can overwork back and abdominal muscles. The pelvic floor muscles work in harmony with your back and abdominal muscles and when one group isn’t working well, another group has to pick up the slack.
This class is designed to help you cultivate self-awareness and sensitivity towards your Pelvic Floor and help give you experiential insight to help you understand what is happening. This practice will give you the tools to help work with your pelvic floor muscles to help to restore health and vitality to this power centre that is so often neglected. You will determine which type of poses work for you to either strengthen or stretch your pelvic floor muscles; it is true both a hypertonic (tight) or hypotonic (loose) pelvic floor can be remedied through this non-invasive practice!
 
Darla is passionate about sharing her knowledge of the pelvic floor and is super-excited to offer this valuable practice with you. If you are experiencing pelvic pain, tightness, weakness, or just want to maintain a healthy pelvic floor, join us for this life-changing 3-hr workshop.
This gentle workshop is available to all levels. No previous yoga experience is necessary.
