This 8-week nourishing and supportive, trauma-informed workshop series is designed to honor the experience and potential embodiment of pregnancy using a specially developed collaborative and interactive approach to yoga. Influenced by yoga traditions, Somatic Experiencing, Secure Attachment, and Creative Process, we’ll acknowledge and embrace your emotional, spiritual, and physical experiences prior to pregnancy and guide you towards attunement and connection with the life inside you now.
Each class will begin with a theme and an opportunity for brief discussion and check-in. Next, we’ll move together through a tapestry of Yoga (movement, breath, mantra, sound, guided meditation) Somatic Experiencing (a body-centered approach to supporting regulation) and exercises to support, encourage, and develop Secure Attachment practices.
No prior experience with yoga is required.
Prior to the workshop series, participants will meet with Kristin for an individual 15-minute session to share relevant background/history and answer any questions.
To establish and maintain a supportive and connected community, this workshop series is limited to 12 participants.
