THE YOGA OF PARENTING

BRING THE WISDOM OF YOGA HOME

A four- session workshop with Alison Rogers

Mindful yoga and self-compassion to reduce stress, manage moods, and bring more joy to parenting. The practice of mindful yoga can truly transform the way you parent.

Do you ever come home from yoga class and wonder where you left that calm, centered feeling? Do you feel postpartum overwhelm or Do you just need to find that quiet home within, and then take it home with you?

Develop practices that travel home to support and inspire you – practices that you can bring into your busy life on and off the mat.  In this four-session workshop, learn to:

  • Stretch and strengthen your body and mind
  • Cultivate awareness and self-compassion
  • Give yourself the gift of slowing down
  • Identify your deepest held values to inform your decisions as a parent…
  • Learn how to ride instead of drown in those inevitable waves of emotion.

Each session will include 45 minutes of slow flow yoga and guided imagery followed by journaling, light refreshments, and discussion. No prior yoga experience necessary.
