“Double Feature“ Workshop: Prenatal + Children’s Yoga

This day of learning features two workshops for the price of one! In the morning, Rachel Cusumano will introduce us to Prenatal Yoga. We will discuss the many common pregnancy discomforts and ways to sooth them with yoga. We will learn how and why certain yoga poses can help during labor and birth. We will also cover what a safe postpartum practice looks like. If time allows, we’ll pair up and cover some prenatal partner poses!

“My body loved the familiar movement and flow of yoga, and I needed the peace that yoga brought into my life. Yoga quickly became more than a practice for me; it became a lifestyle of living more intentionally and mindfully.” —Rachel Cusumano, 500-RYT, PYT
