Pregnancy and Birth | MONTREAL, CANADA
Friday 27 October 2017 | 6pm – 9pm
with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli
at Naada Yoga, 5540 Casgrain Avenue, Montreal, H2T 1X2, Canada
This course will be led by Uma as a demonstration of how to teach safe, nurturing yoga practices for pregnancy and birth. It will include a range of therapeutic responses that are helpful to support vitality and well-being including breath (pranayama); rhythmic and restorative yoga postures (asana), supportive sequences of integrated yoga postures that are helpful during late pregnancy and labour); nada yoga (sound); gestures (mudra), and heart-based meditations (yoga nidra). Common pregnancy and labour challenges and opportunities will be explored. There will be restorative yoga and fluid nourishing sequences of movement and breath to optimise prana for birth, and how to clear energy blocks and promote a connection with the inner teacher. Individual questions and experiences can be shared with the group - the course is open to responsive, intuitive attunements and adjustments to meet the specific needs of those attending.
Womb Yoga is all about reconnecting with the deep blood wisdom of cycles throughout the whole of a woman’s life, from pre-menarche to post-menopause. It is for all women, with or without wombs, menstruating or not menstruating. This way of yoga is a truly multidimensional approach which enables women to access the inner guidance of their source wisdom so that they may more readily reside in well-being and peace with their experiences as women. It utilizes every dimension of yoga practice to promote optimal health – from Total Yoga Nidra (yoga sleep) and meditation, to dance-like flows of deliciously feminine asana (posture) flows, and supportive structural attention to the intimate relationship between posture and pelvic health.
This is the first opportunity in the Americas for women of all ages and all levels of yoga experience to enjoy the teachings presented in Uma’s radical book, Yoni Shakti.
These workshops are for women only of all ages and levels of yoga experience. Pregnant women and babes in arms are warmly welcome. Health care practitioners with an interest in women’s health are also welcome provided they have a living interest in and practice of yoga.
“Womb Yoga brings us home to ourselves as women. To honour the natural cycles of our womb life is to dance in time with the cosmic rhythms of the universe.” Uma Dinsmore-Tuli
