Mindful Mama's:  A Guide of what to expect during Pregnancy

~LIVE webinar~

Date: Thursday, January 5th, 2017

Time: 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm MST

Congratulations on your pregnancy!  After the glow of seeing the positive result and the constant exhaustion during the first 12 weeks of creation, pregnancy starts to feel a bit more real with the growth and ailments that contribute to this bountiful journey.  Ever wonder why your obstetrician or midwfie has advised you to sleep on your left side during pregnancy?  Or why you feel a sudden pulling or tightening in the abdomen?  Ever have those questions of, 'is this normal'? or 'why is this happening'?  

This webinar is designed for mother's to understand and connect with the changes in their own body and to establish or reaffirm the mind-body connection needed to stay present in each and every moment during the pregnancy stage.  Some questions seem to go unanswered as to the 'why does this happen during pregnancy' or 'why didn't anyone tell me this before'?  The intention behind this 3 hour webinar is to educated mother's on important information that is being overlooked in the medical community.  It's a mixture of mothers not understanding which questions to ask and medical professionals not having enough time to educate mother's.  Join Clare Newman for this 3 hour webinar to learn about the changes occuring in your body and understanding the bodies meaning to all those unanswered questions.

Date:  Thursday, May 4th, 2017

Time:  12:00 – 3:00 PM MST

Preparing for birth is so much more than just reading a book or actively particpating in preparation classes.  Birthing is one of those typical situations a mother finds herself in when she tries to prepare but could never really prepare enough.  To birth conciously a mother must access a deep, primal vortex that may have been untouched or even undiscovered until that very unexpected and anticipated moment.  The correlation between the history and practice of yoga and birthing weaves a wonderful story of unconscious consciouness.  Join Clare Newman in this 3 hour webinar about Conscious Birthing and the Wisdom of Yoga for mothers.

Postpartum 

 

Finding Central Stability:  You, Your Spine and Your Core

~LIVE webinars ~

Date:  September 21st, 2017

Time: 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm MST

Your central stability "core" is what allows you to access, align and control the centre of your physical being; to become groudnded from the core of who you are and radiate out to the external world with strength, flexibility, control, adaptability, resilience and least affort.  

The word :core: means so many different things to different people.  Unfortunately, all too often, well intentioned attempts to strengthen our "core" can lead to "onstipated rigidity" rather than central stability creating issues with the breath, the spine and integrity of the pelvic floor.  More and more pelvic health professionals are finding degrees of pelvic organ prolapse in postpartum women and in women never having had children.  Could the way we're teaching and cueing "the core" in yoga be contributing to these issues and how can we ensure that a yoga practice supports rather than compromises healthy central stability.  

Join Heidi Mason, Physical Therapist and Yoga Teacher to explore and clarify some importnat concepts  surrounding the "core" as so much more then abdomianl strengthbut as a dynamic 3 dimensional system working (or perhaps not working) at the spine, pelvis and centre of our being to create functional stability and mobility.  

  • Topics of Discussion:
    • What is the "core" and why is it important?
    • What does the "core" have to do with the breath?
    • Could downtraining/letting go of the core be as importnat as contracting it?
    • What is "neutral spine" and what does it have to do with central stability?
    • How do we access our central stability and then know it's working properly?
    • As yoga teachers, how do we cue the core?  Do we have to cue it and how do we know if students are "getting it" safely?
    • Why is awareness of the mind, body and breath pivotal?

Leave this 3 hr webinar with an empowering set of "core" guidelines, a check list ased on self-awareness, designed for you and your students to self-assess during any asana or exercist to optimize safe performancex.  It's time to evolve past "one size fits all" cueing in hopes of the "right" contractions.  Gain an appreciation for the important role yoga can play in connecting people to their own unique inner strength and stability.
