Gentle Yoga and Song for Women – Saturdays 9-10:30 am via Zoom
Starting January 16th, 2020
All female-bodied or identified yoginis are welcome. You can expect gentle, slow, and nurturing postures and flowing sequences that nourish the womb (or womb-space) and heart. We will begin with brief check-ins and end with simple English or Sanskrit songs. (You're muted on Zoom, so sing away!)
A perfect class for considerations specific to the female body or pelvis such as preconception and postpartum, peri-menopause, or simply surrounding a woman's cycle of bleeding. In each practice, special attention will be given to the pelvic floor, core, and heart center through movement, stillness, breathing, and song. Join us in a sweet circle of deep rest and gentle body awareness.
PRE-REGISTER: Suggested donation $5-$25. To register for a class, send your payment through Venmo @miriamdowdeller or PayPal to using the “sending to friends or family” option will also work. Join us at this Zoom Link. (please note, you'll need to wait to be let in, so please arrive to class a few minutes early).
