This postnatal class series, designed for moms with babies 6-weeks to pre-crawling, will focus on strengthening, stabilizing and stretching all of the areas of the body hit hardest by pregnancy, childbirth and caring for baby.

This includes your chest and back muscles, your core and pelvic floor as well as your shoulders, neck and wrists.

Restorative poses throughout each class will help soothe baby-addled nerves. With babies welcome in class, you can feel free to stop your practice anytime you need to care for baby. Each class gives you a chance to connect with other new moms in the community and talk about any issues you are having with your post baby body.

Instructor: Rebecca Henry

Cost: $65 for the 3-week series.

Video replays are available if you miss a class.

About Rebecca Henry

Rebecca’s journey with yoga and meditation began more than twenty years ago when she took precepts with the Zen Buddhist Society of Compassionate Wisdom, finding that a vigorous yoga practice was the only way to keep her chattering mind quiet on her meditation mat. As those practices expanded into helping her with the stresses of school, and, later, work and family life, she has been exploring the benefits of her practice on and off the mat ever since. Forever a student, she brings a beginners mind and an awakened heart to her practice and teaching. Compassion, empathy, humor and joy are at the core of all of her classes. Her focus is on alignment and mindful movement with breath in both a traditional hatha as well as vinyasa style.

Rebecca completed her RYT-200 training at Willow Street Yoga in Takoma Park, MD, and an 85 hour Yoga Alliance pre and post natal yoga teacher training with Debra Flashenburg of the Prenatal Yoga Center of New York City. As a mother of two young boys, she is impassioned to support other women in their journey into motherhood through the mindfulness and body centered practices of yoga and meditation. As birth and postpartum doula, she emphasizes childbirth education and body awareness in her prenatal classes, bringing these practical aspects together with a warm, nurturing teaching style.
