Restoring the Postpartum Self: A Workshop for Mamas
Saturday, March 21st
Modo Yoga, Greater Cincinnati
It has been said that once a woman becomes a mother-everything changes! Join Mindy Schlechter, RPYT, LSW and Ashley Solomon, PsyD for this unique opportunity to integrate those changes with mindful movement, tools and strategies for restoration.
This postnatal workshop will focus on strength for both the physical demands of early motherhood, as well as the emotional. It serves as a holistic means of empowering postpartum women through movement, education, and connection that is not to be missed if you are within the first year of having given birth!
We will share a postpartum yoga practice tailored to a mama’s specific goals of rebuilding muscle tone, strengthening, and maintaining integrity and alignment. Areas of focus include the pelvis, abs, shoulders and back. Meditation, pranayama, and tension release will also be incorporated.
We'll then dive in to what makes postpartum such an identity-shifting period. Dr. Solomon will offer information and tools to help strengthen your mind as you progress through this life phase. You'll walk away with a clearer sense of your new self and a plan for implementing your mental wellness goals.
This workshop is for mamas only, so take the opportunity to step away from your care-taking duties and turn the focus on yourself!
