Summer Pregnancy Yoga, Meditation, & Dance!

Calling all pregnant mamas!  Join me this summer for prenatal yoga, dance, and meditation at Heartmanity, one Sunday evening (5-8 pm) each month.
(June 12, July 10, August 14 2016)
Practice an active Kundalini-inspired yoga set to stretch, tone, and strengthen your changing body as well as restorative postures to rest, relax, and renew. Learn world dance moves to facilitate a more comfortable pregnancy and an easier birth. Participate in a meditation to balance the brain, clear the subconscious mind, and welcome the cycle of birth into your body. Share a cup of tea and conversation with other expecting mamas and find your tribe.
New mamas with pre-crawlers are also welcome in this workshop, but please know that it will be geared more towards pregnancy than postpartum.
Instructor Gloria Overcash has been teaching yoga to expectant mamas since 2008. She is certified in teaching Khalsa Way Prenatal Yoga and Dancing for Birth (TM) in addition to her certifications in teaching Kundalini and Hatha Yoga.
$30
Sliding scale available to those in need.
Call Gloria at (406) 595-2547 with any questions and to reserve your space.

Blessed & Stressed~ Meditations for New Mamas

Being in the throes of the postpartum experience myself, I am remembering all over again how mentally, physically, emotionally, and energetically challenging these times can be.  Self-care frequently falls to the bottom of the to-do list while the laundry and dishes pile up.  Babies need a lot of attention, and of course we want to meet their needs!  If you have other children at home, it can be even more intense.  Caring for a tiny person is no small task and hormonal changes coupled with sleep deprivation can seriously compromise our well-being.  Postpartum experiences can vary greatly, and more women than you’d think will experience postpartum depression, rage, anxiety, OCD, or even psychosis.
In the Kundalini Yoga tradition we have several incredible meditations that I find very useful in the postpartum period.  I’ll be sharing them on Sunday, May 22, 10am-noon at Heartmanity in Bozeman.  This class is offered on a donation basis.  Donations will be put into a special fund to make prenatal yoga classes available to low-income and teen moms.  I sure hope to see you there!

Scheduling Updates

Sat Nam!
I am now offering two prenatal yoga classes each week.
Thursdays, 5:30-6:45 pm at Birth Place (820 N. Wallace).  Beginning March 31, we will move to our new location in the Heartmanity space in the Snowload Building on Main.
Saturdays, 1:30-2:45 pm at Your Yoga (20 E. Main)
Unfortunately I have had to discontinue the Mommy & Me Yoga class at Your Yoga.  We just couldn’t get the numbers up fast enough to keep it going.  I am willing to offer it again with a committed group of 6-8 mamas.  Please call or email if you are interested in this.  (406) 595-2547

Yoga for New & Expectant Mothers

Sat Nam!
With a new little babe in my life, I have returned from maternity leave to offer a very limited schedule of classes and the occasional workshop.
I will be teaching Prenatal Yoga (Saturdays at 1:30 pm) and Mommy & Me Yoga (Tuesdays at 10:30 am through 3/8/16) at Your Yoga.  When the remodel is complete at Birth Place, I may bring back the Thursday evening prenatal class there.
I plan to offer an occasional Kundalini Yoga workshop at Your Yoga, perhaps once a month or every-other-month.  Kids Yoga is on hold for now.
Thank you for your patience and understanding!

MATERNITY LEAVE

Sat Nam, yogis & yoginis!
This is just a little note to let you know that I am officially taking a break from teaching all classes until sometime in January or February.  There is a baby due to join our family sometime in November and I have been winding down and whittling down my schedule over the past few months.  I have found replacement teachers for my Kids Yoga and Kundalini Yoga classes.  For the past several weeks I have only taught prenatal yoga and mommy & me yoga.  Today the next phase of remodeling projects began at the Birth Place studio and will continue throughout this month and next so I have temporarily lost our studio space for these classes.  We knew it was coming, we just didn’t know exactly when!  The remodel just happens to coincide quite nicely with my last few weeks of pregnancy and it feels like a good opportunity to just slow down even more and prepare for baby.  Please visit the Schedule page for more information including suggestions to continue your practice with other teachers at other studios.
