- Yoga for a Revived Motherhood
3 week class series
Fridays 12-1:30pm August 8, 15, 22$55 + GST
“One of the hardest parts of post-partum depression is that the birth of a baby is supposed to be a blessing. A harvest of love. Quiet time spent inhaling the soft, earthy sweet smell of new skin. But instead, I felt like I was dying. I couldn’t sooth my baby. I couldn’t sooth myself. And I didn’t feel like I could tell most people.” – Lynn from “The Light Will Find You” blog
Postpartum depression affects up to 1/3 of new mothers and can arise anytime from after the birth until 18 months later. This 3 week session will address many issues that arise with baby blues, postpartum depression and postpartum anxiety.
We will learn how mindfulness and awareness can help to identify and examine our inner most feelings. We will examine connections – to ourselves, our babies and our partners. We will examine our own expectations within and the expectations of those around us.
If you are a brand new mom and want to have a toolbox to access during times of being overwhelmed, anxious or otherwise, or you’re a mom already experiencing Post Partum Depression or Anxiety, this series is for you.
Join Amanda on this exploration of motherhood and see what may be able to shift internally to make motherhood a more enjoyable or restful experience.
Mothers can come with or without baby.

- Urban Priestess: Yogini Moon Circle
“With wild nature as ally and teacher we see not through two eyes but through many eyes of intuition. With intuition we are like the starry night, gazing at the world through a thousand eyes. The wild woman is fluent in the language of dreams, images, passion, and poetry.” ~Clarissa Pinkola Estes
An Urban Priestess is a woman who is searching for something MORE. A woman who leans into herself and whose spirituality becomes a lived and embodied experience of her inherent wis-dom, freedom, love, and power.
Dive deep into a feminine spiritual embodiment practice with the sole focus of prioritizing all aspects of womanhood: caring for our bodies, nourishing our sexuality, respecting our emo-tions and intuition, creating our dreams, and honoring our spirit. There is no more powerful place to do that than in a circle of conscious women.
Connecting to various wisdom traditions – from yoga philosophy, Buddhism, Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, Celtic, Druidic, Native American, Women’s Spirituality and more – knit yourself back into the rhythmic weave of nature and realign yourself with the rhythms of lunar, solar, and seasonal cycles.
Embrace your Shakti (divine feminine) through exploring the ar-chetypes present in your life, storytelling, mantra, asana, pra-nayama, and journaling (and sometimes drumming!) while tapping into your innate feminine power, beauty, and grace.
Will you heed the call of the Urban Priestess within you?
Your Shakti journey awaits…
Select Fridays, 7:30-9:30pm
Sept 19/ Oct 24/ Nov 21/ Dec 12
All of us have busy lives and sometimes timing doesn’t work. The sole focus of these circles are about prioritizing a woman’s inner life, the part of us that often gets pushed aside when too busy.Lean in and join us as you can, when you can. YOU are always welcome here.
