Solstice Seva

with Robin Beals 

|Thursday , December 21st, 2017 | 6:00pm-8:00pm |

|FREE. Donations accepted but not expected. all donations go to our scholarship fund|

About the workshop :

This year Solstice will be held at the carriage house behind the Robison Mansion!
On Winter Solstice, It is traditional to shed light in the dark by lighting candles or having bon fires. Scientifically it is longest night of the year. In honor of this we will do a candle lit yoga practice. Focusing of the light side of things, with a fun energetic practice. Creating space for a new vibrant energy. Candle lit yoga can be a balance challenge. It can also help to draw the senses inward, helping us find an internal drishti or focus. In honor of the season this class will be a Seva or donation only class. All the proceeds will be placed in our Seva account here at river lotus yoga. Seva means selfless service in Sanskrit, the language of yoga. This account is for those in need. When we see some one in our yoga community that has fallen on hard times or has a limited budget, we give them free classes from this account. After our practice we will have tea and some time to socialize. This is a free workshop. donations accepted but not expected 🙂 Feel free to join us. (click here to sign up)

The carriage house is behind the Robison Mansion at 12 riverside drive. Take 1st street past the mansion and look for a parking lot on your left. (first turn available) come early or stay late to check out the building 🙂

About the workshop:

Prepare yourself for labor!

Honor yourself and your pregnancy by taking care of yourself. Pre-natal yoga is a great tool to use to support you during the changes that pregnancy brings. Whether it is physical aches and pains, hormonal changes, or fears of labor/the unknown.

You will feel better emotionally, physically and mentally as you get physically prepare your body for labor, identify and let go of emotional blocks AND you will connect with other pregnant mamas. It’s always great to hear other women’s stories and experiences because it reminds us we are not alone! (click here to sign up)

About the Teacher:

Taught by Lesley Gilbert, Pregnancy & Postpartum Health Coach (certified yoga instructor and women’s health herbalist).  As a mother of two, you’ll get real talk about pregnancy and labor. Lesley creates a safe and inclusive atmosphere where women can openly share how they are feeling and what they are experiencing.

Testimonial:

“I took Lesley’s prenatal yoga class when I was pregnant with my second daughter. I had just had a tough move from out of state and was at a difficult spot in my pregnancy. I had finally been cleared for some gentle exercise and I quickly found a yoga class. Lesley’s class was just what I needed. I always left feeling calmer, more relaxed, while also feeling stronger and empowered. I felt part of a community. I felt listened to. It was a nice warm hug after a really tough couple of months and exactly what this mama needed.

I was really impressed with how she built community so quickly in a short class, everyone felt heard and welcomed. She remembered where women were at in their pregnancy and what they needed. She provided comfort and realness. She was also honest and real about her own family, parenting, pregnancies, and breastfeeding. Though, never in an “I know more” or “this is the way” discussion, more of a humorous, safe, brave vulnerability that made first-time and second or even third-time mamas feel included and heard.
I tried her tea at the end of every class and was always pleasantly surprised (I’m not a big fan of pregnancy teas and was surprised when I honestly liked hers). Lesley also would use herbs and aromatherapy at the end of class and I always enjoyed this part. She always seemed to accurately measure the mood of the room and just what we all needed. She truly is a barometer of pregnant mamas!

Finally, she was an amazing resource. She was quick and ready to share tips, resources, groups, and anything else that would help mamas with their journey.

I feel very blessed that I walked into her class.” – Corrie Carpenter
