    Pelvic Health for Women

    Do you experience loss of control of your bladder when you cough, sneeze, laugh, or when you exercise? Or do experience pain from tight pelvic muscles? Solutions to these and other symptoms of pelvic floor weakness are addressed in this experiential and supportive workshop.

    Using yoga poses and breath work you will learn non-invasive exercises that can decrease incontinence and correct placement of the organs while significantly reducing the need for drugs or surgery.

    Pelvic Health for Women is designed to strengthen and release pelvic muscles and heal prolapsed uterus, bladder or rectum. It is ideal for any woman any age, after giving birth or during menopause, before or after surgery.

    Conscious Loving for Couples During Pregnancy

    Pregnancy, birth, and parenting can be challenging for a couple.  Exploring tools for increasing this connection with your intimate partner during pregnancy can increase your ongoing joy as the challenges arise.  

    In this 3 week class, we will explore breath, touch, and yoga practices to build your connection.  We will explore our sensual selves and how you can relate more consciously with your partner, with deeper presence.  Learn about the differences between masculine and feminine, being present to yourself while building connection with your partner.  

    The second trimester ( 13-30 weeks) are ideal for this workshop-- before your attention has moved toward labor and birth.  However, we welcome you at anytime that it feels right during your pregnancy!

    Please come with your intimate partner: partner, husband, wife.  All genders welcome.  No prior yoga experience necessary.  

    Instructor: Aditi Grandy, certified nurse-midwife at Northwest Hospital and Paul Tomita, (Aditi's partner).  Paul is a massage therapist at Monroe Therapeutic in Ballard.

    Expanding Together: Yoga for Pregnant Women and Partners

    Experiencing pregnancy together is a dynamic journey. Practicing yoga together can build connection with your partner to navigate the challenges of pregnancy and birth. Through yoga practice, we will alleviate discomforts in the body while exploring the connection between the mind and body. As our bodies and minds expand, there becomes more expansion in our consciousness—a wonderful base for beginning the journey of supporting this new life that is coming through you.

    You can bring anyone as your partner: husband, wife, partner, mom, sister, friend….anyone who desires to practice and support you on this journey of pregnancy/birth/mothering.
