This workshop is open to women who have experienced childbirth in the past year. In this workshop we will be discussing the physical, mental and emotional aspects of self-care when providing for a child during their first year of life. We will discuss the cascade of physiologic changes that most often occur in women's bodies after childbirth and will offer postural alignment for daily activities, foundational strength building exercises, and breathing routines for healing and stress management. We will also offer some nourishing and simple recipes for snacks and teas.

Erin McCabe is a Professional Yoga Therapist with five years experience and a passion for restoring vitality through breath work and movement. With an educational background in Athletic Training and Sports Medicine, she graduated from Quinnipiac University in 2008 with a BS in Athletic Training/Sports Medicine and went on to get her MS in Athletic Training from the University of Kentucky graduating in 2010. Her yoga practice started in 2007 when she took a class in college and loved the mental and physical release felt from the slower pace and inward focus of the practice. After her own knee injury in 2012, she discovered the PYT certification and began teaching in 2013. Since then she has been incorporating yoga and a more holistic approach when leading class and working one on one with clients. You will always leave class feeling as though you have learned something new and created some space.
Cicely and Erin both believe in an individualized,
integrative health care approach and are delighted to be offering this course.
