Holistic Pregnancy Workshops for 2010

3-PART HOLISTIC PREGNANCY SERIES – We have completely rebirthed our workshops.  See our 2010 workshops posted below!  (All held in Poughkeepsie, NY) Note — We have one coming up this Sunday, 3/28!  To register, visit the Centered Birth network.

  • Illuminated Birth I  Welcome your personal connection to your pregnancy, baby, and upcoming birth through self-exploration and inquisitive conversation, yoga, and prenatal communication. Explore questions such as:
  • What is the spirit of your birth?
  • What is this child teaching you from conception and pregnancy?
  • What are the places that scare you?

Utilize yoga asana and breath to relax, open, and strengthen the body. Guided relaxation/meditation will help you to open channels of trust and awareness. Prenatal communication is offered to invite a deeper connection between mother and baby, allowing baby’s unique voice to be heard and providing further intuitive guidance. Journaling exercises will be offered to participants as well.

This class is offered to expectant mothers at any trimester, pre-conception, first or subsequent pregnancies. No prerequisite to attend. Certificate provided at completion of class. This class is taught by Erica Chase-Salerno (Wyld Acres) and Marnie McKnight-Favell (Dragonfly Holistic) and is held on Sunday, March 28, 2010 and Wednesday, November 3, 2010.  Register at Centered Birth.

  • Empowered Birth II – A gathering designed to assist you in harnessing your pregnancy to ignite your birthing instinct and empower your path. We will explore questions such as:
  • Who is your community?
  • Who or what influences your views about your body?
  • Who or what influences your views about birth?
  • What feelings are creating conflict for you at this time?
  • How does this pregnancy change the direction of who you presently are? Or, another way to ask this question, How does this pregnancy challenge the notion of who you are?

This is an invitation to connect more deeply with your baby in-womb, to understand his/her unique energy and personality, and feel what this child is directing in terms of your self-growth. Additionally, we will explore yoga asana, breath, meditation and sound to help relax and open the body as well as affirm your resolve. Facilitated energy work and prenatal communication will be offered to participants.

No prerequisite to attend. Certificate provided at completion of class. This class is taught by Erica Chase-Salerno and Marnie McKnight-Favell and is held on Sunday, April 11, 2010 and Sunday, November 7, 2010.  Register at Centered Birth.

  • Transcendent Birth III – A prenatal workshop designed for those who feel guided to explore the transcendent nature of the spiritual journey through the landscape of the birthing experience.

This gathering will be intimate and evokes a safe and sacred space to delve deeply into paradigms about roles and events. We will find the essence of personal transformation through asking:

  • What themes come forth during this pregnancy for you, and in preparing for birthing this baby?
  • Where else in your life and your history/herstory do these themes show up?
  • Whose voice do you hear in your fears and stuck points? How do we imprint the words or beliefs of our families of origin, society, or culture?
  • In ideal circumstances for you, outside of time and space, how do you envision your birth?
  • How can you harness these awareness to transcend self limitation?
  • How do you align with open and expansive natures of your pregnancy?
  • How is your baby-to-be’s unique energy imprint/soulular connection guiding you in this process?

This class has a substantial focus on hands-on energy work and prenatal communication. Although this class series is not sequential, there is a prerequisite of either Illuminated Birth or Empowered Birth to attend this session. Certificate provided at completion of class. This class is taught by Erica Chase-Salerno and Marnie McKnight-Favell and is held on Sunday, November 14, 2010.  Register at Centered Birth.
