It is well understood that the trauma associated with high risk pregnancy and/or having a baby born premature or sick increases your chance of experiencing anxiety, post traumatic stress and/or post natal depression.
As part of our holistic approach to supporting families, our second workshop will focus on relaxation techniques.
We are pleased to introduce Helen Heppingstone as our presenter for this workshop. Helen runs her own successful yoga business, Yoga Masala with Helen, is a Trained Yoga Teacher and Committee Member of Yoga Australia. After qualifying with a Bachelor of Arts in Leisure Science, she has spent the last 30 years in the fitness industry including the last 5 specialising in yoga.
Helen will transform you with her knowledge and humour, guiding you through an introduction to relaxation techniques. The workshop will see you sitting in a chair, learning to balance the body and connecting with the breath to calm the mind. The session will introduce you to the benefits of these techniques in bringing your system back into harmony, reducing blood pressure and reducing stress levels. The workshop is designed to give you take home techniques that you can use anywhere, at any time.
The workshop will be held in Subiaco on Wednesday 20th August at 7pm. It is open to all families affected by high risk pregnancy, premature birth or having a sick newborn and medical professionals working in this stressful environment.
