As part of our holistic approach to supporting families, we are delighted to welcome Helen Heppingstone back to lead our July workshop on 'Take home techniques for relaxation: A yoga nigra style workshop'.
Helen runs her own successful yoga business, Yoga Masala with Helen, is a Trained Yoga Teacher. After qualifying with a Bachelor of Arts in Leisure Science, she has spent the last 30 years in the fitness industry including the last 6 specialising in yoga.
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. Helen will help you with her knowledge and humour, guiding you through take home techniques for relaxation. The workshop will see you wearing comfortable clothing sitting and/or lying on a mat or blanket, 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 will be held in Subiaco on Tuesday 14th July 2015 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.
Please note we recommend you wear comfortable clothing to the workshop. A mat and/or blanket will be provided for your comfort, or you may wish to bring your own.
