Keep Calm As You Carry: Mindful Movement for the Heavy Lifting of Early Parenthood with Melissa Hurt (Fairfax)

  • Sun & Moon Yoga Studio 9998 Main Street Fairfax, VA, 22031 United States (map)

This is for parents or anyone who spends extended periods of time taking care of one or more children, ages "baby" through "preschool." This workshop teaches tools for embodiment to reduce stress, speak in a focused manner, and keep the body safe while taking care of little ones. Participants will learn how to develop a healthy voice to connect with their child, find optimal ways of moving to keep their shoulders and backs safe while carrying a child, whether in a baby carrier or in their arms, pushing in a variety of stroller types, and placing in a crib. This workshop integrates voice, body, breath, and spirit to sustain optimal health while raising a child through the early years of life. Melissa is in the 500-hour Dharma Program at Sun & Moon. She teaches preschool yoga regularly and has taught prenatal yoga, Moms and Babies Yoga, Moms and Crawlers Yoga, and Family Yoga. She is a certified trainer of Lessac Kinesensics, and embodied approach to voice and movement training, one of 55 trainers in the world.
