Pregnancy Friendly PTSD Course

Sat Nam!  I’ve had such an overwhelming response to this new course I’m offering, “Supporting People with Birth Trauma and Pregnancy Loss Through Kundalini Yoga.  We are two weeks into the course and it’s going great.  I’m honored to witness such powerful energy shifts in the brave women who chose to face their trauma and transform it through yoga and meditation! The class is full- we have fourteen women enrolled in the course and there were several others who happen to be currently pregnant who wanted to join us to heal from past birth traumas and losses!  Wow!  I had no idea when I put the word out that there would be any interest from pregnant women in the community.  Boy was I wrong!  Unfortunately the kriyas, or yoga sets,  in the eight week curriculum for the PTSD course are not really pregnancy friendly, but being determined to help these women out, I’ve created a new course- a hybrid of my Khalsa Way Prenatal Yoga curriculum and the meditations from the PTSD curriculum.  I chose sets from my Khalsa Way Pregnancy Manual that seemed to most fit with the trauma course.
I’ve decided to open this new Prenatal PTSD course to any pregnant woman with any sort of trauma in her past- it is not limited to birth trauma or pregnancy loss.  The cost of the 6 week course will be $81.  We will begin this week, on Fridays at Birth Place, 5-6:30 pm for a six week journey.  No class on October 11.  Please call (406) 595-2547 or email with questions or to register.
