Classes will include:

  • Group check-in & community building.

  • A guided imagery meditation to explore a specific theme related to the experience of pregnancy, like creating an inner sanctuary, boundaries, stories we hold, control, fear, intuition, grief, pain, courage, etc.

  • Prenatal yoga and pilates inspired movement and breath work to integrate the meditation, and to support the changing physical needs of pregnancy in preparation for childbirth

  • A closing meditation with time for group check-in and processing.

Imagery, a sensory way of thinking, is the natural language of the subconscious mind, a way of symbolizing inner or outer reality that includes thinking, feeling, and sensing in a tapestry that can inform and move us on all these levels of being. Imagery emerges spontaneously into consciousness in dreams, daydreams, visions, art, poetry, music, and in imagery-laden words and phrases. We can also learn to use it on purpose to open up a hidden treasure house of creativity, insight, and perspectives that can help us solve problems, avoid dangers, resolve conflicts and stimulate healing on emotional, psychological, spiritual and even physical levels.
