Womb Healing

Friday, October 19th

6 - 8p

Healing your womb after perinatal/neonatal loss

To love is to grieve. When a baby dies, all hope is feels unnatural to outlive your baby. You may experience excruciating pain, anger, guilt, depression but we must remember to move through those feelings. When we refuse to go through and release these emotions it manifests in our physical being. We carry the trauma in the tissues of our bodies, within our womb.

The sooner we breathe into this pain, the sooner we emerge. In this workshop you will find the hope and strength to begin to heal your womb through movement and pranayama. The flow of movement will release the stagnant energy and ignite your womb. You will reconnect to your womb and learn to love it once again. You will learn to shift the devastating loss of your baby into a transformative growth.

This particular offering is specific to women only. Kayla has other offerings that include partners and men. If this interests you, please email us to let us know. Thank you.
