Helen teaches children’s yoga and creative dance at Mangala. She also teaches adult and pre-natal yoga and is registered with Yoga Australia.
Helen can think of nothing more inspiring than helping pregnant women nurture their own body and connect with their baby in a yoga space that is filled with over 40 years of children’s energy.
The Course: Fresh flowers, candles, ink brush artwork and lovingly made cushions and blankets will add to the nurturing that is so much a part of the Mangala tradition. A space where both adults and children learn to listen to their bodies and feel the inner joy that comes from the yoga, music and the dance. A very special place for you to connect with your unborn child.
Helen’s classes start with a gentle relaxation to music, yoga postures that strengthen the body in preparation for childbirth, breath awareness and time to connect with both baby and self.
First session $20/18 , then course $90/80 for five weeks.
