Mammas-To-Be, this workshop is for you! Whether you are a first-time mamma or you have a growing family - come connect with other women during this sacred time when not only your body is changing but your identity is shifting as you prepare for motherhood.

Khalsa Way Prenatal Yoga is a yoga for mammas-to-be, inspired by Kundalini Yoga. Each class is a mix of meditation and movement designed to help ease discomfort, intentionally incorporates dance and potential birthing postures to build stamina, and includes specific meditations so the future mamma can begin to cultivate a toolkit of self-care and self-regulation strategies before the little one arrives. We’ll explore each element of this type of prenatal yoga class, its benefit, and participants will have time to ask questions and network during communi-TEA time.

The time together will include:

- space for Goddess Mammas to share their pregnancy journey

- Khalsa Way Prenatal Yoga Warms Ups & Movement

- Kundalini Keep Up, Dance, & Deep Relaxation

- Mantras & 3-minute Meditations for your mamma toolkit

(Optional) Communi-Tea Time

Elizabeth Bogart found Kundalini Yoga (or Kundalini Yoga first found her) when she was living in India in 2008. She practiced several different types of yoga, but it wasn't until she tried Kundalini that she felt "clean" after a class. It felt like brushing her teeth but for her brain. Her brain, body, and spirit felt sparkly, shiny, new, and oddly more whole.

It is her hope that each class offers an opportunity for students to clear away the static of everyday living and return to their true essence, so they can dive back into their lives feeling more whole, alive, and themselves.

She studied at the Kundalini Research Institute in Espanola, New Mexico. Elizabeth has studied with Gurmukh and is certified to teach Khalsa Way Prenatal Yoga, received her 200 RYT certification from Zen Yoga Garage, and has taught kids yoga for nearly five years. Once upon a time, she was a Special Education Teacher and the lessons learned in her first year of teaching still guide everything she does today.
