A Graceful Journey into Motherhood: A Workshop for New Mamas & Mamas-to-Be

  • Heartwell Institute 1015 Pleasant Street Worcester, MA 01602 United States (map)

This workshop is meant to serve women entering or who have recently entered motherhood. 

The prenatal period and the first 3 months postpartum, otherwise known as the 4th trimester, is a time when a woman experiences heightened sensitivity to her surroundings and when taking care of herself so she can take the best care of her baby is of greatest importance.  Together we will embrace this sensitive, life-changing, and unique time period and integrate rituals and practices that will serve the mother and, in turn, her growing family.  

This workshop is designed to help the woman create space to feel and understand her emotions, develop self-care rituals for physical stamina and strength, as well as mental and emotional balance, and, finally, develop deep and supportive connections with other women going through this journey. 

As long as we have the tools and habits to take good care of ourselves holistically, we can create the conditions for not only an easeful and fulfilling pregnancy, but a balanced, mindful, and nourishing postpartum and beyond.   We are setting the stage for a healthy, and rewarding first year of becoming a mother, to help you embrace motherhood with all the right tools and support.   

The morning will consist of

  • a short yoga practice for all levels

  • self-massage with Yoga Tune-Up balls

  • a meditation

  • a group exercise that will introduce participants to the benefits of daily practice for sustainable well-being

A nourishing snack will be provided.  Please let us know if you have any allergies or sensitivities. Please wear comfortable clothing/layers, a journal and a pen.

Participants will receive:

  • a pair of Yoga Tune-Up therapy balls

  • recipes for a healthy postpartum

  • a surprise gift for self-care to take home with you

Audience:  Open to all women.  Designed for women in the prenatal phase and the first two years postpartum..
