Event description
Women of all ages & stages of life are invited to a new experience & understanding of Yoga, self, & relationships with Crescence

About this Event

A full two day immersion with Canadian based elder, mentor and doula Crescence Krueger.

Saturday- Intimacy, Birth & the Feminine - 10am- 5pm- Lunch provided

A full day workshop where we as women of all generations are invited to come together and learn how our origin in the female body reveals how all of Life works in the flow of the life force sometimes known as Shakti.

You will discover the Yoga, dependent on no one and nothing, that brings us into the depths of intimacy and real love and learn how with active participation in this life-force, we can only expand and refine, rather than diminish, as we mature and age.

In relaxed, intergenerational company, we’ll explore:

+ Enjoying our female bodies and selves as the source of our natural enlightenment

+ Understanding Shakti’s expression through the stages of female reproductive potential, expression, and ending

+ Working with our sexuality and its vital function before conception; during pregnancy, birth and afterwards; and before and after menopause

+ Reuniting sexual energy into the full Heart of our lives and relationships

+ Giving birth as a full and obvious expression of Yoga

+ Embodying the breath-body principles of Krishnamacharya, which make yoga practice a tangible participation in our life force and its healing power

Who is this for:

For all women. Including but not limited to menopausal and post; pregnant; breastfeeding (babies yet to crawl are welcome too); yoga teachers and trainees; doulas and midwives; healers in and outside the healthcare system; single or not.

Sunday- The Yoga of Birth- 9.30am- 5pm- Lunch provided (if purchasing full day ticket)

A practical exploration of how — for any woman interested in getting an education in the heart of Birth, as the mother herself, or as a woman with her, whether a friend, relative, partner, doula, midwife, or other health professional. It’s also for Yoga teachers or trainees who would like to prepare pregnant women to give birth

We’ll explore our sexuality’s vital function before conception and during pregnancy, birth and afterward, honouring it as the most sacred aspect of our humanity, and gaining direct understanding that “relationship moves the life force, nothing else”. Specifically, we will explore:

+ how what you know of your own birth has informed your basic feeling about birth.

+ how the bodily relationship between mother and baby as one functioning entity through the process of birth works scientifically as love’s embodiment.

+ how the principles revealed in Birth are the same principles at the heart of Yoga, giving us the strength to receive Life and give it back out.

+ how pain’s function is integral in Life, and what the source, function, and unique nature of pain is in the Birth process.

+ how to use breath, visualization, and physical contact while holding ice to be in full connection to challenging physical sensation, and how that can positively affect perception and the mind’s response to it. This connection can be used as the main path through labour.

+ how Birth is designed as a spontaneous process, and how your relationships with yourself and others around you are key to how the birth will unfold. How can we create the right circumstances for birth at home and/or in hospital?

+ how can we breathe, move, make sound, be touched, and use water in the various phases of the Birth process to support our body’s wisdom.

+ how the use of common medical interventions, including induction, epidural and caesarean, affect a mother’s relationship to herself and her baby, and therefore the birth process.

+ how we can bring our present fear and trust in Birth together through a practical visualization and drawing exercise. Holding opposites together is Yoga, the peace found in wholeness.

All of this will be supported by an easy and effective Yoga practice in both the morning and afternoon.
