I love endings. Isn’t that a funny thing to say?

The closing day of the Prenatal/Postpartum Yoga Intensive began with Lee Macik of Transcendance Spa showing how to mother the new mother. Gentle massage through an Ayurvedic approach, food preparation for easy digestion, and how to create and live in this new, warm cocoon of motherhood.

It was time to replenish and set intentions for taking this, what they’ve learned out into larger communities.
