Being a mother is like running a marathon: you need the physical fitness to go the distance and the mental control to hang in there when things get tough.
Yoga as movement meditation.

Meet Alicia, your Guide.
Since gaining her Bachelor of Naturopathy in 2006, Alicia has practiced and taught natural medicine and yoga on three continents. Amongst her varied professional experience, she has coached competitive gymnastics in Australia, been the principle Naturopath in a 5 Star Integrative Medical Institute in Bangkok, Thailand and taught yoga classes for disabled children in India.
It was in India, when 51⁄2 months pregnant, that Alicia consolidated her 10 years of personal yoga practice with several months of intensive training courses. Two months later she returned home after graduating with qualifications in Advanced Yoga Therapy and Classical Yoga Instructing (500hrs), had her first child, and began a journey to solve some of the common post-natal issues that new mothers experience.
These live, online classes are a distillation of Alicia’s holistic philosophy of health. She has taken a scientific, evidence-based approach to addressing the physical, mental and emotional stresses of pregnancy and birth, and created yoga and meditation-derived solutions to them. The result is a program of well being that is effective, accessible, and suitable for all levels and stages of motherhood.
