Conception, pregnancy and birth are natural processes.
The Ancient Taoists understood the cycles of nature and life and tuned into natural laws to develop a system of health that is still relevant today. Especially in the realms of pregnancy and birth! Everything we do as mothers to improve our health and vitality is passed on to our developing babies, at every stage of the childbearing year/s, from pre-conception to postpartum. Using the wisdom of the Taoist philosophy and an understanding of the Five Elements we will explore the elemental stages of pregnancy, discuss the energetics of conception and birth and learn how women can manage their energy and bolster their health during this time. We will also delve into practices to support the mother during this time, taken from the ancient traditions of Taosim and Yoga.
- pre-conception preparation: detoxification, nutrition, herbs, physical practices (yoga and meditation) for conscious conception and prevention of common pregnancy ‘ailments’
- the elements of pregnancy: understanding how the elements influence our experience of pregnancy and how to use this wisdom to have a happy, healthy pregnancy
- postpartum recovery: rebuilding jing and qi after birth with herbs, energy practices and REST ;)
