Yoga for Connection: For Parents & Caregivers

Saturday, April 20 with Andrea Barton and Michele Snyder at Westgate from 2:00 – 4:00pm

Let’s face it, parenting can be dynamic, delightful and downright depleting. If we explore with an open heart, even the most well-intentioned and loving families may recognize a lack of true connection due to the commitments and pace of modern family life. But we can slow down and pause, re-connecting with ourselves and those we love, in an authentic way that honors each individual. Through the discussion and practice of yogic philosophy, mindfulness techniques, verbal and physical communication, the effect of breath upon reality, and remembering the joy of play we will disconnect to reconnect.

In this offering we will cover the following areas:

  • Awareness
  • Breath & Relaxation
  • Connection

about your teacher

Andrea B

Andrea began practicing yoga in 2002, searching for healthy ways to offset stress as a software game producer, but discovered a deeper connection to herself and her practice years later during pregnancy. Seeking comfort in her changing physical body and the confidence to surrender during birth and delivery, yoga provided a path of self-discovery, strengthening and softening. Once Andrea became a mother she chose to spend the next many years nurturing her three spirited children, and a desire unfolded to serve her community in a more profound way. As a passionate advocate for a woman’s right to a supportive, fulfilling birth experience, guiding pregnant mothers throughout their yoga practice was a natural fit.
Andrea is grateful to have studied under Jenn Wooten and Angie Knight, as well as Alice Duffy, Sarah Evans and DeLora Frederickson. Her hatha classes emphasize functional movements intended to calm the nervous system, gently encourage flexibility and quiet the mind’s inner chatter. Prenatal classes add an emphasis on reducing anxiety surrounding the unknown, visualizing a happy and healthy birth experience, and embracing the inherent wisdom of the female body.

Michele

Michele has lived in the Austin area since 1997. While attending college at South West Texas she found herself in her first yoga class and absolutely fell in love. For the past 10 years, Michele has been raising her 3 children, one of which was diagnosed with Autism. She is passionate about supporting families with special needs, being an advocate and training others on how to support this population. In her children’s classes, you can expect her to teach breathing and calming techniques to help children regulate and cope with life’s obstacles. In her adult classes, you can expect attention to alignment, modifications and dynamic movement. Michele believes in making yoga accessible to all and focuses on how to take yoga off the mat to create deeper connections to oneself and others.
