Use the power of yoga and nutrition to recover and thrive after giving birth. This is an amazing and challenging time for any mother. This course will follow yoga instructor, Pilar, through her own postpartum journey back to feeling great. You can expect to tone and slim the body, gain core awareness, increase energy, and improve balance.
This course includes 6 forty minute yoga classes. They build progressively week to week easing you back in to physical strength and vitality. The first class starts with Pilar at 6 weeks post birth with each additional class filmed week to week. The six weeks of sessions are truly transformative and will result in you feeling and looking great. We suggest you do the given week's yoga class 3 - 4 times and intersperse your days with light walking.
I have a Ph.D. in Community Health Promotion and Education, a MPH, and a B.S. in Exercise Science. My experience includes working in the Air Force Fitness Program, corporate wellness coaching (in industries such as trucking, manufacturing, warehouse, office, and university), and independent wellness coaching. Additionally, I hold a certification in nutrition, teach nutrition courses online for several universities, and work with clients in the area of nutrition on a one-on-one basis.
My philosophy is non-dogmatic, and aligns with a whole body/person approach to wellness. I promote that there are certain fundamentals that apply to everyone in regards to nutrition, but that each person has special nutritional needs to explore and tailor a way of eating for. I have training in mind/body medicine and food as medicine, and implement principles from each with my clients and in my courses.
Courses I teach for universities online include: Nutrition; Health, Wellness, and Nutrition; Stress Management; and Cultural Awareness in Health.
