Affordable Accessible Movement At Home | Rachel Harvey Yoga

My Yoga community shout out this morning goes to the beautiful and wise Rachel Harvey Yoga.

Rachel is a local Yoga Teacher, recently returned to the UK from sunny Oz, with a wealth of Yoga knowledge and passion, particularly in Women's Health.
I recently attended her online Workshop around women's cycles which was awesome and enlightening.
Amongst her offerings are Restorative Online Yoga classes (Zoom), Workshops, and a library of video classes.
Please do take a look. For me, Yoga is all about community and what better way to build a community than to share what and who we love for the benefit of all ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ™

Reading Sleeping Beauty to my daughter tonight nearly had me sobbing with envy

This was exactly a year ago!!

It feels like a lot longer to be honest.
So much has happened in a year hasn't it, the world is a strange and confusing place, but then again it always is, right?
Infact the only thing that we can ever truly control is ourselves, and my goodness that is a battle in itself.

It is less than around 18 months since I was discharged after an emergency hospital admission for a Bipolar episode, and although it was not my first admission, and may not be the last, I have learned more in it's aftermath than ever before.

Yoga is the constant in my life, remembering to notice my breath, slow it down and tune in. Whether or not you live with a significant mental health issue, we can all "do" Yoga all day every day if we want to, with no Yoga mat or special poses.
If you want to create that Mind-Body connection, start with paying more attention to your breathing....
As soon as you do this one thing, you will notice that your inhale and exhale begin to slow down, this will cause a seismic shift in your Autonomic Nervous System, allowing your body to relax and your thoughts to calm down.

Breathe through your nose, inhale for 4 slow counts, exhale for 5 slow counts.
Start with this if you are new to Yoga and build up the length of the breaths over time, always keeping the exhale slightly longer than the inhale

Believe it or not, this is all you need to do to become a Yogi!

With love and gratitude to all have supported my teaching journey thus far ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ™โœŒ

15/08/2021

Our team member Clare (@madyogiwales) founder of the Mad Yogi and yoga practitioner, shares her experiences of perinatal mental health.

โ€œSarah[my midwife]told me "We are all here for you. We all care about you and want to help stop the pain that you are in. It's ok if you are confused and don't know what is going on right now, let me take care of that. You are doing the hard bit, and it's my job to keep you safe while you do it."

And then "But we should probably get out of this bathroom soon, the lighting in here does nothing for either of us."

Sarah became my cheer leader, my advocate and my guide, right through the resulting C Section and my transfer to the Postnatal Ward with my healthy baby girl. At that time, there was no specialist Perinatal Mental Health Team, She confided in me that a close family member suffered with a chronic and often debilitating Mental Health condition, and this, along with her Midwifery experience, has given her the insight and skills that helped myself and my partner so much.

My son was born nearly 2 years later, and in that short space of time, our local health board had established a PMH Team, and more recently Wales' first Mother And Baby Unit for mother's in need of acute mental healthcare has been opened nearby. These are fantastic breakthroughs and point towards a bright future for families in need of specialist support as well as recognition of the need for expert training and education in Perinatal Mental Health, so that our treasured NHS heroes can gain the support and ongoing development that they deserve.

Perinatal Mental Health Training CIC offers a diverse range of training courses from world renowned experts, many of which are CPD accredited, and they can all be found on the link in the bio ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝโ€
