This week, April 1st, we will have a special treat!
Baby Belly Dancing with Julia Arenson.
Julia is a jewel chest of talents. In addition to teaching yoga and prenatal yoga, and being a practicing birth doula, Julia is a trained and beautiful belly dancer. She is the source of an original workshop, “Dancing To Delivery”, and now brings her creativity to Mama Bears Picnic.
Beginning at about 2:30pm Julia will teach and lead a gentle circle of Mama Belly Dancing. With babes in arms, or worn in
their carriers Julia will teach us the basic movements of Middle Eastern Dance. Since so much is expressed with the hips and pelvis, you and baby will enjoy the rocking and swirling motions, flowing to the music. Belly Dancing is great exercise and will add to your postpartum recovery. It is particularly good for freeing up the back, neck, pelvis and wrists, as well as strengthening the core. Bring a colorful scarf, or use one of ours.
And let’s have some rollicking good fun! The babies will love the hoopla, groove with move, and enjoy the special surprises we have in store for them!
We will have ample time for chatting and connecting, making this quite the afternoon.
Bring baby (newborn thru pre-crawl), your lunch or snack, and all the two of you would need for the afternoon out.
We are nursing and bottle friendly.
BabyWearing preferred, some stroller space available.
