Uplift Homeopathy and Pre & Post-natal Yoga
Holistic Homeopathy: empowering yourself to achieve ultimate wellness
Homeopathy is a natural and gentle way to stimulate the body to use its own healing abilities by respecting the Vital Force. This is an invisible energy (also known as Chi, Prana) that gives the person his or her own unique quality and their personal drive to live. It can be expressed through the immune system, digestive or respiratory system, heart and circulation, sleep patterns, fertility and other physiological processes in the body and can also be expressed by the mental/emotional state.
This supports why homeopathy is highly individualised, with symptoms being the expression of an imbalance in the Vital Force. The totality of the symptoms, rather than a condition, guides the holistic approach and the remedy choice.
Homeopathy did, and today still does, the proving (testing) of remedies on healthy human beings. This way, the remedy will show its true potential, covering not only physical but also mental/emotional symptoms. Our remedies are prepared from substances that are naturally available to us. They are non-toxic, non-addictive and have no side effects. These qualities make the remedies effective for all people, including pregnant and nursing women, babies, children and the elderly.
Homeopathic remedies may provide support for a wide spectrum of ailments which are either acute or of a chronic origin, including but not limited to:
- Acutely: colds and flu, back pain, pre- and post-surgery, throat infections
- First-aid relief for many minor problems: bruises, simple burns including sunburn and sunstroke, insect bites
- Infants and children: nappy rash, colic, teething, childhood diseases, bedwetting, ear infections, tonsillitis, eczema
- Grief and loss: loss of a loved one, loss of work and income, homesickness (including migration)
- Pregnancy and birth, morning sickness, lactation, mastitis
- Men’s health
- Emotional stresses: daily stresses and worry, fears, exam apprehension, confidence issues
Homeopathy has been used successfully for more than 200 years by more than 200 million people around the world and is backed by thousands of research studies, papers and clinical trials.
Postnatal Yoga Classes
‘Mama and Baby’ yoga sessions can be part of the mother’s recovery and rejuvenation with the option to have her baby close.
The yoga programme will focus on the areas that matter most: the abdominal region and the pelvic floor muscles and ligaments; building strength to help support the uterus, bladder and/or rectum. Often this might contribute to preventing a prolapse in the near future.
There will be an introduction to the benefits of Baby Massage with the opportunity to practise during sessions.
Homeopathic advice for Mother and Baby will be available on request.
Homeopathy is recognised by the New Zealand College of Midwives as a complementary and alternative medicine.
Pre-natal Yoga Classes
Yoga can be practised because of the physical exercise it offers; for others to experience a moment of quietness in a busy life; or for some people to get in touch with their inner-Selves.
Pregnancy is often a good time to practise yoga, either as a yogi who has practised yoga before or starting a new journey. Pregnancy can awaken awareness of thoughts and feelings that are new or different. A mindful approach during this time can be supportive.
‘Holding Space’ are yoga sessions that focus on the pregnant-Self with time for restorative yoga to nurture mother and baby, adding joy through the continuum of pregnancy.
The Asanas (yoga postures) are designed for OBP, (Optimal Baby Positioning). Contributing factors to baby’s optimal position are a balanced pelvis, toned and relaxed soft tissue that surrounds the uterus, and mother’s postural habits.
Our lifestyle, both physical and mental, affects the alignment of our bones and the surrounding tissues, which often need adjusting, eg, through Asanas.
These yoga sessions can help you prepare for a more comfortable birthing process, benefiting mother and baby.
