I’ve taken my Afterward Honesty Yoga project back to the drawing board.

I’m looking forward to offering you more online yoga in 2023! Stay tuned by getting on my e-mail list (via the pop up, or the static form below).

Yoga and its related practices have been a useful resource for me through grief, trauma recovery and on the path of involuntary childlessness. 

Our first Afterward Honesty Virtual Yoga Offering!

May 8 2022 Childless Not By Choice Yoga Class Description:

This basic, gentle yoga class is for anyone who is childless not by choice looking to tend to themselves on what is typically an intense (to say the least!) day for our demographic. It is an opportunity to have something for and about YOU as we hold our individual and collective space on MDay.

A bit of simple flow (vinyasa yoga) combined with the principles of alignment based yoga and basic breath cues will offer a functional portal through which to softly meet ourselves and our bodies.    

Modifications will be suggested throughout.  This class is designed to be generally doable for people with very little yoga experience.  More specifically, the class will include poses done lying on your back, sitting on the floor (or chair as an option), standing poses with feet hip width apart (no wide leg standing poses this time!), one entirely optional downward dog, some modified forward bending and folding, and raising up of the arms overhead with modifications offered. We’ll also be on our knees some. If you need to, please contact me to discuss the appropriateness of this class for your individual situation.

PROPS NEEDED:

  • A yoga mat or at the very least a non slippery floor surface
  • A yoga belt/strap OR substitute with a regular belt or scarf
  • 2 folded yoga blankets OR folded household blankets that have some texture and aren’t slippery
  • About 3 feet (in width) of empty wall space

Also, if sitting on the floor for a short period of time is not tenable for you, have a folding chair available.

In all areas of the journey, yoga and its related practices have the potential to support us in:

  • Processing the potent somatic aspects of our experiences
  • Facilitating and curating connection to ourselves and especially our inner selves, a most crucial companion for the paths we’re on
  • Cultivating the capacities to meet ourselves where we are at any given point in time
  • Tending to both our physical and energy bodies which have been through so much, and perhaps continue to go through so much

While they generally don’t function as “solutions” or “fixes” (practicing yoga within the experiences of grief and trauma can sometimes feel like throwing a raisin into a manhole!), over time they can offer benefits.  

When I arrived at the place in my process where “self care actually started to feel like it mattered again” (as I would say), I was sure glad I had a practice I had stuck with that I could utilize.

I feel passionate about bringing you the practices that have helped me through and to be with my experiences.  And, it’s my intention to bring them to you in a way and in the kind of space I wished and still sometimes wish for myself.

SARAH CHAMBERLIN YOGA BIO: I’m a registered yoga teacher (RYT200) who has been practicing yoga for almost fifteen years.  Primary areas of training and practice include alignment based yoga, yin yoga and mindfulness meditation, along with some restorative yoga as well.  My main areas of intrigue within the realm of yoga are anatomy and more optimal emotional function through the use of mindfulness.

I completed my 200 hour teacher training at Yoga Flow Studio on Long Island with Lorraine Aguilar, receiving my official teaching certification in 2018.  2021 saw the completion of Sarah Powers’ primary level 1 teacher training.   

By far though I’m most proud of “coming back to the mat” after each of my ten failed fertility treatments and one surgery, and of “staying on the mat” – in ways however minimal and inconsistent – through grief and chronic trauma recovery and then through a debilitating autonomic nervous system disorder. Additional areas of personal experience include biochemical imbalances, “silent” endometriosis and scoliosis.
