The LOTUS life - The muddy and murky recovery of postpartum spirit, mind, and body

Who am I?

My name is Emily. I am a mom, yogi, physical therapist, an educator and a business owner, and co-director of the Threes Physiyoga Method. I have been blessed with three amazing teachers; my six year old son, 4 year old daughter, and our new addition a sweet little baby boy this past spring.  I am writing straight from the trenches of mom life.  I have worked and taught in hospital settings, private practices, yoga schools and studios, colleges and communities, but this blog is a personal journey.

 

Why did I want to start a blog?

We live in a culture where postpartum care is not easily available. Due to limited resources, support, knowledge, money, time, energy and personal drive it can feel like an uphill battle.

My personal biggest challenge is that being a mom is constant.  The demands impact all avenues of my health. There is a need for women to know more about their health and wellness during their postpartum journey to recovery. We will explore postpartum issues of spirit, mind, and body through a realistic lens of the chaotic life after babies.

In this blog you can expect to see posted:

The practical therapeutic application of yoga, the science, healthy recipes, helpful tidbits, and gentle reminders of the connectedness that we are all in it together.

Yoga is a practice.  There will be successes and failures. It’s the mud and muck, the crazy and wondrous, I am writing to share the Real story.

Who would I love to connect via the blog?

Women, Mothers, Fathers, Health Care Professionals, Yoga teachers, Spiritual Practitioners.

Whether you are a mother of newborn, or had babies 5, 10 or even 20+  years ago this blog is for you.  It is also for health care professionals and yoga teachers that work with women who have had children.  I hope to connect like minded people that are resources in the areas of spirit, mind, and body to address the needs of women during the peri and postpartum journey.  

In successfully blogging this journey I hope to:

There is a lot of room for physiyoga here. I hope to Introduce, explain and explore the usefulness and practicality of physiyoga.  My hope is to empower you to ask the questions, learn the skills, and connect with the community that will support you in the journey.
