Cultured Foods for Vital Health Building community and immunity...
Free Demonstration Zoom Classes with Libby Golden Monthly 2nd Saturdays 12pm PST

Learn the basics of natural pickling a.k.a "fermentation" and get cultured!  These foods are essential to human health. For those in their childbearing years, the best time to start is pre pregnancy but if you're not eating cultured foods, anytime is the right time to start and they are inherently safe for you too.  We discuss how to slowly incorporate them into anyones diet.  I've been culturing foods around 15 years and am trained as a Master Food Preserver through Seattle Tilth.

Dancing For Birth™ empowers childbirth through the art of dance movement and there's no dance experience/skills needed!  Classes are the trifecta for birth preparation: feel-good fitness, childbirth education and celebration all rolled into a class that supports us preconception, pregnant and postpartum.  Classes guide us toward better birth and good recovery.  If you feel inhibited with movement/dance, these classes are essential as it is mainly your body you will use to birth.  Getting this movement into your body through repetition will be a boon once labor arrives.  We connect within and articulate our body's language for birth including the top five movements that encourage healthy labor through every stage.  Learn the benefits of upright and forward leaning birth positions and what to do if things aren't moving along so well. 
Join us! Enjoy a village of support, be fit, build rituals you can count on, embrace labor's rhythm, learn how to face your fears, discover the power of birth and become comfortable yielding within it.  You are welcome back to classes postpartum with baby in a wrap/carrier.  Partner classes welcome a birth partner to practice partner dances and comfort measure techniques.  


(Premera insurance holders and others: check with your policy provider, you may be able to receive reimbursement for prenatal/postnatal fitness classes!)

The Loving Hands Art of Infant Massage
 / Private classes offered / $115 in-home / private lesson included in doula package. 
See scheduler to register for a private class
In this class you'll learn:

  • a full body massage for baby
  • natural body oils and essential oils for baby
  • soothing environment and healthy caregiver body mechanics
  • acupressure and reflexology techniques to support wellness and promote good sleep

How to bring healing for infant woes such as:

  • colic and digestive issues
  • teething
  • coughs, ear infections, conjunctivitis
  • torticollis

Class includes info. packet for home study/reference.  
Class can be taken prenatally (if you want to be familiar with the routine before baby arrives, you can practice on a doll/teddy.  This way, you'll be more confident with the moves and you can begin to trace the movements with your baby from the beginning) or you can do with baby postnatally in the early mos. Thank you!  

Deepen your bond and communication with baby using pleasurable rhythmic, intelligent touch.  Parents and caregivers report feeling deeply calmed themselves by the ritual with more confidence in their ability to provide wellness care for their little ones.  And, if you're curious about infant pottying, this is a great time to ask questions about it as we're observing baby closely and tuning into baby's signals.


Infant Pottying This practice deepens communication with baby and helps parents reduce their eco-footprint and save money by reducing diaper use!   Also called Elimination Communication, it builds trust and a solid communication foundation.  Another name for it is Natural Infant Hygiene and still it is wet and messy at times, but, so are diaper changes!  In fact cleaning up a potty poop vs. diaper poop is way nicer ;)  Be green, build trust & meet your baby's need to eliminate away from their body - naturally.   This practice does take focus early on and requires all care givers to be on board, but it eliminates the need for potty training later on which has been a dream for my family.  In this class, you'll learn the techniques and tips you'll need to get your family "going" from the beginning.

Baby Signing Intro/Basics Learn to sign along with your baby. It's simple, and the benefits are paramount in easing communication frustration. Build confidence for you and your child. Babies comprehend and want to communicate, they just can't verbalize words yet! Average starting age to work with your baby is 9 ~ 11 months based on motor skill coordination.  For an in-depth class from someone who speaks ASL check out www.hoptosignaroo.com with Nancy Hanauer - Early communication and reduced frustration are literally at your fingertips!
