As moms we spend most of our hours nurturing new life with our bodies. Nursing, holding, supporting or simply looking down at our baby/child can leave us with an achy neck, tight shoulders and a painful lower back. Join Gabriella Yates on Saturday, November 9th from 1:30-4:30, to learn yoga postures to reduce tightness and pain and increase a sense of ease and movement in your neck, shoulders and back. more »

Healthful, tasty and easy to make:
I love to drink tea and learned from my former mother in law in Gujarat, India how to make the best Chai. The best advice she gave me was to use the freshest ingredients and to crush all of the herbs thoroughly before putting them into the pot of water. Try and get some good black tea from an Indian grocery store (there is one in the Fillmore Center).
I make this during our Prenatal Teacher Training program (starting June 7th) and all of Yoga Garden smells like (the best of) India!

Join a discussion on the Yogasūtras and their relevant insight into modern motherhood.
The Prenatal Partner Yoga Workshop is an opportunity for pregnant women to begin or enrich a yoga practice with the support of a partner, friend, or other loved one. Practicing yoga poses and breathing can greatly improve your physical, emotional and spiritual well-being during pregnancy. When practiced with a loving partner you can both grow together creating deeper mutual care, trust and family bonding. This deep connection, and the skills and tool acquired through yoga practice, will help both of you with your pregnancy, the labor process, and parenthood.

A doula is a labour coach, a non-medical person who assists a woman before, during, or after childbirth, as well as her partner and or family, by providing information, physical assistance and emotional support. The provision of continuous support during labour by doulas has been associated with improved maternal and fetal health and a variety of other benefits.
At her recent workshop, Helping Women Heal from A Traumatic or Negative Birth, Gabby Yates and I were forturnate enough to meet some wonderful doulas. We would like to recommend Carmen, Lucy and Ilka to all of you. I’m providing their information below. I’d like to encourage you to learn more about doulas, and to conduct careful interviews before making a final decision. more »
