Update on YGSF’s new Mom Liz Gillian and her beautiful baby boy!

Little Derek George Hiner was born on Wednesday, November 6th at 9:00 AM- Just a bit before Liz’s due date. Her water broke late Monday evening and after a couple of days Derek was born into this world and is strong as can be. We are thrilled to see Liz and Christopher’s family grow and look forward to sharing more updates on YGSF’s smallest member.

Postnatal-MadjustYGSF-7985Cultivating Ease and Strength in our Bodies with Gabbriella Yates

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 »

Tea Time with Marisa Toriggino

Healthful, tasty and easy to make:

Tea, Anyone?

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!

Doulas

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 »
