Home Practice – Core Values

David Nelson in BakasanaNot news, but this photo sequence and article that were published in Yoga Journal earlier this year are now available on line. I was the model for the photo shoot, which was an interesting experience.  And John Schumacher’s sequence and instructions are great to follow.  I really liked this sequence, because I think spinal flexion is often overlooked in our practice, and it feels really good in these poses. – djn

Moms, Dads, And Young Children Doing Yoga Together

Reprinted with Permission from Lilipoh Magazine

The imperative for higher consciousness can be no greater than when we bring another human being into the world and begin the process of raising our children. For the past several years I have had the unique experience of teaching yoga to mothers, children, and families to bring yoga benefits to pregnancy, childbirth, parenting, and family relationships. My experience is that a regular yoga practice teaches future mothers and new parents how to be healthier, more conscious individuals. Furthermore, a yoga practice extends that awareness to their family relationships and the choices that they make about childbirth, health care, education, social responsibilities and other crucial dimensions of parenting.

Because of the recent widespread popularity of yoga, most of us have a basic understanding of the nature and benefits of this ancient practice of postures and breathing: better physical health, more mental peace, and stress reduction. “Yog” is the Sanskrit word for “union”, and refers to the intent of the practice to unite our physical, mental and spiritual selves as one. The yoga postures and breathing cultivate our facility for self-awareness and ultimately, consciousness. In the end, this practice makes us stronger as individuals and strengthens our relationships with others.

With my husband, I have operated a yoga school in San Francisco since 1998. We teach yoga as taught by B.K.S. Iyengar, an Indian master teacher, who has been a leader in bringing yoga to the western world. In addition to classes for the general population, I have offered four classes that provide a unique opportunity to bring consciousness to the family process: Prenatal yoga for women from conception to birth; Prenatal Partner Yoga for expectant mothers and their partners; Postnatal Yoga for women and their babies from four week after vaginal birth or six weeks Caesarian birth; and Parent and Toddler Yoga for parents with children from crawling to three years.
