The Ocean Yoga Adventure
A class is for mothers and/or fathers with mobile babies, up to 18 months.
Therapeutic class for deep relaxation using props.
I started teaching Mommy & Me Yoga at Desert Song in 2010. At first the babies were very restless, until I incorporated singing and playing into the class. This made for happy babies, which meant we were all happy and enjoyed our yoga time together.
In 2013 I was a student in a 95-hour Kid’s Yoga training at Desert Song Yoga. My teacher, Mary asked me to teach a Mommy & Me Yoga class for the teachers. While preparing for this class, I realized that creating a set of yoga cards would be a wonderful idea.
My partner and I have been working on this project for the last 2 and half years. We are pleased to announce that the beautiful cards have arrived. Namaste!
This is Karen and her daughter Julia they were our models for the Sing and Play Yoga cards and what a blessing they are. We are so thankful to them for being there.
Sometimes it is really nice to just relax and let go! I created this deep relaxation just for that purpose. Hope you enjoy!
This is a hand hammered Tibetan singing bowl.
Our research has told us that these bells originally came to Tibet from India at about 500 BCE. These singing bowls are found in many different sizes. Some are well decorated others very simple such as this one many are tuned to particular notes for specific applications.
This bowl has been on our altar for several years. It has a beautiful and sweet tone. We have used it to begin and end periods of silent meditation. It seems to help create a sanctuary or a kind of vestibule no matter where we are. We strike the bell to mark the beginning of the meditation period and again to mark the end of the meditation.
I love to hear the ring erupt from the brass surface at the beginning of the meditation period. With closed eyes I listen. As the ring diminishes, I consciously follow the sound back into the silence. When the time for the meditation is over we ring the bell to leave our silent meditation behind and enter the world with the sound of silence in our hearts.
