Kate and I agreed this post was one to... Read more »

CocoonCare Now Open in River North

CocoonCare Now Open in River North
When I was pregnant eight years ago, I had little interaction with other pregnant women and few resources besides books and the internet to get advice and learn the do’s and don’ts of pregnancy. I’ve said here before that my weekly prenatal class during my first pregnancy is what led me to yoga. New mom... Read more »

I’ve always said how much I wish I had a support group when my son was born six years ago.  Leasa Navarro felt the same way when her daughter was born two years ago and KickSprout began.

Instead of Medicine, Try Yoga First

Instead of Medicine, Try Yoga First
I very rarely get sick, I credit eating healthy and drinking a lot of water.  But, over the weekend I got a cold.  Maybe it was the changing of the seasons or germs from going to McDonalds, but it happened.  I tried to somewhat rest on Saturday and Sunday, but Monday I did not want to...

The Ideal Gift For Every New Mom

The Ideal Gift For Every New Mom
I am fortunate that both my husband and my families were excited, supportive and present when both of our children were born.  They were available to help; only problem was I couldn’t find the words to ask.

The People We Meet

I love teaching prenatal yoga because I meet a wide range of diverse, thought provoking women.  A hairstylist, a flight attendant, a single student, a 42 year old, a 21 year old, overweight, underweight, yet they share a commonality.  These ladies are all pregnant.  These females are so different, but they will all become new moms with kids around the same age. ...

Many of my prenatal yoga clients share their worries with me.  As a worrier myself, I humbly agree; there is much to worry about when pregnant.   Most of it is out of our control and with yoga, healthy eating, sleeping, breathing, positive thinking and education, there is really no reason to worry.  Educating yourself on your pregnancy will provide...

Are You Able to Let Go?

Are You Able to Let Go?
I have a hard time sitting still.  My head swims with chores I should be doing, projects I need to start or I activities I want to share with my kids.  Although I have always loved yoga, I initially had a hard time with savasana.  At the end of class, we lay on our backs in complete... Read more »
