One of the flyers I pass out to my Beginners Yoga class.  All of these poses have modifications, especially if there are lack of flexibility challenges, and people wanting to use the chair to assist down to the floor.  Adaptive Beginning Yoga to help you gain your wellness goals!  Gail Pickens-Barger, 409-727-3177

Depicted here are the kids version of the Salute to the Sun.  Typically kids and young adults have the ability to do yoga poses with little or no modification.  But, usually these groups do not have the awareness of their bodies, and as a teacher, you should still coach them to be aware of alignment, posture, and placement for a good overall safe yoga practice.  Go YogaKiddos!

Prenatal Yoga in Mongolia

I presented a Prenatal Yoga class in Avraikheer, Mongolia, while I was visiting Amber (who is in the Peace Corps) this summer.

Mongolians have this superstition about being on the floor in public, so they laid a blanket on the floor so that I could demonstrate Cat/Cow flow.

I then proceeded to demonstrate the rest of the poses standing, with the chair, or with the wall. Talk about a change of plans! Good thing I had come up with a alternate flow for doing prenatal yoga in chairs!

Now they want me to prepare a handout, so that they can take it at home and practice at home. Amber and I are working on that information, and it will be translated into Mongolian.

I had a midwife there also, and she was supplementing the things I was trying to say, for poses that you do during labor, with her expertise too. Great presentation!
