My husband and I continue our Zen
Parenting series this Sunday (7/25) at Elmhurst Yoga Shala
from 6-8 p.m. and we are focusing on new parents
(with children ages 0-5…expectant parents, too!).
Are any of these things true?
You are experiencing an identity crisis because life is
different than it used to be.
You are losing yourself because your child (or children) demand
so much attention.
You are becoming a martyr.

You feel out of balance.
You don't have time to take a shower.
You are exhausted.
Don't worry, you are not alone…….please join
