My husband and I continue our Zen Parenting series at Elmhurst Yoga Shala this Sunday, June 27 from 6-8 p.m.  We will discuss differing parenting styles, parenting as a team, and how to communicate effectively (with your significant other and children).

As always, the first 30-40 minutes of class will focus on YOU.  Think of it as "self care" relaxation, visualization, meditation, and mind/body awareness.  We will do a few simple yoga stretches, calming visualization, and some quiet relaxation to release stress and calm the mind so we can have an effective conversation about parenting.

Learning how to "let go" and relax is important for your emotional and physical health, and it also allows you to parent from a more conscious and aware place.

The rest of the time we will discuss how to parent effectively, even when parenting styles differ.  We will focus on how to communicate effectively, how to be true to yourself while respecting others, and how to reconnect with every member of your family.  You will leave the workshop with new ideas and greater awareness!
