INTRODUCTION ABOUT THE COURSE
Pregnancy is truly a wonderful stage in women's life. She is going through an incredible transformation. Pregnancy brings the whole new set of changes and challenges. Your body needs to cope up with the continuous changes occurring at physical, emotional, biological and psychological levels. Practicing Yoga in pregnancy makes sense as it prepares the body and mind to integrate the process of change that is taking place. By drawing your attention inward, your awareness of and connection with your baby is deepened, preparing you for the new responsibility. Practicing Yogic postures, breath awareness- pranayama and relaxation techniques is a stepping stone for the healthy mother and baby.
Pregnancy Yoga is divided in two stages nowadays - Prenatal Yoga(Yoga before child's birth) and Postnatal Yoga(Yoga after child's birth). Our Vedic tradition considers Pregnancy as a Spiritual Journey and pregnant Lady is no lesser than a divine in these 9months. As she is nurturing new life inside her, so she is a creator of new life.
We at Om Yoga, not only emphasizes on Asanas, Pranyama and Meditation practises during this period but also on many other such as: 1. Are the parents both fully prepared for child or not? 2. Are both physically as well as mentally healthy? 3. What type of mental level they want for their child? To have a child, first both parents must be ready from inside to have the child. If anyone of them is not ready, it is better to wait. And also they must have a clear mindset about what type of mental level they wish for the child? Before going for conceiving, first both should consult a doctor about their physical well being and must focus on their mental well being. Because at time of conceiving, physical and mental level of both plays a great role. If anyone of them feel physically or mentally they are not healthy, it is better to wait for some time first and when they feel are fully realxed, then must go on for child. Because if any of the parent is not physically or mentally healthy, so child also suffers. So, Yoga before Pregnancy is very very important.
Yoga During Pregnancy: Now comes the time when lady conceives, these days are still more crucial for both of them. Because this time lady suffers from many physical and mental challenges. Here both of them needs to pay a much more attention than before. As our Vedas says the child learns many things inside the mother's womb. For this, many expamples have been cited in our Vedas which we teach in our course like Ashtavakra(who had taken all the knowledge of vedas inside mother's womb from his father and after coming out, had given the great teaching of ashtavakra geeta to great king Janaka Ji), and King Kans who was son of very religious parents but when he was in his mother's womb, one day she was taking a walk in the garden outside, but unfortunately, the same time demon Durmil was also present there and his shadow fall upon his mother which had a great impact on the child present inside that made him a such a cruel king when he came on this planet and like this many more. From this it is clear how atmosphere affects the child inside. Good atmosphere also affects and bad atmosphere also affects. So, mother needs to take a lot of care in these days. Specially, what type of mental level you require for your child, are you giving him that atmosphere or not? It is very important to have a look that time. Each and every action of a mother affects her child. Her good thinking also affects and her bad thinking also affects her child. Her good actions or bad actions also put affect on her child. Like doctor says mother's physical health decides the physical health of a child. Similarly, her mental health also affects the mental state of her child. So, lifestyle of a mother is of utmost importance. It is seen nowadays, people do think before for a child that are they prepared or not? But during the pregnancy this thing is not taken in account. Even eduated parents fail in this. Very rare people are seen who knows about it. That how the physical and mental level of mother affects the physical and mental level of her child. It is very important to be aware what type of lifestyle is good for a mother? What should be her mental level? What type of people stay around you? For ex., you want your child to be a good person with positive thinking, not of disturbed mind, very intelligent, but mother in those days stays in an environement where every moment there are fights, negative people stay around, speaking lies, cheating others. So acc. to the thinking you had for your child you are unable to provide him a compatible atmosphere. This results is having a bad effect upon your child. So, this child will learn many negative things instead of positive things inside the womb itself. So, if you want your child should be a good person, mother should think good, stay around more nice people. These things are very important. Ofcourse practice of some required asanas , pranayama or meditation helps to relax the mind and be prepared for normal delivery.
Our course helps the mother to be ready for pain the delivery process. Nowadays, delivery is done through two ways: one is normal delivery and another is through C-Section. Normal delivery is ofcourse the better one and every lady wants to go through this stage. But this fact very much depends upon what type of life she has been living in the previous 9 months or whatever time. In this, Yoga has a lot of impact. Yoga with the help of many breathing and relaxation and meditation techniques prepares the mother for normal deivery rather than c-section. This also helps her to bear the pain she faces at that time. As this is tme most tough time for the lady because it is said the pain that oocurs to a lady at this time is equal to thw bite of 100 scorpions. So, this is very painful. By daily practicing yogic kriyas, she becomes physically and mentally strong that she learns to manage it. We here at Om Yoga teach many different yogic techniques which help her to go through the stage of normal delivery only.
Yoga After Pregnancy: Now comes the time when your child has come in this world. Here, again many things accounts. Giving proper care to the child, giving him a good environment what you desire for him. Keeping yourself physically and mentally healthy is again very important. Because if now again mother is not physically or mentally relaxed, aloong with her, her child also suffers.
