Balancing the Brain: Easing Stress and Postpartum Depression through Yoga
Kundalini yoga and meditation help to balance the hormones, purging negative chemicals that can cause some women to experience postpartum depression.
By the completion of our Mommy and Me class I am savoring a little taste of serenity, and I can see this peacefulness reflected in my daughter, who sits on my lap as we sing the closing song. I smile and remember something that Susan Ricker had told me. "Women nurture everyone, but when we can nurture ourselves, everyone—our family, our children—everyone benefits". I take a deep breath and join the other mothers in chanting a closing "Sat Nam" — similar to namaste and means "truth is my identity."
