New Haven, Conn (WTNH) - Gina Norman and Stan Woodman, founders of the Kaia Yoga Complete Wellness Center in Westport, spoke with GMC Weekend about the new Family and Birthing Programs they offer.
Family and Birthing Programs Complete Kaia's "Whole Living" Concept.
The Kaia Yoga Complete Wellness Centers have added robust prenatal, birth and family programming to their Westport Family Center to support the community every step of the way, from preconception to birth, infant care to older generations.
The new Family Center programming will touch on all aspects of the family and will provide private and group classes for Lamaze, HypnoBirthing, breastfeeding, individual lactation consultations, support and services for C-section or breech deliveries, birth trauma, and a wide variety of parenting classes from sleep issues to parenting multiples.
In addition to a comprehensive yoga program for all ages and stages of life, each Kaia Yoga center offers a full range of services to support families ranging from preconception, pre- and post-natal, pediatric therapies and family living and nutrition.
Spring 2011 programs will include a variety of pediatric workshops hosted by Kaia Yoga and presented by the centers' community of holistic practitioners who work to educate and support families in their seemingly endless choices in care and treatment. Topics will include: Naturopathic, Homeopathic, Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Also, chiropractic care, vaccinations, ear infections, nutrition through all stages, allergies and asthma and much more. Individual treatment sessions are also available by appointment.
The new programming is in line with the Kaia Yoga founding concept that raising a family is a community effort. "Our goal is to offer a space for connection, education and support," said Gina Norman, the founder and co-director of the centers.
