The YOGA OF RAISING CHILDREN

Leave a comment

About 2000 years ago, Patanjali wrote the Yoga Sutras.

The Sutras are an 8 fold path to Absoluteness.

They are based on human values.

1. Do no harm (compassion to all living things),

2. Speak the truth,

3. Do not steal (ideas, words, trust, material objects),

4. Exercise self control, be responsible,

5. Take only what you need (NOT what you want) from the world,

6. Keep clean (emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually),

7. Practice inner discipline, find inner peace and self awareness and learn to let go.

Simply by raising children you agree to practice yoga every day.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
