* Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa, yogi of 30+ years, author and featured on many videos, has developed The Khalsa Way. Ingrid has trained with her personally at her studio, Golden Bridge Yoga in Los Angeles. In Gurmukh's words,

"The Khalsa Way integrates thousands of years of technology with the latest and most innovative birthing techniques. The effect is an improved physical stature and stamina and a heightened mental capacity that can benefit women choosing either home births, a birth center or hospital births. In addition, The Khalsa Way is unique in terms of its emphasis on community. Women celebrate together, sharing stories and experiences. They help and support each other. As a result, you are likely to develop friendships during the course that will continue throughout your life.The Khalsa Way is not simply a technique; it is a caring, a sharing, and an invitation to experience a new and vastly improved way of life."

Prenatal Yoga
Your Prenatal Yoga class was a blessing for me and my baby! The breathing techniques far surpass anything offered in the hospital's birthing classes. Your teachings of focus and endurance are what fine-tuned the breath to work through the hours of labor. And the exercises helped me push the baby out in record time. I also feel that the breathing and exercises had a lot to do with the fact that my baby is so easily soothed. She's 11 months old and all I have to do to calm her is hold her close, breathe deeply, and quietly chant.
