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,
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 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.
