Practice Mindful Movement



Bringing attention to the sitting body is one thing (and most people are surprised by how much is going on just when sitting quietly), but bringing attention to present moment, the breath, and the body while moving is a whole other ball of wax. As a mom, you will be moving a lot. The Mindful Motherhood Yoga Series designed to help you practice being present, aware, and connected with your baby, not only while you are sitting quietly, but also while you are moving around.

Jnana Gowan, mom, certified yoga instructor, and founder of Powerhouse Yoga Education and Seminars, developed the Mindful Motherhood Yoga Series. The Mindful Motherhood Yoga Series was illustrated by another great mom, Joanne Le Cocq, a professional designer and artist.

“With wisdom, depth and humility, Mindful Motherhood guides us through the miraculous and challenging path of becoming a mother. It weaves together scholarship, personal experience, and practical tools, helping us become the most loving, present and joyful parents we can be. As a scholar and mother, I found this book immensely valuable.” —Shauna Shapiro, coauthor, with Linda Carlson, of The Art and Science of Mindfulness
