Yesterday evening Lindsay and I took part in a prenatal partner yoga workshop that helps connect with your partner doing partner poses while learning techniques to ease childbirth. We did this out of the St. Albert Lotus Soul Gym which is a pretty nice gym from the others I’ve been in.
Now I don’t have any Yoga experience at all, well except for one Hatha class that Lindsay took me to 4 years ago. However that doesn’t matter as no yoga experience is required for this class as the instructor (who needs to be certified in prenatal yoga) walks you though all the poses and helps out if need be. Lindsay has been doing yoga for a long time now and is also a certified Yoga Alliance instructor so anytime I get a chance to do Yoga with her in a less intimidating environment I’m all for it. I was a little bit apprehensive at first because I know how the “no experience necessary” can be. Sometimes it’s a lot harder than they lead on, however this was perfect and really a great way to spend a Saturday evening with my wife.
As I mentioned before the main focus is on connecting with your spouse and they do this through normal poses however they change the pose so that you need to balance with your partner or connect when doing say tree pose, you become one “tree” so to speak. One of the benefits with a lot of the poses is that it helps with stretching and releasing tension in a lot of areas that is brought on while being pregnant. A lot of these poses and stretches can be done in the delivery room while you are preparing to deliver and should help with easing child birth. Lindsay is quite in tune with her body after being in yoga so long and was saying how a lot of what we did she could see how that will help. I’m all for making things easier and more comfortable for her.
They also had some massage components towards the last quarter of the class to help the fathers massage in areas that will be more beneficial for the expecting mothers. Dad’s also got a quick massage as well but not as long as the mothers as to be expected. Then my favourite part of yoga, savasana, which I like to call the nap portion of yoga. Savasana is a basic relaxation pose where we integrate and assimilate what we learned in the class and return to a rejuvenated state.
Overall the whole experience was really cool even though I have no yoga experience. The best part about it all was being able to do it with my partner, my wife, the mother of my child and being able to have a deeper connection with one another through something that my wife loves, yoga.
Today I decided to take the day off and was able to sleep in and just recover from last week. When planning my day out I thought to myself you know we’ve been pretty busy the last month and the condo needs a good cleaning. So I took it upon myself to really clean the condo from top to bottom, almost a spring cleaning. This isn’t something we do every week, we usually do a good clean on the weekend. However like I said we’ve been busy and sometimes we’ve been a bit snippy and grouchy towards each other because of it.
Because I know one of my wife’s love language is “acts of service” I decided to make part of my day cleaning up the condo. Not because I need brownie points, but because I know my wife loves when I do this and it makes her happy. Its one way that I can really give back and serve my partner and really show that I know her and what she likes.
So while there are many things that I do for my wife, I know this is one of the big ones that really does make her feel good. I would never have known that until she read this book. I would have kept doing other things to make her happy but never know exactly what did. I think she was also quite surprised when she read this book.
This is just one of the many ways of how we continually work on our relationship and one of the key things that World Wide Dreambuilders teaches. We are in an amazing business and for a business such as this that cares so much about family life is really really awesome. Try finding that in your 9-5 job!
