New twist on 'finding your center'

Many of you have probably done yoga, or know someone who has. But now there's a new twist on "finding your center." Mary Callaghan took yoga when she was pregnant. She said, "I did pre-natal yoga at the request of my doctor to reduce some stress and some tension in my back and to kind of just bond with the baby before he got here." Callaghan has continued taking the classes since giving birth. "We just wanted a chance once a week to get out of the house and bond with each other and kind of de-stress." "Here we can just be with each other and experience new things and I really like that," Callaghan said. Mary isn't the only one who seems to enjoy yoga. "When we're at home and he's crying we'll do a yoga move and he'll go 'hee, hee' and when we come here he gets excited and he laughs so I think he likes it," Callaghan said. Elisha Simpson opened laughing hearts yoga to help families connect and open children's imaginations. Simpson said, "They're just kind of missing that idea of going back to nature, and having fun and realizing that there's just so much that they're missing that are simple pleasures." These simple pleasures are exactly what Callaghan and her son deejay look forward to. "It's just a half an hour once a week in the morning and it's just exactly what you need just to bond with that baby," Callaghan said. Callaghan while other moms talk about needing something to stop their baby's crying yoga has taught her and her son DJ ways to relax and take a deep breath.
