Isha Thaimai is an initiative specially designed for pregnant mothers to bring more awareness about their pregnancy and teach them how to keep their body, mind, and emotion in a pleasant way, in order to experience a joyful pregnancy. This program will also be a platform for them to learn about how to deliver a healthy baby and the best ways to take care of the child.
During pregnancy, it is very important that the body, mind, and heart are kept in a pleasant state.
In this culture there has been an elaborate system as to how to take care of a pregnant woman – a whole protected system. Once a woman became pregnant she was taken care of like a precious jewel. This was done because the kind of impressions she puts into herself also goes into the child. If she is in such a pleasant state, she will provide the best possible situation for child to flourish.

I had a problem-free pregnancy and child birth. Contrary to the belief that the first delivery is rebirth, my pregnancy was natural and easy. Unlike other women who had been admitted for delivery, I did not vocalize my pain, but with a smile I went through the entire process with awareness and consciousness. I worship the new life that gave me such a tremendous experience. Now my son is growing up with a deep sense of understanding and acceptance.
I had been practicing yoga for a period of three years before marriage. As soon as I found out that I have conceived, I contacted Isha Yoga Center and enquired about the necessary changes that I had to incorporate in my yoga practice. All these small changes that I incorporated during the past 9 months have helped me during child birth.
