The Kaia Yoga Complete Wellness Centers, the fastest growing whole-living centers in Connecticut, have added robust prenatal, birth and family programming to their Westport Family Center to support the community every step of the way, from preconception to birth, infant care to older generations.

The new Family Center programming will touch on all aspects of the family and will provide private and group classes for Lamaze, HypnoBirthing, breastfeeding, individual lactation consultations, support and services for C-section or breech deliveries, birth trauma, and a wide variety of parenting classes from sleep issues to parenting multiples.

In addition to a comprehensive yoga program for all ages and stages of life, each Kaia Yoga center offers a full range of services to support families ranging from preconception, pre- and post-natal, pediatric therapies and family living and nutrition.

Spring 2011 programs will include a variety of pediatric workshops hosted by Kaia Yoga and presented by the centers’ community of holistic practitioners who work to educate and support families in their seemingly endless choices in care and treatment. Topics will include: Naturopathic, Homeopathic, Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Also, chiropractic care, vaccinations, ear infections, nutrition through all stages, allergies and asthma and much more. Individual treatment sessions are also available by appointment.

The new programming is in line with the Kaia Yoga founding concept that raising a family is a community effort. “Our goal is to offer a space for connection, education and support,” said Gina Norman, the founder and co-director of the centers.

The 9,000 sq. ft., 2-level Kaia Yoga Complete Wellness Center in Westport, which opened in June 2010, also includes a hot yoga studio, the only Iyengar rope wall in Fairfield County, an on-site chiropractor, a midwife, a family playroom, a family therapist, organic juice bar and café.

2011 Family Programming at Kaia Yoga Complete Wellness Centers:

Free Community Parent Discussion Groups and Educational Seminars
All groups are hosted twice a month at the Westport center and facilitated by Kaia Yoga Instructors who are also parents.

Pure Expecting - For prenatal families; Sundays 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Pure Beginnings - For birth to age two; Wednesday 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Each month members the Kaia Yoga Wellness Community will offer educational seminars for each parenting group specifically on a variety of hot topics in their respective fields. Groups meet in a comfortable, relaxed and supportive setting and are encouraged to swap stories, ask question and make new friends.

The Little Sprouts Center:
A comprehensive program for kids based on the principals of yoga. Classes for all age groups give children the ability to learn how to center and calm themselves in all situations and inspire a life long commitment to good health and practice.

Supervised Playroom:
A Supervised Playroom offers a safe and inviting space for children ages six weeks through six years to rest or play while mom or dad enjoys time to develop their own practice. The playroom is available upon request and as it has become extremely popular with our Kaia Yoga parents calling in advance is recommended to reserve space.

Family Yoga:
On the second Saturday of every month at both Kaia’s Greenwich and Westport locations the studios offer “Family Yoga,” which is a the perfect way to spend quality time together. Practicing together is not only a great deal of fun it is also designed to foster communication and teamwork while improving self-confidence, increasing flexibility and strength and also teaching valuable relaxation and breathing techniques.
