ARE YOU UNINSURED?

To meet the health insurance needs of our community, Holy Cross Hospital is currently enrolling for Centennial Care and the Health Exchange. The Open Enrollment Period is open now, but ends on February 15, 2015.

Medicaid has changed and is now called Centennial Care in New Mexico. There are also new eligibility rules that took effect in 2013. Even if you were denied Medicaid in the past, you may be eligible under the new eligibility rules. There is no deadline to enroll in Medicaid. However, under the Affordable Care Act, every New Mexican is required to have health coverage, so it is important to determine if you qualify for Medicaid. Medicaid is credible coverage and does not require a monthly payment.

Welcome to Pregnancy Yoga with Jiwan Shakti!

The Pregnancy Yoga Course is based on the teachings of Yogi Bhajan as taught in the Conscious Pregnancy Teacher Training. The flow of Yoga exercises in each class, is called a Kriya: a specific set of exercises aimed for a specific effect or result. Each class will also include a meditation, and integrate breath work into both the kriya and the meditation.

As support to The Birth Center and Women’s Health Institute, the Pregnancy Yoga classes are offered to all pregnant women. It is a 20 week course that will then cycle again, so you can begin at any time. The course has two different classes. The first class is a rotation of exercises for variety of themes, and the second is the same kriya for just about six weeks.

You can attend as much or as little as you feel you can manage. You can drop in on either at any time.

Pregnancy Yoga : 20 Week Flow
Begins January 19
Monday, 10:30-11:30am
Common Room in the Birth Center
1331 Maestas Rd

Classes are by donation ($5 - $10 suggested).
No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

This begins with the first couple weeks as an Introduction to Pregnancy Yoga. As the weeks progress new Kriyas will be introduced that focus on selected topics in order of the needs of the group. These include:

  • Strengthening the Lungs
  • The Pelvic Floor
  • Healthy Bowels and Stomach
  • Balancing the Glandular System
  • Toning the Lymphatic System
  • Relaxation and Releasing Fear

Intermittent focus on:

  • Pregnancy Maintenance
  • Total Balance
  • Keep Up Spirit!

Please come a few minutes early to get settled and ready for class. If you can, bring a mat or blanket, water bottle and a shawl if you like to be cozy. There are some things available if you find yourself without. Classes are by donation ($5 - $10 suggested). No one will be turned away for lack of funds. All invited.

Testimonials

D'nielle Flores Patient Testimonial

I live in Dixon and am just so glad I went to Taos to have my baby! The entire Labor and Delivery staff was excellent and my experience was peaceful.

Jackie Kolbenschlag Patient Testimonial

"I didn’t even realize how low my energy was, after six years of having fibroids. It gradually just got worse and worse, so I just didn’t realize how bad it was until after the surgery – and how great I felt then."
