I presented a Prenatal Yoga class in Avraikheer, Mongolia, while I was visiting Amber (who is in the Peace Corps) this summer.

Mongolians have this superstition about being on the floor in public, so they laid a blanket on the floor so that I could demonstrate Cat/Cow flow.

I then proceeded to demonstrate the rest of the poses standing, with the chair, or with the wall. Talk about a change of plans! Good thing I had come up with a alternate flow for doing prenatal yoga in chairs!

Now they want me to prepare a handout, so that they can take it at home and practice at home. Amber and I are working on that information, and it will be translated into Mongolian.

I had a midwife there also, and she was supplementing the things I was trying to say, for poses that you do during labor, with her expertise too. Great presentation!

Back in December, when the rest of the family was visiting grandparents in Indiana, it was decided that we’d do an “Amber Day”. Basically a photo shoot of some of the harsh realities, of Peace Corps life in Mongolia.

Head Gear for the coldness of Mongolia.

Now, when I go, I probably won’t have to endure the scarves, in the 100 degree heat, but maybe I should bring my buff head gear to protect the back of my neck from sunburn, or the occasional sand storm!
