We, at Holistic Paathshala, provide you with training and guidance involving pre recorded videos and 21 days Dinacharya routine; a 30 week paathshala program. In this program, we focus on a holistic approach towards pregnancy that considers not only the body but also the mind and spirit, to help women enjoy a pregnancy that is healthy in all ways.
While the holistic approach helps the ‘to-be parent’ in the physical aspects, it is not restricted to just that. It is more than that; it is about building a bond with the baby inside.
We, in the Holistic Paathshala, strive to build the child through activities based on the principles of our Montessori school, being
This concept of Paathshala is going to imbibe an ancient tradition in the area of learnings about life. The Gurukul system was a residential schooling system in ancient times where students were thought to live a cultured and disciplined life along with the various subjects. The Guru (Teacher), as well as the student (Shisya), used to reside in the same place until the education was over. Gurukuls were primarily concerned with imparting knowledge to students in a natural setting where the shisyas lived in fraternity, humanism, love, and discipline with one another.
We insist on a similar teaching arrangement in our Holistic Paathshala, where the parents are the Guru and the pupils are the shisyas in the womb. The shisya is titled ‘Bud-ee,’ which means a growing bud who is your buddy, which adds a touch of modernism to this paathshala (best friend). Personality development, moral consciousness formation, and ethical training are all present in this set of curriculum. The main focus of this paathshala is on the institutional concept of holistic learning for Bud-ees, devoting time to physical training as well as the development of other abilities like as spiritual training that can help the kid in the womb to become a better human being. The modern-day educationalist Paathshala has taken a backward look and realized that there are many teaching approaches from the Gurukul system that can be inculcated in the present-day educational system. We have a modern-day base of a curriculum and a set routine along with an ancient spark of holistic culture and imbibing values and cultures.
Apart from the pre-recorded sessions on Holistic Pregnancy, we also have a 21-day Dinacharya routine that focuses on the following 21 activities which are briefed about:
Consider meditation to be some peaceful time to connect and breathe, as well as to be mindful of passing ideas and clear the mind. It’s about discovering inner peace, learning to let go, and connecting with yourself through breath and mental attention. Meditation helps in the improved sleep cycle and coping up with anxiety/stress by connecting to your changing body. It gives you a calmer mind, less tension, and helps in better labour preparation. Postpartum depression is less likely to occur.
2. Yoga/nature walk:
Prenatal yoga is a form of yoga that is specifically tailored for pregnant women. Yoga is meant to bring emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual elements into harmony. Prenatal yoga focuses on calming the body and focusing on safe practices.
Pranayama can be defined in a variety of ways. Pranayama is a type of yogic breathing that involves the use of specific breathing methods to regulate the flow and circulation of life currents throughout the body. Others say it teaches them how to breathe and enhances their oxygen circulation. Pranayama is a technique for reducing negative energy, relaxing, and assisting the body in the release of oxytocin, which helps to make labour easier and more comfortable. Additionally, it aids with pain management by calming the body.
4. Setting intention for the day:
This is a spiritual practice for balancing your mental health in which you set a little daily objective for yourself. Assume you become enraged very quickly. Because you don’t want to do that, you establish a goal for yourself to not get upset during the day, no matter what occurs. As a result, we at Holistic Paathshala assist you in identifying your flaws and working to overcome them in order to become a better human being and the best Guru possible.
5. Visualization chart / Dream Meditation:
We’re discussing a scientific approach to pregnancy that incorporates the subconscious mind. Marianne Williamson advises ‘Visualize the most magnificent existence imaginable to you, close your eyes and focus on it. Then try to keep the vision for as long as possible. Place the vision in God’s hands and call it a day.’ Similarly, if you picture the type of child you want, you will have it. We will talk about it in detail during the paathshala.
6. Mindful eating:
One significant perspective that people neglect is the means by which to eat, what to eat and when to eat. Our bodies have been structured in such a way that 80% of the digestion needs to occur in the mouth and 20% occurs in the stomach. What’s more? We do the inverse! In the paathshala, we advise you on how and what to eat and how charged water is the best for your health during these times.
7. Mandela art / Painting / any other art:
Mandela art is a type of meditation that is both creative and spiritual. It generates positive energy in you and your child, allowing you and your child to live a more vivid existence via imaginative and colourful designs. It aids with concentration and keeps you calm and creative. We’ve set aside some time for Mandela art, and it’ll be a lot of fun.
8. Gayatri mantra:
It is very important on how mothers keep their thoughts and actions during pregnancy. The Gayathri Mantra is the mother of the Vedas. It invokes the faculty of intellect and intelligence. In fact, in ancient India children below the age of 7 years were initiated to chant the Gayatri Mantra making them to grow into very bright beings. In this paathshala, we train you the correct way of chanting Gayathri Mantra and will help you nurture a nature of genius and spiritual qualities in your child.
9. Determining emotions:
Pregnancy brings a wide range of emotions, not all of which are positive. You are not alone if you are concerned. Worry is frequent, especially in the first trimester of a woman’s pregnancy. It’s critical to address mental health issues when pregnant. We assure you to make you comfortable during your paathshaala and start helping you in determining your emotions in the right way.
10. Classical music/rhymes:
Even in the early stages of pregnancy, classical music can help with memory retention. Some kids have even shown preferences for music and songs that their mother has played or sung to them while still in the womb; unborn babies acquire a fondness or taste for the music they have heard. The rhyming lines and lullabies develop a sense of voice modulation from an early stage. He also becomes alert and responds to it. We sing along with rhymes for the baby in the womb during the paathshala, which helps them connect with you.
Affirmations, when repeated frequently, can help women transform negative feelings about their pregnancy into positive ones. Affirmations can assist the Gurus of this paathshala to manage their concerns and doubts, allowing them to experience a more relaxed and pleasurable nine months.
12. Journaling / Gratitude:
In difficult circumstances, writing out your emotions might help you feel better. Journaling is also a terrific method to remember how you felt when you found out you were pregnant and how the rest of the months went. We encourage you to write here in the paathshala to capture your favourite moments and routine during your pregnancy and to help you feel calmer during stressful periods.
13. Healthy Eating:
Our brains function best when we eat a nutritious and balanced diet. Similarly, Good nutrition during pregnancy can help ensure that your baby gets the best start possible. The food that you eat also sets your emotions. To have the right frame of mind, select food accordingly. Shift from tongue conscious food to health-conscious food. It is traditionally believed that a child’s mental and behavioural development starts as soon as he is conceived. According to Garbha sanskar, your baby is able to sense and respond to outside influences. Hence, your mental state of mind will depend upon the food you eat, and eventually, it will affect the baby.
14. Experiences I Can process:
This is an intriguing game in which you reflect on and manage your feelings and experiences throughout each day of your wonderful adventure. We’ll make adequate activity schedules in the paathshala and explain why and how they’re important.
15. Waking up, Getting up:
Starting with the very first activity of our day, i.e., waking up. If you are a person who wants to wake up at 6 in the morning but snoozes the alarm to sleep for a little more while, you need to conquer your first failure in order to be able to shun the first seed of procrastination in you! Likewise, we try to help you in tightening your laces and stepping forward in the journey, in many other ways.
16. Say & Do:
This is the most crucial exercise for connecting and bonding with the unborn kid. When you speak aloud to the baby about whatever you’re doing or about to do, it feels as if you’re talking to it, and the baby begins to hear you. It forces you to maintain your promises about the goals you set, and it has a slew of additional advantages that will be explored in class.
17. Bonding with baby:
The very purpose of Holistic approach and the form of Gurukul system of paathshala is to bond with the baby. The current demand is to ensure that teachers and students have a positive relationship and mutual respect. This is because when children feel safe and trust their caregivers, they are more likely to imitate them. This was present in the Gurukul system which can be inculcated today through the use of activities, training workshops to bond with the students.
18. Prenatal Memory:
19. Being with nature/sunbathing:
Walking in nature barefoot and feeling the warmth of nature is probably one of the best feelings in the world. In Holistic Paathshala, we try to take you close to nature by listing down the benefits Sunbathing can help to boost immunity and energy as it is an aid to Vitamin D production. It helps in keeping the hormones healthy and lowers cholesterol keeping you fit.
20. Power of words:
Words contain energy and power, and they have the potential to help, heal, hinder, injure, harm, humiliate, and humble people. Consider the influence we can have and the difference we can make. The correct words may make or break a situation. We define the power of words and hence we have healthy activities for you to understand and support the same.
21. Story reading for the womb child:
A baby starts hearing sounds between weeks 23 and 27 Reading a good story to your baby while he is still in the womb can benefit him. It stimulates emotions in the baby and helps him react to different stimuli. Reading daily will help him recognise your voice. The way you read out a story also matters. Hence, we will all do it together and train you in the best way possible so that your baby benefits the most.
The Gurukul system can be used to implement a value-based system that focuses on a child’s individuality so that they can thrive in their chosen field. This will also help to develop a decent character that is free of harsh competition and high-stress levels. The Gurukul method emphasised practical knowledge that prepared children for success in all aspects of life. In today’s world, this can be accomplished through combining academics with extracurricular activities, as well as teaching mindfulness and spiritual awareness to help your bud-ee become better individuals.
