By
Felicia M. Tomasko

Prenatal and Postpartum Yoga for Mother and Child.

Pregnant women are adapting their yoga practices for nine months, and yoga neophytes are finding yoga, often for the first time, while pregnant. Doctors and midwives are recommending classes, which are even appearing at medical centers. To no one's surprise, women in prenatal yoga classes are convinced that yoga is the track to a healthy pregnancy, healthy birthing process and healthy baby.

WORKSHOP REPORT:
Ayurveda is Healthy in the U.S.
But its leading Association may be asleep. 
       
By Julie Deife
Ayurveda is expanding in the U.S. You wouldn’t know it from the recent NAMA Conference in Las Vegas. The Third Annual National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA) conference in October raised important questions about the status of Ayurveda today, more questions actually than answers.

RESEARCH BRIEF:
Research Review: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Childhood is a time of daydreaming, playing and exploring the world. Within this field of play, there can sometimes be a fine line between daydreaming and chronic inattention, playfulness and hyperactivity. For the children who struggle with the condition identified as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD, formerly known as attention deficit disorder, or ADD), going to school, building social relationships and developing study skills can be challenging.

Sitting Down with :
Dr. John Hagelin:
By Bob Belinoff


Dr. Hagelin is a quantum physicist, educator, author and public policy expert. He is responsible for the development of a highly successful grand unified field theory based on the Superstring.   His scientific contributions in the fields of electroweak unification, grand unification, super-symmetry and cosmology included some of the most cited references in the physical sciences.  Dr. Hagelin received his Ph.D. from Harvard University.  He is currently Director of the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy and Professor of Physics at Maharishi University of Management.    A compact halfback of smiling human energy, Dr. Hagelin speaks in fully formed sentences, paragraphs and even pages. He has a clean settled look, for a quantum physicist, an engaging ever-present smile.   We talked outside the ballroom at the USC Radisson across the street from where he and David Lynch had presented a program the night before on Creativity and the Brain.
