A little birdie told me that some of you are unhappy
that I seem to have special things happening only at
our Greentree Village location in Burnaby.
It's not that I favor them, it's because it's the only
location that I'm not governed by the city about
what I can offer.
So, I've been wracking my brain trying to figure out
how I can offer something special to everyone, and allow students
from all locations to participate.
And I think I've got it!
If you're reading this email, it's because you've
either participated in one or more of our classes,
or have requested information from us about our
classes. And I want to thank you for that. Therefore, if you meet the entrance
qualification of our Be Your Best Contest, you can enter!

Uttanasana, Standing Forward

to enter them deeply. Enlightenment does not
necessarily occur when the head reaches the legs, so
there is no need to get it there soon, if ever. The
realization of yoga is to be fully conscious,

Omega 3's Reduce Anxiety, Inflammation
Fish oil from salmon and other cold-water species is
a natural source of omega-3 fatty acids, and
according to a new study, can help reduce both
inflammation and anxiety. A research team from Ohio
State University reported that daily doses of
omega-3 supplements, providing about four to
five times the amount of fish oil found in a daily
serving of salmon, reduced anxiety among a group of
medical students. Click

Baby Sign Language
by Jacqueline Bodar
be better than a young child that hasn’t developed
language skills yet being able to communicate with
their parents? Today many children can do just that
because their parents are teaching them sign
language. Teaching sign language to babies not only
has lasting benefits but has now caught on across
the country and has become the innovative way that
parents are working to help their child get ahead.
“Although signing with babies has been around for
over 20 years, in the past couple of years interest
has steadily grown,” explains Jenny Hodges, a
certified district manager for Baby Signs® (www.babysigns.com),
a national company that offers workshops and classes
on teaching babies sign language. Teaching sign
language to babies gives parents and children the
ability to be able to communicate before their
language skills have even been developed.
Most programs that are offered for teaching sign
language use everyday terms that are useful and
relate to a babies life. Hodges explains that the
most common first terms that are usually taught
include milk, more, eat and words that are related
to meals, bedtime and bathing. Other common first
words for younger babies include cat, dog, baby,
more, mommy and daddy. Once the baby is a bit older
then other words are introduced like phone, play,
colors, rain and car. There is no set amount of
words you need to teach your child, you could pick
and choose a few common words or work to expand
their signing vocabulary.
Most of the words taught in baby sign language
programs have been adapted from the American Sign
Language system. Other families choose to make up
their own signs for individual items they routinely
use around the house. The practice of signing gives
babies the opportunity to label objects, express
their needs and to explain how they are feeling.
Children also get the chance to be a part of
choosing the direction and focus of what they want
to do and what they want to talk about.
Benefits of Signing
Young children often throw temper tantrums as a
result of feeling frustrated because they are not
able to verbally express themselves. Learning sign
language as a baby is believed to help cut down on
some of those tantrums that toddlers experience
because they have a way to communicate. As if just
being able to cut down on those toddler temper
tantrums wasn’t motivation enough to send parents
running to find the closest baby signing program,
there are many more benefits beyond that. Research
has shown that teaching them sign language
stimulates intellectual development.
"There is a significant percentage of the children
who speak earlier when their parents sign with
them,” explains Nancy Cadjan, president of Sign
Babies (www.signbabies.com). “And even those who
speak at a normal rate have an easier time learning
language and an increased vocabulary when they do
When babies have this ability to communicate to have
their needs met it is also believed to increase
their self esteem and confidence level and many
believe that it strengthens the bond between the
parent and child. Learning sign language as a baby
also provides a foundation for early literacy.
"Every baby is different and will sign when they are
ready,” explains Hodges. Usually within a couple of
months you should see results from your teaching
efforts. Keep in mind that the older the baby the
faster they catch on to the signs. The recommended
age to start teaching your baby sign language is
usually around eight months, although some people do
get started around six months. Even if your baby is
a year old or more it’s not too late to start
teaching them sign language.
If you would like to teach your baby sign language
you have a variety of ways that you can get started.
There are books, videos and Web sites that offer a
plethora of information on how to get started and
links to online signing dictionaries that show you
how to sign. “You can take a class from a certified
infant sign language instructor or you can learn to
do this on your own,” says Cadjan. “Taking from an
instructor is better because it gives you a chance
to see how the signs are made.”
