Raising Families with the Habits of Ayurveda

Raising Families with the Habits of Ayurveda

In this Changemaker Challenge Career Clarity Session, Carly Banks chats with fellow yoga health coach Tania Milliken about raising families with habits of Body Thrive. Tania spent her life serving others. As mom to eight children, including two with special needs, Tania's focus has been outward, nurturing others at the expense of her own self-care. The stress of raising children with complications brought her to a place of overwhelm. Coping came in the form of snacking and a nightly glass of wine (or two), which only exacerbated things. Tania was drawn to Ayurveda when she started researching natural ways to treat her daughter’s ADHD. When she enrolled in the Living Ayurveda course, it forced her to take an honest look at how she was living and coping. She implemented positive shifts in her family's daily routine, and the results were profound. In continuing with the habits of Body Thrive, she's found the ease she so sorely needed in order to continue to support her family. After Living Ayurveda, Tania enrolled in Yoga Health Coaching so that she could help other moms like her. Now through YHC, she offers relief and flow to the community of brave parents and caregivers that support the growth of children with additional needs.

 

What you’ll get out of tuning in:

  • How the habits of Body Thrive are transformational for families.
  • How Ayurveda can help kids with special needs.
  • How Yoga Health Coaching is adaptable to segments of the population you are already in and working with.

Show Highlights:

  • 2:20 – Tania has taken the 10 habits program to a niche segment of the population that she is a part of: parents and caregivers of children with additional needs. Often those parents and caregivers neglect self care and focus solely on providing care to others. Tania’s mission is to help them put themselves first so that they can show up as their best selves and provide even better care to others.
  • 3:50 – Tania is a foster mom who is raising eight children: six of her own and two adopted children. One of her adopted children has fetal alcohol syndrome and one of her daughters was born with a cleft lip and palate. She spent a lot of time traveling to doctors and children’s hospitals and she found herself suffering from “compassion fatigue.” She was tired, overwhelmed, and, consequently, less patient with her family. Her business was suffering as well. Stress relief came in the form of snacking and nightly glass of wine.
  • 7:15 – When Tania enrolled in the Living Ayurveda course, it forced her to take an honest look at how she was living and coping. Now, even though she is doing more, she doesn’t overextend herself. The result is a sense of ease and the ability to show up more fully for herself and her family.
  • 8:18 – After Living Ayurveda, Tania enrolled in Yoga Health Coaching so that she could help other moms like her.
  • 9:50 – Tania was drawn to Ayurveda when she started researching natural ways to treat her daughter’s ADHD. As a result, she and her family are eating a much healthier diet and her daughter does not require medication to control her ADHD. Instead, her daughter practices yoga, meditation, and self massage.
  • 12:30 – Tania and her husband have 8 children and have fostered nearly 100 through respite work.
  • 13:22 – Carly is also teaching her kids about the habits of Body Thrive. The result is a calmer, healthier family. Both of these women are empowering their families with self care practices.

 

Favorite Quotes:

  • “These habits should be foundational teachings for every person. They are wholly transformative for families.” — Carly Banks
  • “I’ve lived it, so I get it. I know that sometimes we forget to take care of ourselves, and that’s one of things that I see in a lot of the parents I support. They’re always reaching out for their kids . . . . Sometimes we forget to put ourselves first so that we can do the best job we can.” — Tania Milliken
