Mindfulness for the Family Years

CLICK HERE to REGISTER for this event.

Mindfulness is described as maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and surrounding environment in a non-judgemental manner. How might you find that practice helpful in labor?

When practiced for an average of six weeks-- the techniques learned in this class have the ability to reduce anxiety & stress, increase connection in your family, improve child outcomes, reduce pain during labor, contribute to a healthy pregnancy and enhance your immunity. Skeptical? Let me drop some science on you.

In this class we will explore different mindfulness techniques that feel approachable to your individual learning style and level of comfort:

  • As the birthing person, you will explore how to implement the Confidence > Relaxation > Pleasure Cycle in order to replace the Fear > Tension > Pain Cycle.
  • As the support person you will explore how to implement the same techniques-- providing calm for yourself and your partner.
  • Learn how to quench the "Fight/Flight reflexes" with breathing, grounding techniques, visualization, phsyical touch, acupressure, aromatherapy and guided meditation.
  • Learn how to create a Safe Space-- that can be acessed in any circumstance to provide a stabilizing support.

This class includes a mix of lecture, discussion, media, movement and relaxation techniques. It is ideal for anyone who is either birthing or supporting the labor of a loved one. Families who tend to experience anxiety or depression have found this class particularly helpful.

Cost: $45 for community families AND $35 for Brave Birth families.

Mindfulness for the Family Years

CLICK HERE to REGISTER for this event.

Mindfulness is described as maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and surrounding environment in a non-judgemental manner. How might you find that practice helpful in labor?

When practiced for an average of six weeks-- the techniques learned in this class have the ability to reduce anxiety & stress, increase connection in your family, improve child outcomes, reduce pain during labor, contribute to a healthy pregnancy and enhance your immunity. Skeptical? Let me drop some science on you.

In this class we will explore different mindfulness techniques that feel approachable to your individual learning style and level of comfort:

  • As the birthing person, you will explore how to implement the Confidence > Relaxation > Pleasure Cycle in order to replace the Fear > Tension > Pain Cycle.
  • As the support person you will explore how to implement the same techniques-- providing calm for yourself and your partner.
  • Learn how to quench the "Fight/Flight reflexes" with breathing, grounding techniques, visualization, phsyical touch, acupressure, aromatherapy and guided meditation.
  • Learn how to create a Safe Space-- that can be acessed in any circumstance to provide a stabilizing support.

This class includes a mix of lecture, discussion, media, movement and relaxation techniques. It is ideal for anyone who is either birthing or supporting the labor of a loved one. Families who tend to experience anxiety or depression have found this class particularly helpful.

Cost: $45 for community families AND $35 for Brave Birth families.

Mindfulness for Pregnancy & Beyond

Pregnancy, labor, birth AND parenting are equal parts mental, physical and emotional energy.  Learn to connect all three together in this class to better support yourself and your family.  This class explores how to implement the Confidence > Relaxation > Pleasure Cycle in order to replace the Fear > Tension > Pain Cycle.   

Learn how to quench the "Fight/Flight reflexes" with breathing and relaxation techniques. Allow the concerned part of your mind that causes unnecessary worry-- to be quieted with affirmations that will allow you to gain confidence in your abilities to cope.  

This class includes a mix of lecture, discussion, media, movement and relaxation techniques.  

Cost: $45 for community families AND $35 for Brave Birth families.
