meditation

Meditation classes are available for both during pregnancy, and for mothers at any stage of their mothering journey. Learn practical skills to calm the mind and relax the body, and enjoy some time to spend with yourself and other mothers.

 

It’s time to stop making excuses as to why you can’t meditate, and instead start enjoying the benefits!

it’s time for you

We spend so much time, as mothers, taking care of everybody else. And we LOVE doing that, but sometimes we forget to (or don’t) make time for ourselves.

Meditation is a great way to create space and time for yourself, while also giving you tools and strategies for reducing stress and anxiety, settling a busy or overwhelmed mind, and finding a sense of peace and balance.

Meditation for Pregnancy classes are designed for women in all stages of pregnancy. Suitable for those with or without prior meditation experience, classes aim to provide you with practical skills to calm the mind, and relax the body. By providing you with techniques that you can incorporate into your day-to-day life, you may find that you are more able to focus on the excitement and joy of what awaits!

Classes involve both meditation/mindfulness practices, and movement to keep both your mind and body feeling relaxed in the lead up to birth.

“The experiences that will begin to fire and wire your baby’s brain start in your womb, with the physical sensations that provide the earliest learnings. These include being physically supported by the womb and amniotic fluid, being kept warm by your body warmth, being gently rocked as you walk, being exposed to different tastes from your diet via the amniotic fluid, hearing your voice and voices of other family members, and feeling calm and settled when you are calm and settled”

mama meditation

Mama Meditation classes are designed for all mothers, no matter where they are on their mothering journey. Suitable for those with or without prior meditation experience, classes aim to provide you with practical skills to calm the mind, and relax the body.

Each week we will introduce tools and strategies for reducing stress and anxiety, settling a busy or overwhelmed mind, and finding a sense of peace and balance. 

    “We can feel overwhelmed by our schedules, our responsibilities, and our roles at times, even when everything we are doing is important, even when we have chosen to do them all. We live immersed in a world of constant doing. Rarely are we in touch with who is doing the doing—or, put otherwise, with the world of being. To get back in touch with being is not that difficult. We only need to remind ourselves to be mindful. Moments of mindfulness are moments of peace and stillness, even in the midst of activity”

    ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn

    I just had a really great birthing experience after taking Elyse’s pregnancy meditation classes. It was my third child and the difference between the births was amazing! I can honestly say that I loved my labor this time, while my other two were very traumatic. I could not recommend Elyse more!!
