Meditation for Moms

4-Week Course to bring stillness to your busy life

This course is designed for busy moms (or moms-to-be) who want to find stillness through a meditation practice at home. Over the course of 4 weeks, you will learn the basics of meditation and the tools you need to stay calm and focused during the ups & downs of parenthood.

What you’ll learn:

  • A variety of meditations and breathing techniques
  • The ways in which meditation affects “happy” brain chemicals
  • How the brain’s Default Mode Network can affect your patterns of thinking
  • How to begin – and stick with – a home meditation practice
  • Stretches and propping tips to help you sit comfortably in meditation
  • Tips on expanding your meditation ritual: practicing outside the home, childbirth, involving children in meditation, etc.

You will receive:

  • A guided yoga sequence to prepare your body for meditation
  • Eight meditation recordings to practice on your own (CD/MP3)
  • Lots of information on meditation and the “happy” brain chemicals: dopamine, endorphin, serotonin, and oxytocin, as well as the Default Mode Network
  • Weekly practices designed to help you reduce stress and stay calm
  • Tools to help you keep your home meditation practice going

What we’ll do in class:

  • Share experiences and information to learn together
  • Check in with our breath through breathing exercises (pranayama)
  • Stretch our bodies through yoga
  • Relax in supported, luxurious restorative yoga poses
  • Practice meditation – starting small and working our way up
  • Support each other as mothers in our journey of parenthood and self-care
