Yoga provides a wonderful way to foster connection between parents and kids. Our lives are increasingly fast paced, stressful and full of digital distraction. Childhood anxiety is now commonplace. Yoga and mindfulness offer us tools to unwind; to pay compassionate attention and move into our bodies and breath. The conscious act of creating time to be with your child to move, breathe and co-create sends a powerful message that you value your relationship and want to meaningfully connect.
Just before Mother’s Day, I am co-facilitating a Mindful Mother/Daughter Workshop designed for mothers with daughters 10-13 years of age. As girls move into adolescence, it is helpful for mothers to build both a community of support and the skills necessary to navigate this pivotal time. During this workshop, you and your daughter will tune into yourselves and each other, experience movement and breath, explore mindful communication and reflect on how to take away these tools so you can use them in every day life. This workshop will be held in a beautiful serene environment with other like-minded mothers and daughters.
I am a mother of two girls, ages 12 and 14. I am also a dedicated yoga student and teacher. Of all the tools and strategies that I have access to, it is the principles of yoga and mindfulness that I draw upon most to help me skillfully (mostly!) move through this time in my girls’ lives. I rely on yoga to help me pause, breathe, ground and summon compassionate awareness, thereby more mindfully choosing my response to situations.
Join me and my co-facilitator, Martha Johnson (also a mother to an adolescent daughter) for this practical, fun and inspiring workshop. Martha and I have previously offered this workshop with great success. Mothers and daughters leave feeling more relaxed and interconnected. This is touching to witness as a teacher and mother. No yoga experience is required to attend. Whether you are new to yoga or more familiar, this workshop will serve as a springboard to integrating yoga and mindfulness into your daily life.
