Research shows that stress in mothers before, during, and after pregnancy has a tangible and long-lasting effect on children. Join us for this topic-specific workshop addressing the unique stress women experience during the childbearing years and learn how The Resilience Toolkit can help you feel calmer and more able to meet the challenges of pregnancy, birth, and early motherhood.
The Resilience Toolkit is a suite of mindfulness and movement tools that engage the body’s innate rebalancing process—providing an immediate experience of relaxation. Develop a self-care practice that benefits not only mom but baby and family as well.
In this workshop, you will:
— Begin to develop an embodied awareness of personal stress and relaxation physiology.
— Cultivate strategies to regulate persistent, inappropriate, and/or distressing stress symptoms.
— Start a regular practice of The Resilience Toolkit to build internal resources and external resilience over time.
The exercises work for all body types, are easily adaptable, and are safe for pregnancy and post-partum. Once you’ve learned the practices in The Resilience Toolkit, you can practice them independently, at your convenience. Empower your body to heal itself, and open up to a greater sense of joy and wholeness.
