Go Slow Mama 4-week session. For individuals or groups. Inquire to set up a private session.
a workshop incorporating baby massage, meditation, writing and community connection…
The series explores creativity as a way to navigate the early days of motherhood, providing a slower and deeper way to learn the art of baby massage, devoting special attention to self-care and taking time to find your voice.
Using journaling and simple meditation exercises, we will look at self-care and general well-being on the motherhood trip. The sessions are about getting grounded and finding your own voice and path in a supportive atmosphere free of judgement and ‘advice giving’.
This class will get you set up to start massaging your baby with confidence. But, if you want further instruction, you can book a private session or set up your own group session. This session is easier if your baby is pre-crawling.
Massage is a wonderful way to connect and bond with your baby. This session will help you develop a routine of healing touch that will be at your fingertips for years to come. I guide participants through a full-body ‘oiling’ while you massage your baby. Learn strokes and techniques that will help relax your baby as well as specific techniques to alleviate digestive discomfort. This session is also about developing confidence with your hands and relaxing in the midst of the unknown.
