I hear it time and time again from new moms.
“I don’t have time to meditate.” I get it. I’ve been there. Thrice. Of course it’s amazing if you can “make time” for your practice, but there are ways to get creative and sneak meditation in here and there throughout your day.
Here are my top ten mom hacks to experience a meditative mind each and every day. Have something to add to the list? Comment below so we can all benefit!
If you read this far and you’re rolling your eyes because you’ve tried meditation before and found it boring, or if you’re interested in meditation but you have no idea where to start, I want to tell you about Kundalini Meditation as taught by Yogi Bhajan. This, my friends, is where the magic is. Kundalini meditation is where it's at, and it works it's magic in as little as three minutes. It’s perfect for householders (like parents with small children) and it works quickly, directly, and powerfully to shift your consciousness in a big way. There are different meditations to meet your various needs, and that’s what I love the most. In my Peace for Postpartum online meditation course, I’ve compiled the very best meditations for overcoming the unfortunately common postpartum challenges like moodiness, depression, anxiety, rage, birth trauma, and insomnia all into one easy to navigate online platform. The course contains over 20 meditations, my favorites collected over 10 years of working with moms, and has received rave reviews from participants.
What an honor to be the very first guest speaker on The Motherhood Bozeman’s new podcast series! A few months ago, I sat down with Jazmin Price, Certified Professional Midwife and founder of The Motherhood Bozeman to talk about finding balance for motherhood through meditation. In this episode, I speak about my work with mothers, give some practical meditation tips and advice, share a story about one of my children using meditation to manage his own emotions, and speak about my upcoming online meditation course for women with postpartum mood and anxiety disorders.
Over the past 9 months, I’ve been studying Hatha Yoga with local teacher Nancy Ruby in her YogaMotion teacher training. It’s been an incredible journey of transformation infused with love and joy. Here I am accepting my certificate at our teacher training graduation ceremony last night. I look forward to sharing BOTH Kundalini and Hatha Yoga with our sweet community! Namaste!
