Self Regulation is Your Parenting Superpower
Wednesday, April 12 @ 12pm via Zoom
When our children act out, withdraw, or struggle with their emotions, it can feel overwhelming for a parent. We wonder what to DO, but our greatest parenting superpower is less about doing and more about BEING!
Learning to regulate our own nervous system is an essential way to support our kids' emotional resilience.
During this mindful movement workshop, you'll learn simple and effective steps to work with your nervous system to support your emotional well-being and that of your children and family.
No yoga experience or equipment required. Just bring a chair!
Speaker: Jacqueline Vlietstra, Certified Yoga Therapist, Yoga for Resilience
