Being a new parent is a wonderful, though often stressful life transition – which may lead to difficulties in mood, anxiety and relationships.
Learning to become mindful can help you reduce emotional stress and also connect more fully with your infant or toddler. Mindfulness has been shown to foster infant attachment bonds and stronger relationships.
In this program we will be practicing mindfulness together with your infant through various forms of brief meditations and gentle yoga. These can be practiced at home to increase bonding with your infant and decrease stress levels. Pregnant couples can also participate in adapted exercises.
This program is suitable for parents and expectant parents. Everyone is welcome.
Fees: $250 Those with extended health insurance may be covered for some or all of this cost under psychological services.
