Mom in Balance: Mindfully Navigating Motherhood

When: Monday, February 4th – 09.30-11.30

Where: Roppongi

What: Mom in Balance Tokyo and Jodi Harris from World Tree Coaching invite you for a collaborative morning workshop on “Mindfully Navigating Motherhood” on Monday, February 4th from 09.30-11.30. Life is incredibly hectic and it can feel like stillness only exists in a fantasy. For many of us we’ve lost the notion that we could ever catch our breath, even for a minute. But stillness may be less fleeting than you think. Stillness of the mind can come even in the most hectic of moments – in small, accessible ways throughout your day.

Join them to learn strategies on how to navigate mindful through all stages of motherhood with physical and mental exercises to take away. Coach and mindfulness teacher Jodi Harris will show you simple, practical ways to find stillness no matter where life takes you, while Julie Mangen and Tanja Kinnen from Mom in Balance Tokyo will explain about the benefits of incorporating a workout routine in your daily life.

Registration is mandatory to secure your spot for this workshop!

Cost: 2500 yen
