This is a remarkable resource. I've learned how capable and resilient my child can be. Now I value her as she really is. It's easier to allow her to experience life in her own way - free from my biases or expectations as to what children should be or do.
These classes are really helping my journey as a mother in lots of small ways each day and week.
After class it's like how you feel after a really good yoga class - more centered, more calm, more in tune.
