Want to have at least an hour and a half each week to feel calmer and focus on you?
Want to lay the foundations for feeling better about yourself, your parenting, and your relationships with others?
Want to come together in a group of supportive women to share some of the ups and downs of being a mama?
...then come and Be calmed...
on an introductory course aimed at bringing mindfulness and self compassion into the lives of busy mums. So don't expect lengthy practices and lots of homework.
Do expect a warm and nurturing group atmosphere with a chance to practice together and some practical tips and tools you can take away each week to help you when real life hits (usually in the form of your little people).
Over 8 weeks we will explore the true essence of mindfulness and self compassion. It's a great place to start if you want take your practice beyond what you've heard on an app or read in a book, and experience lasting benefits.
You will leave each session feeling like you have hit the pause button
then re-set how you continue for the rest of the week.
This is 'me' time that really works to support and guide you so that you can carry on being a truly Good Enough Mama at home and at work and at play (because we all need some down time that doesn't involve Peppa Pig).
The course will help you to
- create your own self-care toolkit of meditations, techniques and coping strategies
- deal more effectively with stress
- build resilience for whatever life throws at you
- feel more content, in control and at ease
What can you expect?
Each week we will meet for one and a half hours in a supportive and friendly group on Zoom (please note first session will be slightly longer to include orientation).
There will also be support via the Facebook group, downloadable audio mediations and reflective workbooks to use between sessions.

Who is this course suitable for?
I really got so much more out of this course than I would have expected. It has really opened my mind more about the power of Mindfulness. Ali has such a clear, calm and kind way of facilitating and I found it a very supportive learning environment. Ali has such a wonderful energy and is just so lovely to work with, just listening to her is therapeutic in itself! I very strongly recommend this course to anyone looking to bring more balance into our hectic modern lifestyles.
This course has provided me with invaluable insight to how I can take a step back from my busy everyday life and just stop for a couple of minutes, take some time for myself. It also has given me new skills in coping and assessing situations I would previously be unable to cope with, and how I can respond to them. Thank you so much Ali.
The mindfulness course helped me focus my thoughts on what is important to me and to find time in my busy life to relax. I enjoyed listening to Ali's calm, warm and friendly voice guiding me through the practice. I found chatting with like-minded women helped to put my own struggles into perspective and made me feel part of a wider community rather than taking on the world alone. Now when I find myself running around after everyone I remind myself to breathe!
