Mom's Afternoon Out
When your kids go back to school this fall, will you need time to replenish your heart and mind?
Five Elements Birth Services and Aditi Loveridge, Mindfulness Coach and Teacher have partnered to offer you an afternoon of holistic self-care.
The afternoon includes:
~ A smudging of the space and each participant (if they choose) to clear the space of any negative energies that might be present
~ We will use meditation to mindfully move through YIN yoga postures to connect body and mind (no yoga or meditation experience necessary and postures can be adapted for pregnancy)
~ Journals will be provided for reflection and to set new intentions for the coming months
~ A Salt Bowl Ceremony to deepen your intentions. Each participant adds their own special ingredient (essential oils, sage, finely chopped citrus peel, lavender, honey, sugar, etc) to the bowl. Once the ceremony is completed, everyone gets to take a jar of the intention-filled salt home. It is a beautiful reminder not only of your intentions, but also of our connection to one another as a community.
~ Each participant will receive a free guided meditation recording from Aditi Loveridge and a swag bag full of local goodies, discounts, and coupons!
~ A safe and supportive environment to try something new with like-minded people

Prenatal Intention Setting
An afternoon of Prenatal Yoga, Meditation, and Mala-making with Aditi Loveridge, mindfulness coach and teacher, and Cher Compton from Dragonfly Maternity
Take time for yourself as you prep for your labour & delivery experience, and join us for an afternoon of body awareness, presence, intention setting and self care.
Beginning with a Prenatal Yoga session to provide education around postures that aid in the labour & delivery experience, this part of the workshop will allow you to gain awareness of your body and will provide you with impactful tools to take you through your experience with knowledge and inner wisdom.
Followed by a guided meditation, your focus will move to creating an intention around your journey to meeting your little one, whether this is your first pregnancy or it’s your fifth.
Weaving in your intention to the mala-making, you will have the opportunity to infuse that concept into a beautiful piece that you can take into your labour & delivery. Following the traditional rituals used in India to create your mala, this piece will serve as your tangible reminder of the intention you set, the bond between you and baby, and the grounding element of your empowerment through your journey.
This workshop will include:
-smudging of the space and each participant (if they wish) to clear any negative energies that might be present
– tea to sip throughout the afternoon
– package of information to take with you, on prenatal and postnatal care
– guided meditation to help you uncover your intentions
-demonstration and guidance on how to string your mala together

-A safe and supportive environment to have fun, connect with your baby, prepare for labor, and build relationships with other moms-to-be!
