Everywhere you turn someone is talking about the importance of self care…
But as a mother, you’ve got no clue about what it actually means (surely there’s more to it than hot trainers, bubble baths and manicures!?)
And who has time for self-care anyway?
Between packing yet another snack for your kids, cleaning up after your partner, checking to-do items off at work and essentially managing the health of everyone in your family, you’ve barely got time to poop in peace, let alone carve out hours for yourself each week on the calendar.
I get it!
Not only because as a mom of two girls I’ve been there, but also because as a therapist and mindfulness teacher, I’ve worked with hundreds of women who share your struggles.
The thing is, when you’re already carrying a heavy load, the last thing you need is another to-do list of things you ‘should’ be doing.
It’s not like you don’t know the importance of taking care of yourself — you just haven’t been able to find a way to integrate it into your busy life as a mom.
Despite what you tell yourself, the truth is you don’t need countless hours or a huge bank balance to take care of yourself — you simply need to turn your mothering inward…
The MOM Practice Club
Your resource to learn about, get support and accountability with the practice of mothering oneself mindfully, along with women who are on your shared journey.
While friends, family and social media influencers may have the best intentions on what can help you be healthier/more relaxed/insert “need” here, it’s easy to get caught up in what other people say is “best for you,” and get led astray from YOUR own personal needs.
Inside this club, you will learn how to turn down the external noise and turn up your self-awareness so you can make intentional and conscious choices to take care of your mental/emotional/physical needs moment to moment.
And, you’ll do it all with the support of a community.
Here’s how it breaks down:
Every week, you will receive SHORT & POWERFUL Mom-accessible practices designed to help you grow your mind, body and emotional self-awareness and add tools to your on-demand mothering oneself toolbox.
Accessible via the members app and private podcast, and ranging in duration, means you’ll never have to worry about ‘what to do’ to fill your cup the next time you have free time (regardless of if it’s 2 mins or 20 mins).
Practices include: mindfulness meditations, Yoga Tune Up Therapy Ball self-massage roll outs, and psychology tools.
Monthly MOM OM
"Mothering Oneself Mindfully On Mondays" is a 1 hour live yoga/self-massage with Yoga Tune Up Therapy balls class taught by Sarah or guest faculty. All live classes are available for replays, although showing up for the live offerings is a great commitment to yourself!
Monthly Office Hours
Every third week of the month, there will be a drop in LIVE office hours with Sarah and/or guest faculty. This is a great place to drop in and ask specific questions around your “mothering oneself” practice journey.
If you need a specific Yoga Tune Up Ball rolling suggestion, are stuck with setting time boundaries, or have a block you need help working through, this is your space to receive personalised support, and learn from the questions of others who are all on this shared journey with you!
Searchable Practice Library
You will have access to a growing tool of practices that you will be able to search by time/type/theme etc so you always have what you need at your fingertips.
Community is KEY to making the changes in your life you so desperately crave. As you’ve probably heard, it takes a village to raise a kid… and a mom!
This is why community is at the heart of what the MOM Practice Club provides. Me and your fellow MOM practice club members are here to support and help you in making self-care a regular, unquestionable part of your life.
"To say Sarah and The School of MOM has helped me become a better mom, wife, business partner, and boss, essentially a better human, would be a vast understatement. She has helped me work towards becoming the best version of myself.
She has taught me how to be more present and appreciative of my time with my kids through mindfulness and self-compassion. She has taught me to be less frustrated with challenging situations and/or people in my life through resetting my expectations and using boundaries.
She is the very best at what she does."
- Jamie O'Day, Founder of Nurture by NAPS
This is a unique new membership, so I can’t share what’s being said about it (yet!) -- but here’s what some of my clients are saying about my programs:
The School of MOM has enabled me to connect with a community of women who offer support, understanding and a sense of belonging in a world that can be isolating at times. I've only just begun to explore the practice of mindfulness and can clearly see the benefits of incorporating it into my life. I give all the credit to The School of MOM."
One of the most helpful things for me in Mothering Oneself Mindfully is the sense of community. Even though we are all doing this virtually, there is a sense that we are working alongside each other as like-minded mothers to find ways to find peace in the midst of chaos so that we can then better mother our children. I am finding that I am more aware of my triggers, more aware of what my body needs (movement!!!!), and in turn, working on self compassion. This is a process and a journey. This program has helped me to feel less like I am flailing in the world and gave me a bit of direction. It’s provided accountability, connection, movement (including more ball rolling!!!), and ongoing growth. I feel incredibly lucky to be able to continue this work with Sarah and other women in The School of MOM.
Mindful choice takes practice...
It takes trial and error, one mindful moment and conscious choice after another.
It takes flirting with new ways of thinking, being, doing.
It takes shifting how you think about and relate to yourself and all aspects of your life ie. the people in it, your schedule, etc.
It takes a container where you feel seen, heard and supported… a place where you are not alone on your journey.
I was vaguely familiar with mindfulness practice, but Sarah helped me to strengthen the connection between mindfulness practice and my everyday life.
