with Jillian Pransky

October 4–7 + more than five weeks of online engagement

Throughout your life, you receive well-intended messages of encouragement from those around you: Be strong! You can do anything you want! These messages can be empowering, but they can also fire up a journey of constant goal-setting, achievement, and success-seeking that leads to stress and burn out. It is not about learning to be better and do more, it's about learning to be here and do less. It’s about connecting more with yourself, others, and the world around you. Master yogi Jillian Pransky helps you achieve a deeper state of relaxation and openness, allowing you to access profound intelligence and the wisdom of the mind-body connection.

Insights from Parenting (video)

Let’s be honest, parenting is not an easy job. At the end of the day, you may find yourself being critical of your own reactions, or wishing you had been more wise, calm, and compassionate with your children. The truth is, this dynamic relationship offers plenty of opportunities to develop your practice—your ability to pause and relax in order to choose a more mindful, compassionate way to move forward with your children and yourself.  In this video, Jillian shares thoughts on parenting as a posture and an opportunity to learn, as well as some simple but potent tools that have helped her be more present in the journey of parenthood.  

Bonus content is available after program registration.
