    a place to BE as much as DO

    WEEKLY LIVES VIA ZOOM

     

    Sometimes there are babies there when you're trying to practice.

     

    Sometimes mamas haven't slept well.

     

    Some folks will get more chance to move others will be tending to baby more.

     

    Try not to place to big an expectation on getting things done in class.

     

    You can rock up in your PJs if it's that kind of a day.
    It's a no judgement zone.

    What to expect in a Mama Circle
