Move from Stressed to Rested

Being a mother is stunningly beautiful and…honestly, down right hard.

  • There are the obvious challenges to consider; your kids take priority with scheduling, changes in sleep patterns, always having someone dependant on you. There are no parent days off.

  • And there are the not so obvious challenges; connecting to this new version of you, stress/worry over another human who depends on you and how you need to show up for them, different dynamics within your relationships, a new physical body, creating boundaries for yourself.

Navigating the highs and lows of motherhood can feel confusing, draining, and stressful. Somedays it feels like everything is perfect, wrapped in love, and the next you are thrown so far from your grounded, peaceful self, that balance seems surely like a myth.

Imagine:

  • Consistently honouring your self-care needs, without compromising your role as mother / leader of the family.

  • Catching and preventing your stress build up, before, it explodes.

  • Knowing the perfect things to do to feel calmer and self-connected in the face of any stress - Yours or theirs.

  • Seamlessly slipping in bits of rejuvenating ‘me-time’ amongst being a mom.

  • Feeling more focused, present and calm with yourself and your family.

  • Teaching your children how to self-care through leading by example.

  • Being connected to who you are outside of all the ‘hats’ you wear.

  • Having a village of like-minded women to support.

Even as an expert in wellness, I struggled with my self-care when I became a mom.

Although I gained a whole new bright and beautiful part of me, I lost my ability to put myself first. I kept giving from an empty cup. Soon there wasn’t anything left for me and I felt drained, a stranger to myself.

On the outside my family was perfect. Honestly, I even I fooled myself into thinking I had everything under control.
But I didn’t.

I had been avoiding the fundamentals that nourished my wellbeing. That helped me be cared for. As a result, my relationship became strained, my daughter ran the show and I felt lost, disconnected, to who I was at my core.

Lucky me, I FOUND THE SOLUTION.

I had wanted someone else to save me. To do the work for me. I had to mother all day, I don’t want to do anything else! Finally I made the choice to empower myself. I began diligently integrating the tools and practices I work with as a yoga therapist. Finding what works best with the demands of motherhood, though personal experience and clients. It needed to be quick, easy and effective.

Of course, IT WORKED!

Now you get to reap the rewards, and empower yourself, as I guide you through this amazing creation.

YES!

Rested Mama is not a race. This unique participant centred coaching program encourages you to go at the pace YOU need.

I have broken down the core content into chunks of approximately 15 minutes or less. As your guide, I drip out suggested approaches over 12 weeks. I build in ‘white space' weeks’ to let you feel permission to rest.

You have immediate, lifetime access to the lessons. So there’s no hurry! While we are moving through the live portion of the program, I am right there with you, diving deeper into the topics, interests and issues dictated by you and rest the rested mama members.

Rested mama is helping you create your self-care habits and practices sustainably, so they stay with you over your lifetime.

Jennifer talks a lot about finding joy in the moment that you are in. Before the program, running around with the kids I wasn’t finding much joy in the moment. To be honest, I was angry most of the time, mostly at the kids, for no reason. Hearing Jennifer talk about finding the joy and different ways to address situations helped me out a lot. I could look at situations, like when my kids moving like snails, knowing that I can’t really control this situation, so I’ll just roll with it. Rolling with anything isn’t really a skill I possess, but just thinking about the program and her different way to handle things gave me some empowerment to try things differently, which seems silly, but worked! I am eternally grateful for that tidbit of advice, among many of the things I pulled out of the program.

It’s like I have finally received the ability to give myself permission to rest when I feel like I need it.
I just finished the lesson on cycles, and I’m tearing up because every woman needs to learn this. I only began to pay attention to my cycles when I was trying to get pregnant, because well, you need to know when you are fertile. But never have I thought of using the knowledge of my cycle in this way. You have opened up my world! I am so excited to have discovered this huge piece of the puzzle. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I joined to change my mindset. It’s helped. I feel connected to the community of women seeking wellness. It is so uplifting and feels less lonely! The video on the sleep cycle was my favourite because I was having trouble sleeping. Thank you so much Jen for all the love and care you are sharing with us. I’m very grateful!
— Esther
I have found the first lessons so helpful. I am tracking my cycles more closely then I ever have, which is so helpful and feels like a real gift. I feel this knowledge is deepening my understanding of how to meet/honour my own needs and I’m grateful. The program has given me some very well timed reminders, and I started using supplements again that are already lifting my energy in major ways. It is also lovely to hear from others in the group and I LOVED seeing those success scripts! I needed this!! Thank you

When I was pregnant, a neighbour told me « sleep now because you’ll never sleep again! ». Hmm, ok, not cool lady. She wasn’t far from the truth but that’s before I met Jen and her Rested mama program. 

One thing you quickly learn as a parent is that rest is key. When your personal time takes a toll because of your parenting duties, you feel depleted, frustrated, tired.  I used to push myself to exhaustion to make the most out of my days but that’s not a sustainable rhythm...

Jen provided me so many helpful and accessible ways to feel recharged and prepared to welcome all the challenges and joys of parenting with more ease and peace!  The energy tracker is a great tool and cyclical living has been a true revelation...and I couldn’t live without yoga nidra. 

I absolutely love being in this program. Everything feels so right. I feel more focused, present, calm. I still have my ups and downs as everyone does but now my prevention and recovery skills are sharpened. 

It’s all foundational knowledge I feel I should have known forever and everyone should know! Slowly but surely integrating all these gems. Jen is an awesome loving caring and compassionate human and I am so lucky to have encountered her a few years ago. Participating in this program and allowing myself the time to go through the different modules is part of the best decisions I made in my life and I wish every mom could access this valuable knowledge! It’s a great gift to give yourself but also your family!!

As mothers its like we are these gold of heart mermaids who, while busy being Superheroes for our families, leave our own selves to dry out on a random sandy beach, not realizing that we are part of our own family and deserve saving, too!

The Rested Mama program reminds us of our own inherent value as human beings, that we are part of a greater community of other Mama Warriors, and propagates the idea that Wellness is not limited to a specific time and place, but is a mindset, a toolbox of creative and powerful habits and routines, and most practically, that Wellness is achievable 5 minutes at a time! So no matter where you are right now, whether you are already drying out or want to prevent yourself from drying out, a calm and peaceful ocean awaits you. You are worth it, so make time and make yourself effervescent once again!

Awaiting you are all kinds of delicious treats like self-massage pampering from all the muscle tensions of carrying baby, having an empathetic life coach and cheerleader who is a Mom who has been through what you are going through, and finally reconnecting with your body as your precious temple, your mind as your ultimate best friend, and your spirited ability to be an artist of your own emotions, transforming any negative thoughts or strong emotions into fuel for a lifelong promise of self-love, self-compassion, and thus, the path to being the most balanced and cherished version of beautifully complex, awe-inspiring, authentic Y-O-U! You are Not alone, you Can do this, and you can even Enjoy the Journey.

FAQ


Do I have to be a mom?

No, all women are busy and usually put themselves last. I simply want moms to know I’ve got their back, because I am a mom and have thought of each of them and what their different lives are like everyday since my daughter was born. How have we done this without our village?!

I’m really busy. How much times does this take? 

10-15 minutes,  3 x per week is my base recommendation.

How does it work?

You sign up and get access to the entire core content right away. Over 3 months, you will receive 12 weekly emails guiding you through the content and giving you the basics of what I suggest. Our group coaching takes place in form of live streamed sessions with me. Yes, they are recorded if you can't make it live. In these sessions we dive deeper into content and questions naturally come up. These live sessions are guided by the you and the group to supported with what your needs are. I am there for gentle accountability. Yes it's over 12 weeks, but you can go as fast or as slow as you like. You need to honour your pace, otherwise stressing over it and trying to ‘get it done’ defeats the purpose of the whole course! 

What kind of support can i receive? 

This is a participant centred program. I have all the core content ready for you, and from there your questions and needs allows us to go deeper into the work. I host live sessions in the online program for the coaching aspect, adding understanding, digesting of content and personal guidance. You have access to me directly for questions and aid, plus you will connect with other women who are in your similar situation, which always feels supportive. I also have a little surprise you get to open in the mail ;-)
