Self Defense 

What I said/What she heard will be the focus of our time together.  Often when we are in a passionate discussion with people that we love, our wires can get crossed and lines of communication can break down.

Together in this workshop we will explore how to keep the lines open and create win/win situations for a happy, happy family.   Denise and I will take the moms and girls for some separate time and then we will come back together to practice some new ideas in conversation and connection.

Yoga and Stress Reduction!


Life can be stressful and overwhelming.  Sometimes we can’t find a quiet space – but with yoga you can find quiet and relaxation anywhere that you are.  We will practice some simple yoga poses, mindful thinking and yogic breathing.  All tools that you can use anywhere you go: work, in school, at competitions, public speaking, relaxing before bed and more.
