Conscious Parenting Workshop

Parenting with a difference!
facilitated by Falguni Mather

Monday 14th October 10:00am – 2pm
Venue: The Body Group
Fee: $1,250 / person

Conscious Parenting workshopFrom homework, bed time, sibling rivalry and bullying issues to leaving for university, dating, and beyond – parenting can be an emotional roller coaster no matter how old your children are, bringing guilt, stress, frustration, worry, self doubt and more frustration.

Parenting is one of the toughest and most important jobs in the world and yet we have no training for it. What this means is that we often parent from an unconscious basis of our own experience.

Parenting need not be stressful when we can parent consciously and mindfully. This workshop is about noticing our own patterns, getting ourselves out of our own way, building authentic relationships with our children so they can be self-assured, empathic and resilient.

As a parent myself, I know how stress can build up and affect all the family members. In my parenting journey I have found a few tools and techniques to be invaluable, which you will learn in this workshop. These tools include the EFT tapping technique, Listening skills, Building rapport, developing empathy and more.

Learning to parent “consciously” has been transformative in resolving issues that have invariably surfaced within our family over the years. My children are now 20 and 16 years old, and our relationship has never been better. I am passionate about sharing my work with all parents out there because I know this works.

In this half-day workshop I will demonstrate how EFT and other tools enable us to parent consciously and mindfully. I will teach you how to use the EFT technique for your own stress, as well as how to teach it to your children.

This workshop will address:

  • Calming young children having strong emotional feelings
  • Dealing with nightmares and fears
  • Issues with friends, bullying, isolation, feeling left out
  • Aches and pains
  • School/University stress, confidence, performance anxiety
  • Moving school, home or country
  • Helping children of all ages deal with stress in their lives

Helpful for you as a parent to address:

  • Building a closer bond and connection with your child
  • Recognising fears vs. values
  • Frustration with sibling rivalry, child’s behaviour
  • Anger with children
  • Exhaustion as a parent
  • Feeling like a bad parent
  • Not feeling connected to your child/children
  • Helpless with helping your child
  • Feeling alone as a parent

When we can be present to our children and their needs, we can help them to effectively deal with life’s challenges and have the confidence and resilience to pursue their dreams. We can also ensure true bonding and connection in our relationships with our children.

6 Week Support Group

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Support Group for Emotional Well Being: 6 sessions over 6 weeks

Are you in need of support for self-care, to maximise your emotional well-being?

It’s so much easier sometimes to get by in life using the same old coping mechanisms. But you could choose differently, to value yourself enough to reach out and connect and learn new ways to start living instead of coping.

Sharing and being supported in a group can be profoundly helpful; it can often bring new perspectives to help you see your situation a new light, bringing new solutions as you build connection with the other group members.

In this closed support group, we practice the EFT tapping technique, grounding and breath exercises, self-compassion and mindfulness as we share our experiences within the confidential group space.

You will come away with practical tools and strategies to implement into your busy life.

This weekly group is an opportunity to receive continuous support for your emotional well being. It provides a safe and confidential space to free us from the emotional burdens that we all carry with us. Bring any issues you know are weighing you down, limiting you or holding you back and be open to receiving support.

A cost effective option compared to individual sessions.

Each group accommodates maximum 6 people and runs once a week over 6 weeks.

Group EFT workshops

Mondays 10:30am – 12pm @ The Body Group
Cost 330/session (1,980 for 6 weeks)
Sessions starting in August 2019: Aug 19, 26 / Sep 2, 9, 16, 23

EFT tapping group for your community

Are you part of a community that struggles with the same difficulties?
Do you find that simply talking about those problems doesn’t bring permanent solutions or the relief that you seek?

Working in groups can be a powerful way to access change within you. It can often bring new perspectives to help you see your situation a new light, resulting in new solutions. Furthermore, working in groups can ease a sense of isolation as it can build connection with the other members. The same as individual sessions, group sessions and workshops are also completely confidential. Attending a group session is also a cost effective way of accessing support for yourself.

If you would like to host an EFT Workshop in your community: for your parents’ group, divorced singles group, new mothers’ group, coping with serious illness, trauma recovery group, LGBT support group, grieving and loss support, or any other kind of community, I’d be happy to run an EFT Support Group to fit the specific needs of your group or community.

EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is a powerful yet simple and effective way to get to the roots of stresses we carry, reducing or eliminating negative feelings, so we can be empowered to move forward.

Private yoga classes with Falguni

Private yoga classes
Alignment based, beginner and intermediate levels.
Private yoga classes for up to two students.

Working individually with you provides the opportunity to support your specific needs and goals. Consistent yoga practice can help release tight hamstrings, rounded shoulders, an aching lower back or a stiff neck.

Do you go to the gym, or run, or play a sport? Yoga can help to stretch and align your body to complement your regular physical activities (a yoga practice will, in fact, enhance your physical performance). Practicing yoga brings more awareness to sensation, action and movement, enhancing connection, strength and flexibility.

I will lead you through a suitably paced practice to enable a fuller exploration of each pose, while releasing any tension held in the muscles and connective tissue of the body.

The class will include physical poses to enhance flexibility, strength and balance, breathing exercises to cleanse, detox and let go of stress, and some mindfulness meditation to access focus and calm. Instructed with props and options to support your individual practice.

Venue: The Body Group
14th Floor, Prosperous Building, 48-52 Des Voeux Road, Central, HK [directions ]

To book your space: call 2167 7305 or e-mail.

About me teaching yoga:
An avid practitioner of yoga, I love to share my experience and knowledge with others. I see yoga as a way to connect inwards and relate to ourselves in a world that is constantly asking us to look to the external.

Yoga, for me, is a simple and effective way to release stress and tension stored in the body. Not just the physical, but also the mental patterns and emotional experiences we tend to store. These are the negative experiences we don’t or can’t process, which get pushed into the unconscious and can, over time, manifest physically.

Working with emotional and mental health as a counsellor, and with physical symptoms as a META-Health coach, I see in clients as well as in my own body, how this connection between mind and body is very real. Age old wisdom and philosophy has talked about it for thousands of years, and science is now proving it.

Having developed a consistent yoga practice since 2004, yoga has been my anchor, my release, my journey, my home away from home. I feel blessed to share my experience and welcome you to my classes.

Breath Work

Breath Work

Breath awareness is an integral part of releasing stress and anxiety.

When we feel anxious, panicky, or even unconsciously stressed, we tend to take short breaths (called shallow breathing or chest breathing). As a result, our body doesn’t receive enough oxygen, which limits blood flow to important organs and creates tension in our muscles and joints.
This is a physiological reaction to perceived external danger, so when we continuously take shallow breaths we are actually sending signals to our body that we are under threat.

Anything from being stuck in a traffic jam or standing in a long queue, to feeling claustrophobic in a crowded space or even remembering a past traumatic event, can make us anxious and put us into stress mode. Our minds can perceive these situations as threatening/stressful and our body reacts to our thought patterns.

It is imperative to start becoming aware of when we are putting ourselves into stress mode, as these are usually subconscious reactions.

When we breathe full, deep breaths using the full capacity of our lungs, not only are we nourishing our cells with more oxygen, but we are sending calming signals to our body. In the same way that stressful thoughts in our subconscious mind can create negative changes in our physical body, initiating conscious changes (breathing) in our body can create a calmer state of mind.

Stressful thoughts = shallow breath & tightness in muscles
Deep, full breaths = calmer mind + calmer body

To explain the intrinsic connection between the body and mind, Dr. James Gordon, Director and Founder, Center for Mind-Body Medicine, says : “the brain and peripheral nervous system, the endocrine and immune systems, and indeed, all the organs of our body and all the emotional responses we have, share a common chemical language and are constantly communicating with one another.”

There are many breathing techniques and exercises that we can use to release stress from our body & mind. The first step, as always, is to be mindful, to become aware. Only then can we pause and step back before we can breathe our way to a sense of calm and to new perspectives.

“Correct and conscious breath is the first and most simple step toward releasing stress and anxiety.”
