    Yoga & Community for Moms with Thea Mistry of Amma Yoga

    Yoga & Community for Moms with Thea Mistry of Amma Yoga

    This week I sat down with Thea Mistry - owner of Amma Yoga, a warm & welcoming yoga studio in Kitchener.  

    Community: If you're a Mom who needs to get out of the house and with other local mamas this is the place for you. 

    Down to earth vibe: I'm not a parent, but I loved the vibe at Amma right away - it was the down to earth, welcoming atmosphere. I didn't feel like I had to show up in LuLu Lemon gear - I could just be myself. 

    Thea Mistry is the founder and owner of Amma Yoga, mama of two, a yoga instructor and birth doula. 

    Family Yoga & Childcare:

     Their family-focused programming includes Prenatal, Mom & Baby, Moms & Movers, Tots, Kids & Family Yoga, as well as a monthly mama group and Fertility Support Group, and childcare in their play-space.  Amma is the perfect place to connect with other local mamas for support and build friendships that last. 

    Accessibility:

    I took a class at Amma in the fall and I loved that the instructor offered a variety of options for levels of intensity - it makes it so much more accessible if you struggle with chronic pain or fatigue. Whether you have an established movement practice, are a total yoga newbie, or are getting back to it after a long hiatus, there is something for you at Amma yoga. 

    Make yourself at home, make a new friend, catch your breath, enjoy moving your body, and connect with a community of support. Drop in classes available - the perfect way to see if it's the right fit for you.

    Episode 42: Creating a Holiday Branding Plan with Melissa from Define & Design Co.

    Episode 42: Creating a Holiday Branding Plan with Melissa from Define & Design Co.

    Do you have a holiday plan for your content?? How are you going to incorporate holiday themes without going off brand?

    This week I sat down with Melissa Macfarlane Heidmiller of Define & Design Co. to talk holiday content planning for your biz.

    The goal is to plan ahead so you can drip out the content over the holidays when you're too busy (or maybe tipsy) and don't have the time or energy to do it!

    You need a framework: monthly or quarterly themes or goals and topics you want to cover so when you sit down to write you can bang it out.

    It's fun to switch things up for the holiday season, but don't stray too far from your branding - just alter it slightly. Using tools like Canva and WordSwag can be great for customizing stock photos or creating your own images, or you can subscribe to stock image websites.

    When it comes to seasonal content, it's important to stick to your brand voice (find out why you need a brand voice document!) and cover topics that are relevant to your brand rather than spewing the holidays onto your social platforms. 

    Tune in, grab Melissa's tips then get planning, and if you've already planned for the holidays, get started on January 2020!

    Melissa lives in Kitchener, ON with her husband, son, and cat. She is a donut lover, tea drinker, and avid fiction reader.

    Surviving the Holidays Part I - Boundaries & Your Mental Health

    Surviving the Holidays Part I - Boundaries & Your Mental Health

    It's time to say no to the holiday madness! Let's talk holiday boundaries! What do you want your holidays to look like? You want to feel your best and truly enjoy them, right? Time to sit down and think about what that really means for you. What are your values? What would the ideal holiday season look like for you? Alcohol - If you're not a big drinker, say no when you're feeling pressured to drink. Especially if you struggle with your mental health, alcohol is a depressant - it will make it worse.  Struggling with anxiety? I cover supplement and tea options that can help. Money - If your budget is tight, say no to spending on gifts that people don't need. That's not what the holidays are about anyway! Communicate with loved ones - be clear on your boundaries, whatever they may be. Dealing with Low Mood: my top lifestyle tips for managing the holiday blues. Time - If you're exhausted, say no to a party, especially if it's one you don't really want to attend anyway. Are you an empath or an introvert? Quiet time is not a luxury for us, it's a necessity, so schedule it in and commit to it.
