Hey Mama, Let’s Talk
I’m Naomi and I am on a mission to revolutionize motherhood.
I’m really over the status quo story of motherhood that says being a mom is supposed to be an exercise in martyrdom.
I’m tired of normalizing the idea that a mom’s mental and physical health is less important than that of her kids.
I’m sick of hearing stories from my mom friends about how exhausted, burned out, and unsupported they feel all the time from the daily act of mothering.
I am ready to create a revolution of moms who want to take back motherhood and transform their lives and chart a course towards a new frontier in mom life.
Pssst….if you are too, let’s chat. I’d love to hear your ideas and share mine! Schedule a quick chat with me so we can get to know one another a little better and rock this thing called motherhood!
I didn’t always feel this way though.
I mean, I’ve always been an activist and have always liked raging against the machine, but before I had kids, I had no idea how tough #momlife really is.
Or maybe I just figured that I’d do mom life differently because I thought I had ninja yoga skills that would totally come in handy in when trying to get my infant to sleep. (Spoiler alert: being able to do handstands doesn’t help you get your kids to sleep any faster than anyone else’s. Learned that one the hard way)
Before I had kids, I also took a lot of things for granted, including my ability to take care of myself. To be fair, I was (and am still) very Type-A, so I wasn’t awesome at taking care of myself pre-kids, but at least I felt like I had the freedom to do so whenever I wanted.
Flash forward to giving birth to my first child and I was a hot mess. I was so swamped by the demands of motherhood and the desire to maintain my work schedule that I wasn’t taking care of myself.
Not even a little bit.
I was trying to squeeze myself back into my former Type-A life and making myself sick in the process.
That’s when I realized things needed to change.
Long story short: I made some changes.
Conscious Healthy Mama was born.
After studying, practicing, and teaching yoga for over a decade, I shifted my focus towards moms who feel like I once did.
Moms who have gotten stuck in the trenches of motherhood and can’t see a way out.
Moms who have forgotten that their needs matter.
Moms who don’t ever give themselves a break.
Moms who are ready to rewrite the story of what healthy motherhood looks and feels like.
I combined my years of yoga experience with my years of Ayurveda study with my passion for and study of habit change and I started to create programs specifically to serve and support moms.
Every day I am more and more certain that this is the path I’m meant to be on and I won’t stop walking it until we change the way we view ourselves as mothers, as women, and as human beings.
So here I am, 5 years into motherhood and healthier, happier, and more connected to my own needs than ever before.
It’s been a bumpy ride, but life is rarely smooth sailing. It’s more about how you ride the waves, right? I’m slowly learning to surf the currents of motherhood and life with greater ease and joy.
I’m definitely not perfect, but that’s ok. I like having things to work on. I love tapping into my capacity to transform.
If you do too, I think we’ll get along really well.
