    MINDFULNESS AND BREATHWORK FOR PREGNANCY, BIRTH AND RECOVERY @ FEMME AMSTERDAM A Series of workshops created for an expecting mama. Join all, l or only the ones that interest you.

    “The intention behind creating this series of workshops is to help you to become an expert in her own breath. So much that you wont need to ‘remember’ how to breathe when contractions start. You will simply know the basic principles. You will also become much more comfortable with your own mind and in your body, having more trust and awareness. You will learn about and practice tools like breathwork, meditation to process emotions and self compassion. These skills will not only help you support yourself during pregnancy and childbirth. They will stay with you and enrich your life and relationships – forever.” ––– Katia Khomich, a Yoga Therapist, Mindfulness coach.

    Why to join? This is a unique program bringing together breathwork, mindfulness and conversation for birth and beyond. It is designed to help you seamlessly build habits around optimal breathing, paying attention to your body and emotions, responding to stress and discomfort and processing a variety of emotions – wisely. I believe that you should not wait for your first contraction in order to start breathing mindfully. You can start implementing habits of focusing, feeling and thinking – today.

Katia’s course has helped me cope better with challenging experiences during my pregnancy, such as fear, discomfort and negative thoughts.The course has helped me become more positive, resilient, present and compassionate in a period when all of that has been much needed.” Mari

    "*I found the workshop very useful. Hearing about mindfulness and practical tactics on how to incorporate that in our daily lives was very beneficial. I did also like connecting and hearing from other moms about their experiences.I would highly recommend mindfulness to everyone who is pregnant." – Diana

    “I had a wonderful experience in this class. Can’t emphasise more the importance of taking a moment to slow down, be present, and relax (which is crucial for expecting and new moms). I'd give a solid 10/10. The instructor's voice had a transformative quality, guiding us to different dimensions during meditation (prior body movement exercises have definitely helped too). This class provided ample time for reflection and helped me feel grounded in the moment and for a few days after. Highly recommended!” – Dina
