We are proud to introduce you to the third edition of our seasonal capsules, a stylish collection of carefully curated retail products we feel Mamas and babies will love and be able to use all season long.
The winter is a beautiful time of year where the ground sparkles and days become shorter encouraging us to take time to ourself and get clear about our intentions for the upcoming year. Our winter capsule is inspired by nights cuddled up with baby, afternoon cafe dates and long restful slumbers full of sweet dreams.

Though the holidays are a wonderful time where we get to see family we haven't seen in awhile, eat some of our favourite foods and show gratitude for those we love, it can also be somewhat stressful trying to juggle activities and follow traditions. It is therefore important that we create a plan of action now so that we can ensure we are able to stay present and enjoy all of the wonderful things that come with the holiday season.
Here are 5 things you can do to ensure you are happy and healthy this holiday season:
1, Get Organized
Whether you are an old fashioned list writer, or Google Calendar enthusiast, set aside some time to get clear about everything you need to complete this holiday season. Break down each item into bite size tasks with realistic due dates that you feel comfortable with. By having the information stored in one place you will feel more in control and better equipped to deal when the busyness of the season takes over.
2. Do Less
Once you have a better understanding of all the things you need to do, ask yourself which ones are absolutely essential and what could be either delegated or skipped altogether. The holidays are about being present, having fun with your loved ones and practicing gratitude, if you don't make your famous gingerbread cookies or colour coordinate your tree perfectly, is it going to take away from any of that? Probably not. So, don't stress! Do what you can and be in the moment.
3. Schedule Self Care In Advance
Often the times when we are our busiest are the times we need self care the most, so be proactive and schedule your self care in advance! Register for a yoga class, book a relaxing massage or plan a date with yourself and put it in your schedule the way you would any other task you need to complete. When the time comes you will be thankful to have a break where you will return refreshed, grounded and ready to take on the next round of festivities!
4. Set An Intention
Setting an intention is a powerful tool in helping to manifest your desired outcome and can be used as a gentle reminder of how you wish to feel when you get thrown off by stress. An intention can be as simple as a word such as 'harmony' or can be a sentence such as 'I intend to lead from a place of compassion this holiday season.'
Need help creating one? Attend our 'Relax & Renew: A Night Of Restorative Yoga and Crystal Sound Baths' where we will be enjoying a relaxing night of candlelit restorative yoga paired with guided intention setting and meditation, all bathed in the beautiful sounds of crystal bowl vibrations.
5. Take Some Time To Yourself
When all else fails, take some quiet time to yourself, close your eyes and focus on your breath. Regardless of if you give yourself 5 minutes or 5 hours, you are sure to feel better after realigning with your authentic self.
Remember, the holidays are supposed to be fun, so release any pressures around what you should or shouldn't be doing and instead relax and enjoy!

Enjoy a barre class with your babe! This barre class has been designed specifically for postpartum mamas and provides space for them to have their babes beside them while they get their move and sweat on. Hand weights, mat work and the barre work are all incorporated safely into this sequence. This class is perfect for mamas returning back to their movement routines who are looking for a safe and fun workout.
Please note because of space limitations we are only able to accommodate babies who are not crawling. Thank you for understanding.
